Automate Scheduling for Predictable Petroleum Supply

Scheduling applications streamline the procurement and manufacturing functions at petroleum refineries. In an article published in the Oil & Gas Financial Journal, our expert discusses the importance of scheduling in an integrated refinery supply chain.

Automated production planning and scheduling ensures smooth operations and maximizes the value of oil refinery assets by:

  • Addressing fluctuations in the quality and quantity of feedstock, intermediates and finished products
  • Evaluating operational constraints such as pumping capacity and pipeline flow rate
  • Minimizing the idle time of chartered vessels
  • Optimizing the utilization of storage tanks
