It’s common to find a lack of communication and insight among operational groups when faced with a given situation, as everyone is making decisions on their own without considering the collateral impacts. Obviously, you want to break down the silos and unify your processes.
The first step will be to automate processes to remove the need for local action. Then, by consolidating your various control systems into a central decision-making point, you can make joint upstream and downstream decisions, ensuring better operational continuity.
Valuing the role of your operators
You want to mitigate your risk of human error, downtime, inconsistencies and repetitive operator tasks. By implementing decision support systems, you’ll help your operators make better use of their time and optimize their focus. The same goes for onboarding your new employees, who’ll be more efficient quickly thanks to a simple, agile and, above all, safe transfer of skills.
