Collaborate to Reduce Costs and Increase Reliability with the SAP Asset Intelligence Network

Presented by Albere Cohen and Dean Fitt The transition to the digital economy and the increasing adoption of new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based networks provide an opportunity to automate data exchange and enable a simplified collaboration model among manufacturers, dealers, service providers (including EPC’s) and operators of assets. SAP leads the next wave of asset management innovation by bringing the asset ecosystem partners onto a single cloud-based collaborative network platform called SAP Asset Intelligence Network. SAP Asset Intelligence Network is a central hub that serves first as a global register of the equipment in an extended ecosystem. Each asset element has a unique ID that authorises the publication of and subscription to content on the network. Now visualise a host of applications running on this collaborative platform to simplify maintenance and enhance cooperation for complex tasks. Albere will share United Energy’s involvement in the SAP Asset Intelligence Network, why they signed up to the beta program and what they intend to get out of it.

SAP Supply Chain Management & EAM Integration – What You Can Do About the Conflict!

As long as everyone can remember Supply/Procurement groups have always fought with Maintenance people about what each other hasn’t done. Maintenance - “They never get my parts here on time or there is always nil stock…” Supply - “Those maintenance guys never give us enough time to purchase their gear…” Graham will tackle these issues, specifically focussing on the two areas where Supply and Maintenance are tightly integrated in SAP - Service Management and Materials on Work Order. This session will be fully interactive - questions, ideas and solutions from the audience will be sought and highly encouraged.

The SAP Functionality You Already Own: Using One Source of Information to Ensure a Culture of Holistic Asset Management

No person is an island, especially not in the way modern EAM Supply Chains need to function. Collaboration and integration across all departments – maintenance, procurement, warehousing, and finance - is paramount to ensuring you meet your strategic objectives. Cross functional visibility using SAP is essential, but is pointless with poor data integrity and a squall of inconsistent spreadsheets. In the absence of one source of the truth, reliance on 3rd party products and costly consultants increases, while cross functional visibility decreases and, the perception of conflicting departmental “agendas” prevails. Communication and cooperation break down, as departments withdraw into their defensive silos. And so your EAM Supply Chain dis-integrates. Under these circumstances, it is time to use SAP’s standard EAM toolsets to instil authentic integration between planners, buyers, inventory controllers and all their relevant managers! This workshop focusses on using the SAP functionality your already own. You will be able to go back to your work place and start using these reports straight away. This will be a practical workshop drawing on case studies where SAP Customers have grappled with integration challenges, and won, without having to buy more technology. Key takeaways:

  • Get to grips with how using one source of information can ensure a holistic asset management mindset
  • Learn how to establish Focus and Optimisation Forums (or information sharing forums) to break down departmental silos
  • Learn how to identify and eliminate data integrity issues - real time - and not through costly, after-the-fact, quality audits
  • Learn how to keep master data honest, daily.
  • Teach your maintenance teams to confidently update SAP as daily maintenance scenarios change
  • Learn to use standard SAP reports to get your stock levels right
  • Understand how to measure planner, buyer and warehousing’s performance, through effective SAP KPI reporting
  • Learn how to dramatically shift your SAP culture

How to Adapt and Develop Your Skills During Tough Times to Thrive

Susan is a business psychologist with 20 years experience coaching and training senior and middle managers in the Energy and Manufacturing industries.  She specialises in improving cross-functional relationships – especially in this increasingly challenging business environment with tighter budgets and higher efficiency expectations which paradoxically drive up barriers, unhealthy competitiveness and finger pointing. You will learn why Business EQ is so important for your success and discover the critical information that your feelings provide. Also find out how your thinking styles can block your performance and learn the single most important skill for improving relationships.

Innovating Your Shutdowns in Challenging Times

This is a must-attend session for Planners, Schedulers and Maintenance Managers who use SAP to enable their major Shuts or Turnarounds. Shutdowns on many assets account for the lion’s share of most maintenance budgets. During good times, inefficiency and the cost of poor quality are masked by profit. Fixing mistakes is not seen or measured because the focus on production usurps everything. However we now FACE challenging times. Maintenance costs per tonne/unit are going up and trying to do more with less has a knock-on effect to the planning process. Planners and coordinators by default become pseudo asset managers. But they are already under the pump to produce a shutdown plan resulting in asset lifecycle decisions being made by the wrong people under the wrong conditions. The consequences of these knee jerk decisions are not realised immediately but manifest themselves over an extended period of time, impacting future production targets and the whole business. John is one of Australia’s leading Shutdown experts. His Shutdown Readiness Philosophy is highly regarded and proven in the most complex shutdowns around the world.

Prescriptive Analytics and Supply Chain Optimisation Using IoT with SAP HANA on AWS: Live Demo

This demonstration brings together a number of skills and technology and further demonstrates a great way to generate ROI for the SAP HANA Platform.

Closing Keynote: Making Real Connections for a Happier and More Productive You

Did you know that 25% of Australian workers are dissatisfied with their work-life balance, 22% of workers work more than 50 hours per week, 40% take work home, 20% do not get to take a lunch break and 54% of workers believe they are experiencing increases in stress-related illness? And what about this: 76% of Australians feel disengaged at work on some level, costing the economy $55 billion a year! Bruce will provide you with strategies that show you how to be more engaged in your work, how to manage your emotions and avoid second hand stress, and how to fully connect with the people you work with. You will learn five research-proven actions on how to play your role in creating a happier and more productive workplace:

  • Know and live your priorities - you will also be able to define what a healthy work-life balance means to you
  • Be fully engaged at work - employees who feel that their work has meaning and value are happier, more productive and consistently outperform those who don't
  • Manage your emotions – you’ll realise that your emotions are caused by your perceptions
  • Connect with others - people with friends at work are more engaged, more loyal and are better team players.
  • Recharge your batteries - staying healthy and enlisting the support of others will give you both more energy and resilience to stress

Supply chains are experiencing as much as 20% reduction in inventory value by breaking down the silos and improving functional integration.
