A Fortune 500 integrated oil & gas company was having failures of their equipment across their upstream and midstream organization, costing the business an estimated $30-50 billion per year.
Using an existing production efficiency improvement model, OS improved the process to identify how the client could get out of the mode of logging failures after the fact to proactively anticipating and eliminating equipment defects leading to significant production losses. The failures were caused by both human and equipment error.
OS was able to move the client from "after the fact" root cause analysis to "proactive" equipment health monitoring and improved reliability of the equipment. As a result the company is implementing the OS work process across its fleet of assets.
The company is now able to predict and avoid failures of its fleet of assets, saving millions of dollars each year.
A refining company struggled with mobilizing its workforce. Its existing processes were mostly paper-based and highly inefficient.
OS developed a set of digital forms and an operator rounds solution to improve operations.
The client was able to reduce instances of non-compliance and to reduct the overall cost of gathering data in the field. The result was more than a 40% reduction in annual costs for visual inspections. In addition, OS was able to deliver an operator rounds solution to address the company's operational excellence focus on operator-driven reliablity.
A Fortune 20 oil & gas company has a highly disconnected environment. Clipboards were commonly used as a means for gathering information on the field.
OS developed a mobile inspection solution to address equipment inspections including an online and offline capability. OS hosted more than 600 gigabytes of data in the cloud.
The client was able to move away from paper-based inspections and significantly reduce the time required for inspections.
A fortune 10 oil & gas company had to address audit deficiencies and requirements to develop a competency program driven by SEMS and OSHA 1910.119.
OS conducted a gap assessment and created a new training organization for its North American operations. This included staffing of the training department, development of a communication strategy, creation of management systems, coaching of the client, creation of job role maps and competency assessments, and implementation of a comprehensive IT solution for workforce management.
The client was able to move get into compliance, create a new training organization, and develop a comprehensive competency program.
A refining client had numerous silos including tools for process safety along with spreadsheets. Due to the silos, the client was unable to manage its process safety program efficiently and was also unable to roll-up information for reporting purposes.
Deployment of OSSuite™, including its core process safety modules, permitted integration of many of the core program elements and subsequent roll-up of leading and lagging indicators leading to more efficient compliance.
The refiner successfully achieved improved process safety performance. The integrated OSSuite™ offering paved the way for the additional modules, to further improve OSSuite™ compliance assurance.
A Fortune 500 upstream and midstream oil & gas company sought the assistance of OS in defining and implementing an asset integrity management system. The client was experiencing frequent safety incidents and significant failures on equipment assets.
OS created a situational risk assessment tool as part the overall solution. This solution was used to relate maintenance priorities to the production priority. In addition, OS deployed digital forms technology to enable the client to roll out a Fitness-for-Service program. Finally, OS defined and is in the process of implementing an asset integrity management system (AIM) solution across 37 operations.
The client has dramatically improved its asset integrity performance. Incidents have been dramatically reduced and the client is poised to move from run-to-failure mentality to preventative maintenance.
A chemical client sought assistance with facilitating process hazard analysis (PHA) studies. In addition, the client was plagued with paper-based systems and spreadsheets for compliance.
OS successfully facilitated numerous PHA studies for the client. In addition, OS implemented a PHA, Corrective Action and Management of Change solution in the cloud.
The client has dramatically improved its process safety performance. The overall quality of PHA studies has been dramatically improved and the client is now able to track its recommendations to closure while significantly reducing past due items.
A leading chemical company struggled with attrition due to the mass exodus of the baby boomers. The client was experiencing significant challenges with resourcing all of its programs due to lack of optics into how to properly enable succession planning.
OS developed a competency model that defined all of its personnel at several plants. The client was able to identify anchor hires and to properly identify resource needs where this didn't exist before.
The client is able to properly resource capital projects and continuous operations at several of its key plants. OS will be rolling out this solution at several dozen additional facilities across the globe to further improve the client's organizational sustainability.
A chemical client struggled to develop a strategy for its EH&S management information system (EMIS) needs. OS was hired to develop a comprehensive strategy across its enterprise.
OS developed a set of detailed requirements, a set of "to be" workflows to address core workstreams, facilitated a system selection and created an implementation plan for the selected solution.
The client was able to significantly reduce its costs to support its existing solutions. In addition, OS laid a solid foundation for the client to move forward with consolidation of its EH&S IT portfolio.
A utility client sought assistance with improving its Management of Change (MOC) process and management systems.
OS successfully facilitated workshops to improve the existing management systems for a North American electric utility.
The client was able to reduce incidents substantially and to manage costly engineering changes.
A utility company struggled with mobilizing its workforce. Its existing processes were mostly paper-based and highly inefficient.
OS developed a set of digital forms including operator rounds to improve operations.
The client was able to reduce instances of non-compliance and to reduce the overall cost of gathering data in the field. The result was more than a 40% reduction in annual costs for data gathering while enabling proactive work management processes.
A utility used a leading Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), but lacked fundamental information such as an a consistent asset topology, job plans and bills of material.
OS evaluated the existing CMMS configuration and suggested a best practice for master data management including an asset hierarchy. Later, OS was able to template job plans for their equipment and to suggest integrity operating windows.
The client was able to tackle the challenge of managing equipment in its CMMS along with fundamental information to determine preventative maintenance on its equipment, while improving operational efficiencies.
