Executive Summary

The refining industry is driven by tight margins, and oil companies are constantly looking for ways to boost efficiency and reduce costs. Chevron has found significant savings in standardizing refinery process steps using mobile workflow software and rugged PDAs to deliver decision support to field workers. Chevron implemented the solution using Wonderware's Mobile Workforce Management and Decision Support System, IntelaTrac, powered by Windows Mobile software. With IntelaTrac, Chevron has increased refinery operating reliability, reduced maintenance costs, and improved safety and environmental compliance. Chevron estimates that these process improvements will save the company U.S.$3 million to $5 million annually. Chevron has also found that IntelaTrac helps capture process knowledge before workers retire and speed new-worker assimilation through mobile learning.
