Press Release: Copia Unveils Industrial DevOps Platform to Boost Manufacturing Efficiency, Minimize Disruption

Saves millions of dollars in production downtime for industrial companies by enabling them to gain continuous operations and prevent outages 

NEW YORK, June 13, 2024 - Copia Automation, empowering companies to gain continuous quality control and streamlined production, launched today the Copia Industrial DevOps Platform, a cloud-based Git solution that serves as an operational technology (OT) control center. The platform provides a clear view of all code within industrial operations to eliminate unexpected disruptions resulting from coding errors. 

Industrial operations gain a strategic advantage with continuous quality control, production optimization, and preemptive crisis management to minimize product recalls, downtime, and safety or cyber threats, saving millions of dollars in lost productivity. 

Amazon recently deployed Copia’s technology at its warehouses and expects an 80% reduction in unexpected downtime due to unapproved control changes — a significant increase in the scalability of code improvements — and a 25% improvement in high-severity issue resolution time. Copia has raised $30 million from investors since 2020, and has been adopted by more than 1,500 developers at 100 companies globally. 

"We're going beyond increasing efficiency to fundamentally transform how the manufacturing industry operates where the application of code is a strategic asset to enhance efficiency and foster innovation,” said Copia CEO and Co-founder Adam Gluck. “By deploying the principles of Industrial DevOps, manufacturers can bring established IT practices into the world of operational technology to ensure their operations run smoothly with minimum downtime.”

Industrial Automation Challenges

  • Operational outages are common occurrences, causing severe disruptions that can halt plant operations and jeopardize the integrity of entire industrial systems. When a Toyota computer system in Japan malfunctioned in August 2023, production was halted in 14 factories for a full day, costing the company an estimated $356 million in revenue.

  • Quick-fix engineering updates and localized modifications to automated manufacturing processes are commonly used as short-term solutions but there is no way to detect and validate these ad hoc code changes.

  • With no way to trace or account for these changes, conflicting operations can occur leading to expensive production failures that require huge amounts of time to investigate and resolve.

Copia brings many of the concepts, tools, and best practices that helped DevOps revolutionize the IT industry (e.g. visibility, automation, validation, and quality control) to the operational technology industry. Mitigation with Industrial DevOps, modern practices and toolsets provide unprecedented visibility and control over industrial code in development, production, and management throughout project lifetimes. As coding at scale increases at industry sites, Copia offers enhanced code visibility to:

  • Enable greater collaboration among coders
  • Provide a one-stop platform for all files and upgrades
  • Boost efficiency by standardizing code and upgrades across multiple sites
  • Supply actionable visibility and control, and immediate disaster recovery
