Advanced Phase-Based Scheduling

Scheduling and resource optimization tools to grow your bottom line.

The Problem

Current scheduling and management methods have known inefficiencies.   The tools available to account for well construction in forecast modeling consume too much time to be updated as frequently as needed, leaving little time to make strategic adjustments to development plans.

Recent advances in pad drilling and completion techniques have introduced the need to incorporate well construction schedule into production forecast modeling.

Operational schedules are often managed by individuals or departments with no integration between groups.  This structure defines poor communication and directly hinders operations that effect the bottom line. 

Variations in well timing, costs, and production have led to unpleasant variances from forecasts.

Effects of schedule changes on services and materials are not visible throughout the organization leading to supply bottlenecks or inefficient utilization.

key features

Mobile Application

Streamlined communication produces an accurate schedule available for viewing and editing anywhere, anytime.

User Defined Hierarchy

Schedule tasks as granular or high level as necessary.

Multiple Solution Paths

Build dependent paths for projects based on dates or timing of others.

Flexibility

The software does not define user process but can fit into users existing scheduling and forecasting processes. Major functions independent of the level of granularity of input data.

Data Integrity

Minimize opportunity for data corruption through use of user managed libraries.
Transparency of data inputs to minimize “black box” effect.

Efficiency

Project and case creation intuitive and minimally redundant through use of libraries, templates and duplicate case functions.
Schedule maintenance requires minimal intervention and time commitment
