Traditionally, operational controls focused on managing every process and task in the hope that this would lead to overall excellence. One issue with this is that crucial dependencies could emerge from simple steps, while other metrics might produce no discernible effect on outcomes.

Customer and industry need
Today’s large facilities can involve thousands of wells and hundreds of miles of pipeline. They might operate over distances measured in thousands of miles. So, reacting to problems can be difficult, for example assessing the situation, and then designing and delivering a solution. Knowing issues sooner, and delivering fixes quicker, can provide a real competitive advantage.
