Synaptic Business Automation, an industrial automation and control business concept expresses Yokogawa Electric Corporation’s commitment to working with its customers to sustain their creation of corporate values. Manufacturers face a variety of challenges today, ranging from volatile shifts in the price of crude oil and other raw materials and stiffening environmental and safety regulations to structural changes in their industries.

To remain competitive, they must have the agility to adapt quickly to change.

To guide its efforts to assist companies in meeting such challenges, Yokogawa adheres to a vision statement that reads, “Through ‘Process Co-Innovation,’ Yokogawa creates new value with its customers-for a brighter future.” We help companies improve efficiency and profitability by bringing together business units to work more effectively and by eliminating barriers that impede the flow of information and goods throughout the supply chain and between companies.

As the Internet of Things gains traction, a digitalisation of processes is underway whereby the use of big data and artificial intelligence is yielding valuable insights needed to make business decisions. The Synaptic Business Automation concept clearly expresses Yokogawa’s commitment to using the latest information technologies and its decades of experience with plant management and industrial processes, portfolio of automation solutions, and consulting expertise to help its customers transform their businesses.

The Synaptic Business Automation concept takes its name from the synapse, a structure in the nervous system that plays a role in the transfer of signals to other parts of the human body.

Synaptic Business Automation expresses an ideal state for a business whereby the synthesising of data, systems, organisations, knowledge, and supply chains adds value and strengthens competitiveness.

The linked data on manufacturing processes, plant operations, human resources, and supply chains can be organised, integrated, controlled, broken down, and analysed to yield insightful decisions at various levels in the organisation, from operations in the field to corporate management.

Synaptic Business Automation offers resilient operation, optimised production, and aids business innovation.
