Many organizations, especially drilling contractors, face the challenge of relocating equipment like Top drives and others from one location (Rig) to another. While SAP provides functionality to install/uninstall equipment at a Functional Location (FLOC) one part at a time, this can be cumbersome when multiple equipment parts need to be relocated. This can lead to lapses in recreating the hierarchy at the destination FLOC, causing inefficiencies and errors. Additionally, real-time visibility into the equipment’s status is often needed during relocation, which can take days or weeks.
To address these challenges, Unvired has built the Rig Asset Mover (RAM) app for SAP to simplify and optimize the equipment transfer process for drilling contractors. The Unvired RAM app for SAP is designed to streamline relocating equipment within or across plants. The app ensures Asset safety and prevents losses by providing real-time tracking and reporting capabilities while simplifying the transfer process. Here are the key features of the app:
- Capture Stakeholder Details: Capture details of all the stakeholders involved in the transfer. This could be phone numbers, email addresses, and digital signatures.
- Create Bill of Lading: Create and share a Bill Of Lading with stakeholders involved in the transfer through emails or MMS.
- Complete View of FLOC Hierarchy: Provides a complete FLOC hierarchy, helping users determine related equipment during dismantling and identify potential violations during installation.
- Document Equipment Transfer Reason: Document individual causes for transferring multiple pieces of equipment in one transfer and facilitate real-time tracking of equipment while in transit.
- Status Update: Set the status of the equipment based on transfer reasons at the time of uninstall/installation.
- Real-time Tracking: Provides near real-time tracking of equipment while in transit based on the document status.
- Collaboration: Communicate the transfer status to all persons involved, making the process transparent and efficient.
- Historical Transfer Reports: Provides a report on the historical transfers of equipment. This will allow Rig Managers to investigate potential mishandling of equipment that has moved across multiple locations.
- Non-SAP Equipment Transfer: Handle the transfer of equipment that is not managed within SAP, providing a comprehensive solution for all equipment transfer needs.
We have successfully deployed our app at a large Drilling Company (Oil & Gas) in US & Canada that runs SAP.
