Oil Sands Project Revolutionizes Inspection Process with Jovix ® This Canadian oil sands mining project processes 110 million tons of oil sand yearly, yielding 194,000 barrels of bitumen daily at full production. Jovix was deployed on the secondary extraction which brought the project to first oil in 2017 and ramped up in the Spring of 2018. Jobsite Challenges • Inspected material from 250+ suppliers • Manually produced inspection checklists • No scalability • Shipment instructions from multiple suppliers varied • Inspection checklists manually entered into Excel With so many vendors, shipment instructions varied significantly, and the lack of standardized processes for receipt inspections made it difficult to train receivers. Manual inspections were difficult to track, store and receive. Before data entry, scalability could only be achieved by scanning or copying the physical documents. Whether from receipt or preservation and maintenance inspections, data entry coordinators manually entered inspection checklists into Excel, and spreadsheets were aggregated to build reports. The process was flawed and an expensive use of labor. A variable time gap between the inspector submitting checklists and report population meant that reporting was rarely up to date. The Goal? Efficiency and Visibility Solution Jovix was deployed to provide a full inspection management service, including receipt inspections used as triggers to flag and quarantine overages, shortages and damages (OS&Ds). It provided immediate visibility into discrepancies between project and vendor inspections for the same equipment. The project could also schedule recurring inspections, providing preventative maintenance and preservation of materials.
