THE FUTURE OF AUTONOMOUS CONTROL ROOM OPERATIONS

Just as planes are now standardized to have auto-pilot that helps (but doesn’t replace) the human pilot, Crux OCM works alongside human operators in the control room enhancing efficiency and safety.

Who is CruxOCM?

CRUX OCM enables the autonomous control room of tomorrow, operating within the safety constraints of today. Combining advanced physics-based methodologies with machine learning, CRUX software helps clients increase throughput production and energy efficiency (up to 10%), improve safety, and ensure operators stay safe while contributing to a seamless, continuous operation.

The Human in the Room

Just as planes are now standardized to have auto-pilot that helps (but doesn’t replace) the human pilot, Crux OCM works alongside human operators in the control room.

Currently, operations are checklist and procedure-based. By equipping front-line employees with the advantages of machine-learning enhanced automation, we’re improving safety: helping operators reduce risk, manage their workload and reduce the number of manual processes.

Automation is the aim, but humans are the heart of our business. Our longterm goal is to work within industry regulations to create a remote working environment, helping operators stay safe and ensuring operations continue even as the world changes.
