CEMEX Use Case​

CEMEX adopts Alteia cloud-based visual intelligence platform to enable the digital transformation of aggregate operations​

Cemex, Global leader in the construction industry products adopted Alteia Visual intelligence to increase operational efficiency and optimize safety with 3D modeling and artificial intelligence.

CEMEX needs the cloud platform for analyzing and leveraging data collected by drones, satellites and other aerial methods, for their 60 aggregate production sites in France. Thanks to the platform, CEMEX gets access to highly accurate, 3D topographic surveys along with advanced analytics to calculate volumes of materials, resulting in a better forecast of production, improved operations and reduced operational costs.

"Production monitoring, inventory management, and the safety of our teams are the three key performance indicators of our production sites. Alteia’s comprehensive platform for visual data collection and management will help us accelerate the digitalization of our activities, significantly improving all aspects of our operational efficiency. "

Benjamin Lecendrier, director of Production and Joint-Ventures at CEMEX France Nord

Alteia provides CEMEX with a completely integrated and easy-to-use workflow to manage, analyze and share data, streamlining the process for unlocking the true potential of aerial surveying. Intuitive features on the platform allow users to visualize a site in 2D or 3D. The platform has the capacity to provide orthophotography, slope maps, digital surface models and 3D models.

Making measurements is quick and simple, with integrated tools for calculating length, determining an area size, and calculating stockpile volumes. More frequent updates of topographic data allows the company to better forecast its production and increase revenue, with more insight into planning of extraction and extension projects, measuring of stockpiles, managing entire site inventories, and optimizing  haul roads. This contributes to standardize best practices and processes enterprise-wide.

Alteia’s cloud-based approach simplifies data storage and access, making it ideal for the CEMEX team to collaborate and archive data. The platform is inherently scalable, supporting the use of multiple UAVs and data collection techniques. An unlimited number of projects can be stored and shared, providing access to critical data by anyone who needs it across the enterprise: surveyors, production department or financial services.

“Being able to share data seamlessly between the different departments of the company and our production sites, and with subcontractors, has been a determining factor in choosing Alteia’s solution. Our teams can collaborate from a single interface online, anywhere, anytime. The Alteia platform is scaled to meet our evolving needs and can be easily deployed nationwide,” noted Lecendrier.
