Industry experts to tackle best practice for maintenance management

Operators and oilfield service companies are being invited to hear from two software experts at a forum which will promote best practice for maintenance management in the upstream oil and gas sector, in Aberdeen.

Hosted by specialist software consultancy Absoft, one of the leading independent SAP providers in the UK, the forum, which is free to attend is aimed at maintenance, asset integrity, and supply chain decision makers and will take place on Thursday, May 17.

Delegates will hear from John Meiklejohn, senior SAP consultant at Absoft, who will discuss and demonstrate practical examples of using the standard reporting which is available within SAP to analyse and improve key areas of the business.

Bjorn Harzer, solution architect at Absoft will then examine the use of handheld devices within SAP software for maintenance and supply chain processes. He will draw on Absoft’s experience of delivering such projects, discussing lessons learnt and suggest best practice going forward.

Tim Galloway, Absoft oil and gas sales manager who is facilitating the forum says: “The event is part of a series of open forums which we have created to bring together key decision makers from companies across the sector to discuss common issues and receive advice from SAP experts.

“During this forum, we will demonstrate how the integration between handheld devices and office-bound maintenance management systems can ensure the provision of accurate and up to date information, helping offshore personnel perform field tasks such as inventorying and repair more efficiently.”
