Basic Materials

There’s nothing basic about our approach to Basic Materials.

Within SDI you’ll find industry professionals who specialize in the inner workings of the industries we serve. We understand your world, and how to apply Best-in-Class strategies and processes that make it work more efficiently – and more profitably.

The Basic Materials industries we serve include companies with large portfolios of locations, asset-intensive facilities, maintenance-intensive production lines, and a focus on uptime and reliability:

  • Forestry & Paper
  • Metals
  • Mining
  • Chemical

SDI expertise applied in the real world.

Let’s say a key piece of equipment in your chemical plant goes down. Your process is interrupted, a sizable batch is rendered useless, equipment is damaged – suddenly OEE takes on a whole new meaning. Or the process rollers in your paper mill become jammed. Wood pulp can’t become beautiful linen stock – parts availability makes all the difference between profit and loss.

Success Story

Our former solution provider was not independent; they were a supplier of parts. It's not the best thing to have a supplier be your MRO outsourcing provider. With SDI, we have a truly independent sourcing agent looking after our best interests.

SDI at Work

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
