An effective maintenance strategy is imperative for the continued operations and production at upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas facilities. When equipment unexpectedly breaks down due to either wear and tear, or worse, poor maintenance practices, revenues stop flowing, customer contracts are put at risk and profits margins are squeezed.
This whitepaper paper offers a valuable idea on improving oil and gas facility maintenance. The first step is perhaps the most basic – trashing paper-based maintenance data collection and reporting. Instead of using paper forms, checklists that have to be manually uploaded to SAP or IBM Maximo, convert to a totally digital process utilizing the convenience and agility of mobile devices.
Use mobile devices to assign, complete and report:
- Operator rounds
- Planning and scheduling
- Work order management
- Spare parts inventory management
