Dynamic planning and route are an essential part of our recommended strategy to revolutionize the downstream supply chain of the oil and gas industry. As A general manager of Lomosoft, Spanuth has made a significant contribution to this revolution through the company`s planning software solutions. Wipro asked Mr. Spanuth to share some of the knowledge he and his company have gained that illustrate the business benefits of dynamic planning. Here are some excerpts from this interview. Orders are automatically assigned to specific vehicles and optimized routes are generated for each layer. The system takes into account several business objectives and restrictions, such as shift work hours. B, customer hours, service level agreements and the volume of HGV compartments. The planning phase ends with rolling plans and loading data sent to drivers` mobile devices. This website describes how downstream users are affected by REACH and CLP.

Bain s José de Sé and Dave Rennard discuss with Shaun Boardman of Advisian the importance of resilience in the downstream oil and gas industry. Today, it is not uncommon for a downstream company to include a large full-time equivalent organization to manage planning processes and teleportation relationships. This is a product-benefit challenge: this organization can be an important cost point, with high fixed costs, which must be restored through efficient pricing to make a profit. Managing non-VMI customers is one of the most challenging challenges for downstream operations. As orders are not clearly visible in advance, the risk of insufficient supply to meet customer demand is very high. The problem becomes even more difficult when the company processes a combination of VMI and non-VMI customers. Transporting products downstream is a complex and expensive process. While oil companies and their tugs are looking for the most effective transportation strategies between supply depots and customer sites, challenges such as imprecise planning and forecasting, unforeseen customer demand, complex delay problems, low fleet utilization and accounting inaccuracies prevent this goal from being fully achieved. One of the key challenges is to integrate technology-based strategies to streamline operations and reduce costs.
