‘CAMS,’ Capital Asset Maintenance Streamliner announced

ProgramFramework rolls out oil and gas project management toolkit.

Enterprise Project Management specialist Program Framework has launched ‘CAMS’, its capital asset maintenance ‘streamliner,’ a scheduling engine for maintenance in oil and gas production operations. The UK based company, a Microsoft certified partner is a specialist developer of solutions built atop Microsoft’s Enterprise Project Management toolset.

Program Framework MD Paul Major said, ‘Optimizing maintenance is critical for 24/7 operations in oil and gas, where the cost of lost time through shutdowns is high. CAMS goes beyond maintenance scheduling, showing what manpower and equipment is required, flagging critical safety issues and indicating how a specific task fits with other planned and reactive maintenance activities. For example, scheduled maintenance may mean shutting down other systems, providing an opportunity to perform maintenance on them at the same time.’

CAMS was developed from earlier project management work performed by Program Framework for Marathon Oil. Last year (OITJ April 2007), Marathon commissioned Program Framework to design an enterprise project management (EPM) solution for its North Sea Brae asset. Brae comprises three production platforms and multiple onshore engineering teams. More from lawrie.siteman@programframework.com.
