The Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) Supply Chain has a life of its own. It is comprised of many moving parts that may or may not during the process, impact the profitability and schedule of a project. From the time long lead equipment is identified, buy downs negotiated and purchase orders placed, to the point of installation by construction or subcontractor personnel, opportunities exist to improve work processes that can result in significant cost savings and schedule improvements. These opportunities are not always readily visible and often wind up as lost opportunities.
One of the most available opportunities in the Supply Chain for cost and schedule improvement is in the field material management and control arena. Utilization of a tool such as Jovix™
can lead to significant craft labor hours savings, cost reductions in storage and handling and significant opportunities for enhanced work planning techniques and schedule improvements.
