Emerson introduces Operational Certainty, a technology and engineering-based program that the company says is designed to help industrial companies achieve top performance and recover more than $1 trillion in operational losses globally. Emerson is introducing new peer benchmarking insights that will reportedly bring better perspective on best practices and technologies to achieve top quartile performance in the areas of safety, reliability, production and energy management.

The company is also launching a new Operational Certainty consulting practice plus expanded project execution methodologies and resources. In addition, Emerson announces a new Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) digital ecosystem which it says will provide the technology foundation for companies to securely implement Industrial IoT.

Emerson starts with Operational Certainty Workshops, consultant-led sessions that help customers pinpoint their causes of poor performance, prioritize actions that can yield the greatest improvement and establish a scalable work plan for achieving those results, according to the company. In 2015, Emerson introduced the opportunity for top quartile performance in capital projects with Project Certainty, a program to help the industry address a crisis in poor capital project performance. Emerson reported industry data demonstrating that 65% of all projects over $1 billion fail to meet financial and schedule goals.
