Petrotechnics launches 2018 operational excellence survey

Petrotechnics, the developer of the world’s first software platform for operational excellence (OE), has launched its annual OE Index (OEI), which aims to assess the pace and impact of digital transformation in hazardous industries.

For the last two years, Petrotechnics has surveyed and published reports on the state and culture of OE. Last year’s survey examined how digitalisation was assisting companies in achieving OE. Over 73% of companies surveyed noted that digitalisation was helping accelerate their ability to deliver sustainable OE. This year the survey will uncover whether this acceleration is having practical benefits on the ground and where organisations are focusing their digital efforts and investments.

Scott Lehmann, VP of product management and marketing at Petrotechnics, says: “As demonstrated in last year’s survey, the hazardous industries are feeling the impact of digital disruption. For those who get digital transformation right, the payoff will be big in terms of improved asset management, increases in operational efficiency, and reduced operational risk. But change is hard, and there will always be technology, people, culture, and leadership challenges to overcome.

Stay tuned as this year’s survey will provide an interesting look into how much has changed, where organisations are focusing their attention and significantly where they are seeing digital ROI.”  

The results of the survey will be used to develop an industry report and whitepaper.
