Our client wanted to improve accuracy and efficiency in the scheduling and execution of critical plant maintenance activities on one of their offshore platforms. They also wanted to be able to get clarity and visibility of core maintenance KPIs and performance against their plan.
We worked iteratively with the offshore and onshore teams to design and build an intuitive application using Microsoft Power Apps and Power BI. We designed and built data pipelines using Azure Data Factory to automate the flow of planned maintenance data into the application. The approach taken ensured no surprises, meant that users got what they needed, and that deployment was straightforward.
The time taken offshore, daily and weekly, to capture and review maintenance operations progress has been reduced and the visibility of impacts on performance (both positive and negative) has been greatly improved. The client now has the ability to view performance over time and to provide vital new insights in support of future core maintenance planning. It is anticipated the application will now be rolled out to other offshore platforms.
