  • Kuwait Oil Company

    In February 2008, KOC awarded the EBEAMS Contract to Arabian Construction Company (ACC) for the Implementation, Training and Support of the e-Business and Enterprise Asset Management System (eBEAMS).
    The Contract Scope of Work is primarily for the replacement of the Indus Passport MMMS System with IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management as well as the implementation of e-Business functionality. The Contract was executed over 6 stages from Initiation & Planning, Design & Development, Configuration, Testing, Training & Go-Live, and Warranty Support.
    The Contract includes 2 years of on-site warranty support and was later extended to cover resources outsourcing for onsite maintenance services.
     
    The Implementation phase of the project was completed End of 2010. The project eBEAMS went Live on 9 January 2011 and the maintenance support phase is now live since August 2011. The contract period ends in 2015 and includes on-going warranty and maintenance support services.
     
    In addition to the standard IBM Maximo footprint, i.e. Maintenance Management, Material Management, Contracts Management, and relevant data repositories for Assets Hierarchy, Labor records, Job Plans, Inventory Items,  contracts line items, etc. and the specific industry components and other add-ons such IT Service Management, Transportation Management, Work Scheduling, Calibration, GIS, Linear, and Oil and Gas; the Contract includes the development of 200+ operational BIRT reports and Key Performance Indicators along with the development of several interfaces and integrations.
     
    The project also includes Data Cleansing, Data Collection and Data Management exercise catering for Inventory Items Cataloguing, Purchasing Contracts Data Cleansing, Assets Data Cleansing, etc.  This exercise covered several components of the Data Conversion & Migration including: Data Source Identification, Data Gathering, Data Cleansing, Data Mapping, Data Conversion and Loading.
     
    The training phase of the project took place over a period of about 5 months around the Go-Live date with 1000+ man-days and 100’s of KOC end-users. The training is an on-going activity and this is currently being handled by the ACC support resources.
    During the project scoping, we have identified 131 legacy systems and those were mapped and analyzed against IBM Maximo.  As a result of this analysis, 57 systems were replaced by Maximo and 23 were selected for integration.  A further 51 systems did not impact the Maximo project and were left as specialist standalone systems.
     
    One of the benefits of legacy systems replacement/consolidation is streamlining of the relevant processes and elimination of information silos.  One particular example of information consolidation is mainly evident in that Maximo has become the corporate Personnel Database.

    ACC has implemented the Maximo package from MRO Software, which was selected as the best of breed solution to address the requirements of KNPC.
     
    The contract was further extended to cover the supply, installation and maintenance of the IT side of the project (development servers, PCs, printers, networking components, facsimile machines, photocopiers, etc.)
     
    KNPC management required a review of the system performance and system value to the organization from a user perspective. KNPC initiated an internal post implementation review.
