The OS Difference

OS Strategy and Management Systems: Roadmaps to Success

The best measure of an effective strategy is a profitable plant that operates at the least risk. Our OESuite® Enterprise Software gives you a single source of truth – and one that delivers actionable insights in the moment so that you and your employees can make risk-informed decisions leading to Operational Excellence.

What sets OS apart is the core interoperability inherent to our software – and the number of subject matter experts and experienced operations personnel involved in its development and deployment. We understand the demands and challenges of the process, oil and gas, chemical, power generation, water/wastewater, mining, and manufacturing industries. We focus on helping clients understand the path to value and delivering solutions that simply work.

Why strategy is at the core of everything we do

Interoperability is based upon the idea that there are strategic systems that need to talk to each other. Your organizational strategy for success determines what systems should be interoperable, what data is important, and how you want to use the insights and information to accomplish your goals. At OS, we help clients map out the strategy and then implement the right solution.

We can help you assess needs, identify gaps, benchmark performance, develop work processes and management systems, develop an implementation strategy, and quantify the return on investment. We often begin the implementation with a pilot to validate assumptions and generate lessons learned before moving to a full-scale rollout.

If you know you need a solution for a specific aspect of your operation, such as Process Safety Information or Management of Change, it’s a comfort to know you can start anywhere with OESuite® and build your perfect Operational Excellence solution on your own schedule.

When it comes to your business, not all ideas are worth pursuing. That is why OS has created our own advisory group with deep domain expertise to guide your organizations. Our advisors were pulled from the top quartile of process industry organizations; the average OS Advisor has 30 years of industry experience. OS has solved complex issues for more than 100 clients to date.

Our advisory process starts with value engineering, to identify the business merits of a proposed solution. While every proposed solution may be viable, they may not all have a tangible Return-On-Investment (ROI). Then, we use our Value Calculation Solution to identify key value drivers along with associated benefits.

Our advisors take what they’ve learned about your organization, including the business merits of the solution and key value drivers, and develop a comprehensive framework for making a strategic decision.

Four components of a risk registry: Asset Systems, Compliance Systems, Operations Systems, and Workforce Systems

Companies need to build from the ground up on a common architecture. Our Enterprise Stategy works in the same way, beginning with compliance. Compliance is the basic foundation and the privilege to operate isn’t negotiable for any industry. After the foundation for your Enterprise Strategy is established, the focus is on assets and operations next, using our Operational Excellence platform.

Intelligent Operations Phases of Maturity

Finally, our advisors combine this information to create a strategic roadmap to drive Performance Management. The result is game-changing, resulting in top quartile financial performance at the lowest Operational Risk. In the case of BP, OS helped BP find more than $2B annually in value leakage.
