Stephen-Jeffs Watts - Senior Consultant - IFS

Supply chain as an integral part of the asset lifecycle

Talk Description.
Efficient supply chains start in the engineering lifecycle of the asset.

Standards-based asset design provides a solid foundation for spares commonality, forecasting, planning and replenishment methodologies.

You can do a criticality assessment and FMEA (Failure mode and effects) analysis from faults, fed back into the asset lifecycle, to improve reliability, minimising spares handling and predicting usage.

David Stroud - CEO - Sparesfinder

What becomes possible when you move you spares data from spreadsheets to the cloud

Talk Description.
Many oil and gas capital projects are still gathering SPIR data on complex spreadsheets and using these to manage the setting of spares levels for new equipment.

By moving the management of your spares data onto the cloud (with a system such as sparesFinder’s “Spearhead”), asset owners, EPCs and suppliers can collaborate much more easily, improving efficiency and reducing risk. You can integrate the system with other business applications (such as ERP) and the benefits are applicable both to greenfield and brownfield projects.
http://www.sparesfinder.com/Products/Spearhead/Overview.aspx

David co-founded sparesFinder Ltd in 1998. He is a Cambridge-trained engineer, sponsored by the Royal Navy. In active service he managed 40 aircraft-carrier-based engineering staff and subsequently became responsible for formulating Fleet Air Arm Logistics policy in the Ministry of Defence. After leaving the RN he worked at Citibank for 6 years, firstly as an IT project manager and then as a derivatives trader specializing in European Government Bond Options based in Frankfurt and London.

Since founding sparesFinder, David has led the development of a series of innovative software tools to provide rapid visibility and analytics of engineering inventory across multiple systems, and to create a controlled environment in which to clean and manage master data.

Used daily in over 90 countries by some of the world's best known companies, these fully hosted, easy to use tools are immediately available to sparesFinder’s customers via a web browser, saving them time, money and hassle.

Sparesfinder
sparesFinder’s customers understand that high quality materials data is a valuable asset but know that it’s not easy to either achieve this or sustain it. Moreover, it is important that they generate a good return from the investment of time and resources they make.

We work with our customers to deliver that high return. Not only do we have one of the best materials data cleaning and governance applications in the market, but we can also deliver a full service package to support your project. We are a “Software as a Service” company (i.e. we host and manage all of the software and databases, and you just use a web browser), so the IT hassle is low, the implementation rapid and the costs very competitive.

Clean data is the foundation of our customers’ success, but our integrated analytical and search applications will quickly give them the information and leverage needed to drive the benefits to the bottom line, reducing operating costs and working capital requirements quickly, and keeping them low.
