A major Oil & Gas company faced challenges completing effective stock checks of spare parts due to the complexity and time consuming processes involved. After integrating WorkfloPlus with their Asset Management System they could complete an entire stock check for up to 50,000 items in less than a day with a massive improvement in accuracy.
By using WorkfloPlus it's possible to identity exactly what’s on-board, giving Captains and Engineers complete confidence as well as a reduction in risk. It's estimated that over $8.5 over 5 years has in saved in better stock management, procurement, vessel operation .
- Estimated savings of $8.5 million over 5 years in better stock management, procurement, vessel operation and risk assessment
- Additional benefits missing from current asset management solution
- Accurately identify 100% of all spare parts
- Qualified data updated in real-time
A six month trial deployment of WorkfloPlus was carried out over 40 vessels in a fleet as part of the auditing processes. It was used to check the stock of spare parts and maintenance equipment that are critical to ensure the ship can continue to operate safely.
A bespoke version of WorkfloPlus was created, working on ECOM smartphones and a Motorola scanner. This was linked to the on-ship server using Asset Management Software. As soon as staff completed the relevant on-board check AMOS was immediately updated with the results, providing a 100% accurate position of all on-board stock items.
Intoware also created its own customised cloud-based data analytics dashboard, which allowed relevant staff on-board and also back onshore to review the captured data in real time.
The success of WorkfloPlus was evident when crew were able to scan 1500 parts in 350 locations in less than two days - with a massive improvement in accuracy and a significant cost saving to the business.
The new tools and software installed provided the capability to accurately record and audit the spares at greatly reduced time - something that would have been very difficult to achieve without WorkfloPlus.
