Operational Excellence Transformation is Yokogawa and KBC’s co-innovated portfolio of solutions and services.We provides comprehensive solutions for business automation in all four areas using consulting and digital technology.
Supply Chain Management deals with satisfying customer demands by selecting the most appropriate feedstocks the plant can process efficiently, and delivering the products to the customers with maximum efficiency. Today, most of the industry SCM solutions are executed manually and/or separately. In most cases, specialized planning and software packages that have been implemented previously are not connected to other systems, such as sales and distribution and real-time production systems. As a result, the benefits of SCM are not fully realized.
Yokogawa's strategy to improve supply chain management starts with defining the corporate long-term strategy and aligning it with operations, maintenance and all other functions involved in the entire value chain. It includes:
Yokogawa's approach to supply chain management involves digitalizing operations from supply to distribution. We then adopt the identified end-to-end optimization strategy to discover and manage all hidden costs (wastes) in the long chain. Our main objective is to find the Global Optimum to enable Just-in-Time in manufacturing and delivery for suppliers and customers, using minimum inventory and movement.
By applying digital technologies onto the end-to-end process of the supply chain (manufacturing raw materials to final products and managing purchase orders to good receipts), we may be able to improve the following:
By combining Yokogawa’s product portfolio and KBC’s consulting services, we provide our customers best practices and domain knowledge that empower them to improve their operations, as well as a digital platform that supports such activities and initiatives. Our Operational Risk Management scope does not only cover partial improvements in the organization, but also optimizations in plant operations to achieve continuously improving safety, reliability and operability.
·Asset Operations and Optimization
- Optimize the potential of physical assets, by pushing throughput and maximizing the production of the highest value products, whilst minimizing variable costs such as energy.
- Deliver small and large capex projects, on time and on budget, to deliver growth and meet environmental requirements.
·Operational Risk Management
- Reliably control safety, health and environmental risk at a personal and process level. This assures the robustness required to avoid catastrophic losses.
·Asset Management and Integrity
- Confidently ensure asset reliability and availability, whilst controlling maintenance costs. This assures the asset always meets expectations and is always available to capitalize on short term market opportunities.
A terminal or large depot is a storage area where Oil, Gas, or Chemical products are received through cross-country pipelines, tanker trucks and/or marine vessels, which are then stored in a tank farm. These products are re-distributed by truck, barge, rail car, or other means. Yokogawa has accumulated more than 2 decades of experience in terminal automation and offers comprehensive knowledge and expertise in improving your logistic operations.
"Refining" is a process to produce various oil products from crude oil, to blend them into the final products and to ship to the decided destinations. In the refinery, process units called "on-site facilities". The other facilities in the refinery is called "off-site facilities" including storage facilities, oil movement facilities and blending facilities, etc. Yokogawa proposes the solutions for automating and optimizing the off-site operations.
Shipping Customer Orders Within the Quality, Safely, Efficiently, and Accurately is a Perennial Problem in Terminal Operations
A typical medium size terminal has more than 1,500 transfer operations a day, and countless sub-operations (line clearances, heating, circulation, etc.)
Oil Movement Suite VP(OMSVP) & Terminal Logistics Suite VP (TLSVP)Helps You Overcome Your Challenges
Improve Safety: Interlock procedures to avoid mis-operations, and integrated smart-alarm management to help reduce operator load, improving overall safety
Improve Efficiency: Enabled by automated equipment scheduling, flexible route optimization, and blend recipe optimization. Together, these three ensure minimized turnaround time with optimized inventory usage
Improve Availability: Due to the inbuilt intelligence, OMSVP and TLSVP automatically re-route operations around failed equipment ensuring optimum terminal operations. OMSVP and TLSVP is able to provide this capability due to its integration with leading edge Plant Asset Management systems.
Improve Human Reliability: Simulated operations allow operators to learn in a safe environment - Advanced Operating Graphics supports the trained operators by making complex operations clear and simple, focusing on the most important tasks at hand - but when mistakes do happen, we catch them... the system will then track equipment services to avoid contamination
