OPE$T - OPEX Planning and Performance Optimization Tool

Manage operating costs with transparency across the entire lifecycle of your assets

How effective are your current OPEX planning tools for dealing with tight operating margins and controlled pricing structures?

Leverage the OPE$T™ software tool for optimizing costs and boosting performance during any project phase. The solution is scalable to any size project, from small, single investments to vast regional portfolios. Because no decision is small, it factors in the impact of any choice across an asset’s entire life cycle. By combing this whole life-cycle cost method with activity-based costing and asset-based analysis into one process, users can capture CAPEX/OPEX costs and production/consumption into an actionable, customized model. Asset managers, cost planners and operations engineers use OPE$T to:

  • Forecast OPEX across the life cycle for better investment decisions
  • Facilitate business decisions by simulating their cost effects
  • Challenge current assumptions for continuous improvements
  • Understand CAPEX-OPEX tradeoffs
  • Produce a live cost-benefit analysis model
  • Improve budgeting and enable internal benchmarking

Features
