The Challenge with SAP Data

Many companies start appreciating the value of good SAP data when they realise that it can be a potent source of competitive advantage. However, realising its benefits is far from straightforward. Inconsistences can often arise between real world and digital data, making reliable business insights almost impossible to achieve. But that’s not all. Bad SAP data can also lead to serious operational issues that must be avoided.

Maintenance Excellence (EAM) – SAP Data Standards

When this leading independent exploration and production (E&P) company embarked on a 4-year journey to set new standards in safety-critical maintenance, they chose AG as their SAP implementation partner.

AG developed the SAP design, defined the standards in SAP of huge amounts of complex maintenance data and carried out all data remediation activity. The work allowed the company to achieve IT processes and data in SAP that were fully aligned to their business and industry best practice – such as ISO 14224. While their Maintenance Excellence Programme is not yet complete, with the help of AG they are fast realising a fully structured, preventative and predictive approach to maintenance management.

Complex SAP Data Remediation (EAM)

AG led a highly complex project to cleanse and migrate to SAP maintenance data as part of a leading E&P company’s Maintenance Excellence programme. AG had already defined the SAP data standards, but now had to ensure these were applied to all data. The project, were Winshuttle was used to upload the remediated data, involved a high number of activities that followed stringent policies and procedures.

The result was complete maintenance data now in SAP in the right format and following the correct hierarchy. This enabled the business to undertake the right maintenance going forward, prioritising what was safety critical.

AG Smart Solution for Master Data

When this large gas and electricity provider struggled to keep maintenance data up-to-date in SAP, they asked AG for help. Previously, any change requests would be directed to a central IT team who would take up to 8 weeks to action the updates. Errors were also typical due to lack of maintenance knowledge.

AG gave engineers control back over their data. Using Winshuttle, they built a form-based solution that incorporated extensive logic and added features, such as SAP user governance. The forms provided an easy-to-use interface for directly updating SAP in real time and catered for many requirements. This hugely improved lead times and data quality while also allowing IT to focus on value-adding tasks.
