Putting the work in order using work packs and templates

Our client - a major oil and gas company working in exploration, development, production and supply - regularly faces the challenge of managing work on shutdowns, turnarounds and outages.

STO projects need consistent, regular data input. Accurate estimates during planning, - and daily actuals and forecasts during execution - are vital. Our client needed a software solution that would save time and deliver consistency. And any new system had to integrate seamlessly with the software suites already had in place.

A tall order

The demanding list of requirements included automation of tasks like work pack creation, easy on-site use via mobile devices, and integration with SAP and Primavera. The system would be used to control man hours and costs, managing works scope from planning through to completion. As a web-based package, it would have to generate and use consistent templates and norms to build estimates, and provide integrated reports and interactive dashboards for ease of management.

Monitor’s mpower system came up with the goods. Identified by our client as the right solution, it was quickly adopted and deployed by the company’s global shutdown team.

How mpower performs in the real world…

For our client, mpower ticked all the boxes. And real-world benefits were even more impressive than expected.

Existing norms and work order templates were input to allow consistent estimating. Work packs could be performed within a few clicks of a mouse rather than taking days of laborious effort. Interactive dashboards meant the whole team was able to interrogate data, anywhere in the world, within seconds of input. And with dashboards defined to auto-refresh, data stayed visible on communal monitors to show instant, real-time visual progress.

Putting mpower to work

Implementation was straightforward, rolling out with i-connect for seamless integration with existing SAP and Primavera 15.1 suites. Hosted in-house, it’s now managed entirely by our client’s IT team.

mpower is easy to install and intuitive to use, saving time and money from day one. And it’s designed to help you leverage value from existing investment, integrating with Oracle E-Business, IBM Maximo and Microsoft Project, as well as Primavera and SAP.
