The Operational Technologies (OT) Cluster

Digitisation and technology are driving unprecedented change within the mining, resources, and manufacturing industries. Increasingly, companies across the globe are digitising physical processes through the implementation of industry 4.0 technologies such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), Cloud Computing, Big Data Analytics, Simulation (Digital Twin), Autonomous Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to automate various functions.

The 4Sight OT Cluster provides key 4IR technologies and services to help industrial customers with their full end-to-end digital transformation journey while following a cost-effective and low-risk self-funding methodology. The approach allows customers to remain competitive in the digital economy while ensuring any digital initiative has a 6-month or better return on investment (ROI).

The 4Sight OT Cluster consists of three key divisions, namely Asset Optimisation (4Sight BluESP), Asset Automation (4Sight Age Technologies) and Asset Simulation (4Sight SET).

Asset Optimisation

APC (Advanced Process Control)

Maximise production & improve reliability in ever-changing upstream conditions. Increase production up to 5%, reduce energy usage & mitigate process upsets with Advanced Process Control technology designed for upstream processes.

MES (Manufacturing Execution System)

Bring together the power of data to operate your plant more efficient, with advanced visualisation software that helps production, quality and process engineers remedy and avoid events that limit production profitability.

APM (Asset Performance Management)

Maximise Safety, Sustainability and Productivity by Turning Unplanned Downtime into Planned Downtime. The industry-leading solution combines machine learning with predictive analytics to anticipate issues before they occur. Keep assets running at peak efficiency, improve safety and eliminate costly unplanned downtime.

APPS & Analytics (Actionable Insight)

We offer a suite of software, analytics and apps that collects and analyses data across different datasets presenting powerful visualisation to help users understand the information and make smarter and faster decisions to improve operational excellence.

Services Include:

  • E-learning
  • Classroom Training
  • Virtual Training
  • Service Level Agreements
  • Consulting
  • Onsite Support

Asset Automation

Intelligent Motor Control Solutions

We provide smart solutions for your motor control, power quality, and energy management challenges. We use industry-leading components that offer the most comprehensive process control and energy management capabilities in the industry, including overload controllers, process and machine drives, surge protection, circuit breakers, power metering and enclosures.

Process Automation Systems

Our clients' successes drive us. With this in mind, we dissect a client's processes to effectively conceptualise, design and implement an entirely integrated system that meets all requirements. At 4Sight AGE Technologies, we utilise the best automation and electrical equipment, drives, power and energy products from industry leaders. All our engineered systems are developed under an ISO-certified quality management system and undergo Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT).

Industrial Information & Communications Technology

We supply networks for high-performance machine applications. Industrial Ethernet has the requisite level of robustness and reliability, connecting all your business levels, from the plant floor to enterprise, using one standard technology.

Energy Management Instrumentation

We provide electrical power meters, energy meters and power monitoring software for power monitoring and energy management.


We supply and support a wide range of process instrumentation that provides high-quality measurement solutions to monitor and provide analysis of your plant.

Services include:

  • System Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • Project Management
  • E, C & I Commissioning
  • Onsite Support
  • Service Level Agreements

Asset Simulation

Process Simulation

We specialise in simulation modelling, a way to create an exact mirror image of your business processes. This mirror image, or "digital twin", behaves the same way as the current system, but it all takes place within a virtual environment. Over the past decade, we've grown our business, with over 260 successful projects located in 20 different countries. Our experience means that we understand different working environments and operating procedures.

Planning & Scheduling

We provide advanced scheduling solutions using the Simio Risk-Based Planning and Scheduling (RPS) software. We assist customers in predicting risk, manage uncertainty and align operations. Unlike other scheduling solutions, Simio allows you to perform Risk Analysis in Real-Time!

Logistics & Warehouse Optimisation

We also provide expert warehouse solutions for optimisation using the Optislot software, developed by Optricity. We assist warehouses in improving ROI by optimising operations with advanced slotting technologies. Benefits include increased efficiencies and labour reduction.

Services include:

  • Training
  • Consulting
  • Software Sales
  • Software Support
  • Scheduling Solutions
  • Warehouse Solutions
