Vesta to Present at the International SAP Conference for Oil & Gas, Netherlands
Vesta Partners will be presenting during the International SAP Conference for Oil & Gas taking place in the Hague, Netherlands April 12th – 14th. Vesta’s Rob Ericsson will be co-presenting with Mark Pyattfrom SAP. Their presentation titled, “What Would Archie Do? Marathon Oil’s Strategy for Mobility User Adoption” will cover the Marathon Oil Corporation implemented SAP-PM mid 2013 in the North American Production Organization (NAPO), with the view of implementing a tool that was easily adaptable, integrated and flexible. During the first year, we built the structure, trained field personnel and management, while also looking for additional functionality that would allow us to take SAP-PM to the techs in the field vs. bringing the techs from the field. One of our greatest challenges to full implementation was the distance operators, and maintenance and reliability techs, had to travel on a daily basis to complete their work, gather their paper work, and report issues/repairs; therefore, we focused on Work Manger, as a bridge between distance and reliability. Unfortunately, this the transition wasn’t easy, as most of our Maintenance Techs and Operators are not tech savvy, so we attacked the challenge in two ways:
What would Archie Do?: Archie is one of most seasoned field vets, whom all the field techs respect and follow; however, he is the least tech savvy. I focused on making the system easy enough for him to use, with the understanding “as Archie goes, so do the Maintenance Techs.” We constantly asked ourselves, “Can Archie do this”, if not, “let’s make it easier.” Once we were done, and Archie put his hands on it, understood it and started using it, the rest of the Maintenance Techs followed.
Grade ourselves: We developed more rigorous KPI’s, that put more real time information in the Reliability Engineers hands to make better reliability decisions, which were fed to Management as costs savings. Once Management started seeing better decisions being made from data vs. “gut feel”, they started pushing for more SAP and Work Manager functionality; therefore, we are now integrating SAP-LAM, GEO.e and GIS for better system utilization.

Rob Ericsson conducts a micro-forum on the topic of “Predictive EAM: What, Why, and How” – Berlin, Germany
During this years International SAP Conference for Oil and Gastaking place April 14–16 in Berlin, Germany, Vesta’s Rob Ericsson, the VP of Global Business Development, Mobility & Usability will be conducing a micro-forum on the topic of “Predictive EAM: What, Why, and How”.
“High-performance companies use predictive insight to identify untapped opportunities and expose hidden risks buried inside vast amounts of data across many aspects of finance, sales, and operations. Despite the sophisticated use of data in many other aspects, time-based and reactive maintenance regimes are commonly practiced. These regimes are not optimal because failures don’t happen at fixed intervals. Failure patterns are random over time but can be more accurately predicted if we add more dimensions to the picture (for example, vibration). Incorporating additional dimensions allows us to move toward condition-based maintenance (CBM), yielding improvements in safety, reliability, and cost. However, CBM programs aren’t easy. How do we identify what data is predictive of failure, collect it, turn it into action, and measure the results?
In this presentation, we will show a possible path forward. SAP Predictive Analytics software offers a rich and sophisticated modeling environment that can be used by nonstatisticians to identify relevant data for predicting failure. The results of this analysis can be fed into Vesta CBM to create a condition-based alert and action framework that is integrated with your maintenance processes in the SAP Enterprise Asset Management (SAP EAM) solution to drive the right maintenance at the right time. To close the loop and drive continuous improvement, SAP Asset Analytics software, powered by SAP HANA, has a complete package to define, collect, and measure asset performance information to evaluate key areas of EAM.”
