iPlan3

iPlan 3 allows you to deliver your plant maintenance, in less time, with a reduced overhead. Using our proven maintenance management framework, developed in conjunction with BP, you will be able to effectively manage maintenance in the Oil, Gas, Power and Chemical industries – from your Routine Maintenance program to your Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages at your chemical process plants, oil refineries, offshore oil and gas platforms & power stations.

iPlan 3 will take you and your maintenance event through key stage gates, reducing the risk of poor;

  • scope management
  • resource management
  • cost control
  • equipment knowledge retention

iPlan 3 Features

MonteCarlo Risk Model
Why plan to fail? We regularly see clients trying to undertake scope not achievable in the time the plant is due to be switched off! iPlan 3 allows its users to evaluate if their chosen scope, prior to detailed planning (& expense of detailed planning) is achievable in the time the plant is going to be switched off, by using the Monte Carlo Risk model – enabling you to quickly select and deselect maintenance activities on the basis of cost, risk and impact, determining the optimum amount of scope that can be achieved in the time the plant is switched off!

Measure Productivity using Lean Six Sigma methodology
Understand in an instant the productivity of your event, taking in to account non-productive time activities when determining your maintenance crew’s productivity ratio, using the Lean Six Sigma methodology – learn more about this by watching our recent webinar here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czQXijI5Dkc !

Live Key Performance Indicator Dashboards
Our KPI dashboards have been developed in accordance to the KPI Institute’s Top 25 Maintenance KPI’s ( www.smartkpis.com ) – allowing plant owners and operators to quickly understand such factors as;

Maintenance Backlog, Preventative Maintenance, % PM Cost, % Scheduled Compliance, % Emergency Repairs, Time Between Failures, Downtime, % Maintenance Cost, % Corrective Repairs, % Scoped Work, % Unscoped Work

Work Pack Generation
Still paying an outside contractor thousands of pounds to generate your work packs? Use iPlan 3 and do them yourself to save time and substantial costs. If you are repeating the job in the next couple of years then reuse your historical work packs, complete with any activities, resources, estimates, risk assessments, drawings, photographs, permits and method statements which you used the first time round!

Estimation
iPlan 3 boasts a series of inbuilt Norms for Mechanical, Lagging, Valve Repair, E&I, Scaffold work types. Using norms to estimate enables semi-skilled / less experienced resource to be able to accurately estimate activities in these work types without having to have first-hand knowledge of durations.

Job Template Library
Utilise the iPlan 3 ‘Job Template Library’ to ensure uniformity when detailing maintenance jobs and rapidly estimate entire events by sorting work lists by equipment type and assigning a standard template for each equipment type. This has proven to reduce planning effort by upwards of 78% for clients who had to determine scope and deliver a shutdown only 10 weeks post their going live with iPlan 3!

Live Data back from the Plant
Using our suite of industrial mobile apps, you can get key data back from the plant live, increasing safety and productivity of workforces, at the same time capturing problems in their infancy before they escalate!

Free yourself to deal with emerging works
No longer do you have to chase progress status of bulk items, freeing yourself to plan and tackle emerging works.

Knowledge Retention
Understand your event progress, risks, spend and productivity with the iPlan 3 management dashboard. See instantly how well a maintenance job is being prepared and how well the ‘planning’ is progressing. Our flexible reporting will allow for headline information of a collection of events through to micro detail for individual jobs.

Visibility
Achieve industrial maintenance ‘excellence’ with our easy to use planning and scheduling tool. There’s no greater expense than a minor problem becoming a plant start-up delay, because of bad planning. iPlan 3 will prevent you from losing control of an event by enforcing regular stage gate check points.

Budget Accountability
No more querying the final invoice. See who authorised what and when – iPlan 3 allows the user to manage all the maintenance key stages, including; job sketching and detailing, estimation, materials ordering, estimate approval, variation control, progress recording, time recording, expenditure recording and quality assurance prior to commissioning plant.

iPlan 3 can also be integrated with our wider ISSOW (Integrated Safe System of Work) for gathering information from your asset actually onsite with the use of our intrinsically safe explosion proof devices

iPlan 3 – Benefits

  • De-risk delivery of your maintenance event by determining if scope is achievable with the time period allotted to an event using the Monte Carlo Risk model, saving undertaking detailed planning for activities that should not be included in scope.
  • Measure your plant maintenance against The KPI Institutes top 25 maintenance KPI’s
  • All maintenance key stages can be managed via an electronic approval process, including; job detailing, estimation management, materials ordering, variation control, progress recording, time recording through to quality assurance, which means that all event information exists in one system not spread across multiple.
  • 3 produces multi discipline work packs, which can include but are not limited to; job cards, permits, vessel entry and risk assessments, ensuring those performing the work are equipped with the necessary permissions to be performed safely.
  • 3 has the ability to retain all historical equipment records / work packs. This history can be reutilised time and time again, reducing the time involved in re-planning.
  • The Norms and schedules of rates within 3 enable rapid estimation and can be fine-tuned based upon evaluating the learning from previous event activity.
  • IAMTech’s mobile apps allows users to benefit from the functionality of 3 in the field, capturing defect data, quality assurance, progress, expenditure and emerging works.

To deliver maximum value, 3 enables both the Asset Owner and their Maintenance Partners to share the same plan, ensuring all those involved are contributing to and delivering the same scope of work via a standardised workflow, which has been developed in conjunction with BP.

  • With a proven in-built planning methodology and workflow, 3 makes it easy for professionals to perform to consistently high standards.
  • In using 3, Asset Owners and Contractors will save significant time and money due to the efficiencies created in using software which has been designed specifically for oil, gas, chemical and power maintenance.
  • Accompanying 3’s workflow is the ability to store, within a given event any ancillary materials, such as drawings, photographs and documentation.
  • With an unlimited number of seats to an 3 site license, users can access and update the software onsite or remotely with varying levels of access.
  • The Norms and schedules of rates within 3 enable rapid estimation and can be fine-tuned based upon evaluating the learning from previous event activity.
  • With an unlimited number of seats to an 3 license, users can access and update the software onsite or remotely with varying levels of access.

It is common in the Oil, Gas, Power & Chemical industries that multiple software and paper systems will be used to manage the complexities of time critical events.

Quite often a site will use maintenance management systems such as; SAP or Maximo as well as scheduling tools, such as Oracle Primavera & Microsoft Project and let’s not forget Microsoft Excel in a bid to effectively manage events.

3 acts as the glue between SAP, Maximo and Primavera, using the data in these systems in an interface that ensures it is used effectively, by as many people involved in the work as possible.

3 can complement these other systems if already in use OR if an organisation has not made the significant investment in these other ERP systems, 3 can be used as an alternative. In this scenario 3 will save the Industrial Asset Owners significant time and money when compared to purchasing SAP, Maximo or Primavera.
