DRIVING VALUE FOR YOUR INDUSTRY

OIL & GAS
PUSHING PERFORMANCE BOUNDARIES, DELIVERING OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

The Oil & Gas industry is limited in its ability to grow market share and revenue and ensure profitability. Variable product volume due to temperature changes and deviations in measuring the volume of products at different stages of the supply chain cause losses in the chain.

The low margins in the downstream sector require companies to be very accurate in the ongoing management of the company, to find new sources of income and to assimilate best practices and innovative, breakthrough technologies which improve their efficiency

KEY CHALLENGES

Oil & Gas companies are being asked to answer some difficult questions, such as: How much of the supply to close in annual deals versus SPOT transactions. Where to purchase supplies

from the standpoint of overall optimization. What distribution agreement to make with third parties. They have to adopt best practices when moving to centralized planning (or a push model). They need to know how to manage full control over the inventory throughout the chain and the metrics to create continuous improvement

Decisions regarding inventory and supply agreements are complex and have a material effect on a company’s working capital and profitability.

Oil and gas companies need to make fast, well-informed supply decisions. Planning can certainly help businesses that are vulnerable to unpredictable fluctuations in demand for oil and gas.

  • Reduce supply shortages
  • Increase EBITDA by up to 15%

The fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector faces increasing operational challenges while the online market has changed the rules of the game.

Companies must contend with increasing competition, volatile demand, low fill-rate versus surpluses, dynamic pricing, channel complexity, and product expiries – all this while offering faster turnarounds.

KEY CHALLENGES

There are many complex questions which need effective answers. For example; How to distribute and store products more effectively. Deciding which activities need to be performed by a third party and which information systems to use. How to provide goods on time and how to build the online distribution pipeline correctly. How to increase plant utilization in order to improve fill rate.

Gain a competitive advantage.

BOOST FILL RATE PERFORMANCE

Intense global competition and increasing product complexity demand a robust supply chain. Complex global supply chains require increased cooperation between different suppliers and partners.

Industrial companies face issues such as low productivity and increasing maintenance costs. Automation, digitization and make-to-order configurations may be beneficial to operations, but they add extra complexity to any already complex supply chain. This puts additional pressure for supply chain planning to become more streamlined, agile and responsive.

KEY CHALLENGES
