Cost-effective energy production depends on high process uptimes with no unscheduled production breaks. All stakeholders in the energy value chain are striving to reduce friction in maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) management. One major challenge is to mitigate supply chain risks all the while meeting service requirement levels and maintaining high safety levels. Energy operators, solution integrators and service companies typically mitigate these risks by maintaining an over-populated spare part inventory. The solution is highly cost ineffective and not sustainable.
Fieldmade’s solution and services enable the future supply chain solution where spare parts are delivered in a digital format – allowing for on-demand manufacturing of components on-site, in or near real time. Our additive manufacturing micro-factories are designed according to industry-specific standards as well as meeting robustness and security requirements. Combining additive manufacturing and operation management expertise, we facilitate the digitalization of spare parts, supporting the sector’s transition towards digital supply chains.
