Being among the leaders of digital innovation in the cement industry, we are harnessing the power of digital solutions to transform our business end-to-end, from supplier to customer, with an agile and entrepreneurial approach.
BUILDING THE SMART CEMENT PLANT OF THE FUTURE
With signature digital solutions tailored to the needs of the cement industry, we are creating the “smart cement plant of the future” to ensure ultimate efficiency and delivery of high-quality products and services, with an eye on the present and future needs of our customers.
Real Time Optimizers (RTO) in the cement plant
One of the first AI solutions to be used in cement production, the RTO solution integrates sensors in equipment across our plants that record huge volumes of operational data. The ‘big data’ is then transmitted, organized, studied and utilized for the real-time optimization of production using Artificial Intelligence. Real-time optimization has already resulted in significant benefits for production, such as minimizing energy consumption, reducing CO2 emissions and improving productivity.
Spare parts Inventory Optimization
An advanced analytical methodology tailored to the specifics of the cement industry, used to identify the optimum inventory management policy for spare parts in the cement plants.
Leveraging the wealth of data on all the movements of the spare parts in the cement plant, from procuring to consuming, and through developing advanced statistical algorithms and multivariate simulations, the methodology provides the optimum inventory replenishment policy at spare part SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) level that minimizes the total cost of the component.
ΑΙ based predictive maintenance
Our new generation AI-based predictive maintenance solution takes an innovative approach in the global cement sector, as it applies an end-to-end failure prediction algorithm that uses all the sensors of a plant simultaneously instead of focusing on individual assets. This AI approach monitors the entire plant for anomalies and seeks to be one step ahead of possible problems by preventing unplanned failures. The state-of-the-art solution maximizes the operational efficiency and reliability of the plant to world-class performance, benefiting from lower repair and maintenance costs and reduced downtime.
TITAN Cement Group launched a new company CemAI to deliver this next generation AI maintenance solution to the cement industry.

CREATING AN ECOSYSTEM OF DIGITAL INNOVATION
We are building an ecosystem of digital innovation by continuously investing in digital upskilling and partnering with a new breed of external collaborators. From academia to start-ups, we work all together to push the boundaries of digitalization and create a smarter and more sustainable built environment.
Digital Center of Competence
We have established our Group Digital Center of Competence in 2020 to further strengthen the Group’s capabilities to develop and implement new digital solutions, with an emphasis on the manufacturing, supply chain and customer domains, built on the foundation of an integrated data platform and a new flexible and agile working model for our operations.
The Digital Center of Competence comprises a very strong pool of experts – data scientists, data engineers and integrators – who closely collaborate with our domain experts to build innovative solutions and support their fast roll out.
Equipping our people with digital skills
Building on our long tradition of building capabilities and developing talent, with an entrepreneurial mindset and a values-driven culture, we are further building our talent, both in our core competences, as well as in new skillsets.
During our digitalization journey we are investing in developing the digital skills of our people,
promoting agile collaboration and people empowerment, fostering cognitive diversity and bringing different minds together to work on creating digital solutions, allowing the company to grow faster and stronger.
Partnering with a new generation of external collaborators
We establish enduring partnerships with startups, academia, equipment manufacturers, consultants, to explore the next breakthrough digital tools that will drive forward our digitalization journey.
We are seeking to partner with the most gifted and talented digital minds as we aim to identify the most impactful technologies that will solve challenges across our operations, throughout the value chain. Together we are transforming forward-thinking ideas into applicable solutions, experiment with pilot projects and implement digital rollouts at scale, across our regions.
Re-Generation Academy for Digital Acceleration
We have partnered with Re-Generation, the largest paid placement, professional, and personal development program in Greece, to launch an innovative series of programs called Re-Generation Academy for Digital Acceleration| Data Science Lab – Powered by TITAN (RADA). RADA focuses on promoting digital acceleration in Greece and targets young people with an interest in data science and Digital transformation, a sector with growing demand.
The Academy has completed two cycles, focusing on data science, in 2020 and 2021, and launched a third cycle on project management for agile digital projects in early 2022.
The future of prescriptive plant maintenance
CemAI is a TITAN Cement Group’s company that provides the next-generation predictive maintenance solution based on Artificial Intelligence for the cement industry.
