BP, one of the world’s leading oil and gas companies, is the principal owner and operator of wind power facilities with interests in 16 wind farms across the US. BP Alternative Energy employs hundreds of engineers across the United States to manage and maintain their Wind Farms.

Business Challenge


BP wanted to address some of the inefficiencies in their Work Management System – specifically, slow responsive times in performing wind turbine repairs and a large amount of missing information on turbine maintenance checks.

Approach


By shadowing engineers throughout their day Tigerspike identified that the inefficiencies faced by BP’s engineers were due to overly complex paper based process. Tigerspike developed an iPad prototype which was iterated based on feedback from engineers who tested the concept on site.

Outcome


By mobilising BPs maintenance processes & integrating geo-location technology into the solution, BP were able to improve the overall quality and accuracy of turbine maintenance, while giving back valuable time to the engineers and the business. Additionally, replacing heavy paper manuals and laptops with a tablet created a safer environment for the engineers.
