BP Chemicals (now INEOS Chemicals)

BP Chemicals (now INEOS Chemicals) have used iPlan to manage their shutdowns and routine maintenance since 2004.

The Brief

To provide BP with an all inclusive management system which not only raises the standard of planning, but can be accessed by BP and their Contractors in unison, thus enhancing collaboration between both parties.

Managing maintenance is all about managing information well. If you can’t access all of your data or you can’t manipulate it effectively then you are likely to miss things, which in turn become significant risks. As a consequence BP decided to move to iPlan, selected for its high level of control coupled with transparency for both BP and its maintenance partners.

The Solution

Before BP started using iPlan, we had invested significant time and resources in trying to make other 3rd party systems and providers work to BP Chemicals shutdown and maintenance methodology. We were frustrated by the standard of shutdown management systems we had available to support this workflow.

iPlan is an all-inclusive management system which not only raises the standard of planning, but can be accessed by BP and their Shutdown & Maintenance Contractors at the same time, thus enhancing collaboration between all parties.

Underpinned by information check points iPlan prevents losing control of maintenance events, reducing the chance of minor problems becoming costly mistakes.

We hoped to tailor SAP to our vision for a best in class Shutdown & Maintenance workflow, but unfortunately we couldn’t deviate from BP Chemicals SAP global operating model
