  2. 2. © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL2 Achieving Superior Operation Reliability The E&P industry faces tough business & operational challenges. Though the organizations have some form of reliability improvement processes, they suffer from issues related to information management, collaboration & workflow inefficiency. The objective of this paper is to present a case to include reliability improvement process in organizations transformation agenda and increase its efficiency and effectiveness.

  4. 4. © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL4 RIP requires a multi-disciplinary team. Typically organizations lack the necessary infrastructure to effectively collaborate with experts • The staff is not able to effectively communicate, freely share critical information with SMEs or external consultants and monitor the execution of recommended action from a central location. • This leads to poor diagnosis and suboptimal resolution of the reliability issue. The information, documents and records created during the lifecycle of equipments are collected, stored, processed and archived in various places and not integrated. • Spend a lot of time in searching for the required information and converting it into an analysis-ready format. • Potential conflicts between the information received from different sources creating doubts about their trustworthiness. • Results in inaccurate or incomplete analysis or delay in completing activities.

  5. 5. © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL5 Issues with Reliability Improvement Process - 2 Most of the problem solving related to equipment operations often happen in an unstructured manner. The staff is not able to develop in-depth understanding of equipment history and past issues which undermines quality and depth of their analysis leading to suboptimal resolution. Typically organizations lack a well defined and standardized workflow management mechanism The staff faces hand-over delays, lack of visibility into tasks and silos of information creation. An incomplete view prevents the staff from understanding the equipment history that may potentially undermine their analysis leading to suboptimal resolution. ISSUES IMPACT
  6. 6. © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL6 Achieving Successful RIP transformation Adopt a program centric approach to ensure alignment with business goals Formulate an implementation staircase to address program complexity Identify synergies with existing operational improvement programs to optimize program execution Identify quick-win opportunities to accelerate the program timeline Identify key IT enablers and appropriately address them in Enterprise IT Architecture Secure right skill set for program to build credibility

  8. 8. © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL8 Conclusion  A good starting point for organizations should be to conduct a feasibility study to understand the maturity of their existing RIP and potential gains from achieving target transformed state of RIP  A feasibility study should review previous reliability improvement initiatives and their outcomes  Once a business case is established, the senior leadership should commit necessary organization resources and provide their full support for the transformation program  With that organizations would do well to observe some of the key principles listed by us to avoid pitfalls and maximize value from the transformation program.
