Showcasing Add Energy's BoM project results: 




To identify the cost impact associated with missing Bill of Materials (BoMs) data




Deep-Water Production Platform


2 Days



What we did

Add Energy’s BoM Calculator was used to identify the extent of missing BoMs in the CMMS, and the impact this had in terms of equipment downtime and unnecessary expenditure.

Add Energy Calculated:

  • Downtime costs
  • Delays in maintenance
  • Unneeded storage costs
  • Obsolete spares
  • Wasted administration time


Using the assets production capacity statistics and benchmarking against industry norms, Add Energy found:

7112 missing Bill of Materials which could save:

  • £4,000,000 one year uptime
  • £1,300,000 one year maintenance
  • £73,600 one year supply chain admin
  • £500,000 one year unused spares


BoM Data Verification, Enrichment and Obsolescence Study


To enrich the asset’s Bill of Materials (BoM) data for optimized spare part sourcing and materials management.

Why Add Energy Were Contacted

The client faced the following challenges:

  • No assurance that the BoM data available in the CMMS was accurate
  • Wasting money buying the wrong parts
  • Overstocking of equipment due to lack of material mastering and the inability to understand what was truly in stock
  • Excessive downtime associated with maintenance due to the correct spare parts not being available to complete planned and corrective maintenance

What We Did

  • Conducted a desktop analysis to identify the extent of the gap
  • Verified existing BoMs with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs)
  • Cleansed BoMs
  • Identified parts that were obsolete and offered replacement suggestions
  • Created new BoMs for tags that did not have a BoM assigned, using our OptiBoM™ software
  • Assigned material masters
  • Created upload templates with updated spare part data and BoMs to be implemented into the CMMS

Add Energy’s Findings

  • Identified 48% of the equipment was missing a BoM
  • 76% of equipment that had a BoM assigned was incorrect or obsolete

The Deliverables

  • CMMS Upload templates containing verified, cleansed, new BoMs and material masters
  • List of equipment that was obsolete and replacement recommendations
  • Testing in the CMMS to assure successful data load

The Benefits

The project delivered by Add Energy allowed the client to:

  • Reduce part sourcing time, wasted costs and associated admin costs
  • Minimize equipment downtime through immediate access to spare parts
  • Have assurance that spares with the right specifications are ordered every time
  • Identify obsolescence early to allow for alternative parts to be sourced or re-engineered in a timely manner, to mitigate risk of downtime
  • Optimise the spares holding
