Industries We Serve

Chemicals

Chemicals

Chemical plants contain many instances of the same model or version of equipment. With this information in-hand, it is important to ensure that the equipment records, corresponding maintenance tasks, bills of materials (BOMs,) and business critical spares are synchronized to prevent duplication and minimize spare parts inventory. PiLog has extensive experience across the Chemicals industry focusing on reducing spares inventory and optimizing material and equipment master data.

Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas

All segments of the Oil and Gas industry rely on the industry experience of PiLog data professionals. While cutting our teeth on the asset-heavy downstream segment, our professionals have driven data quality to new heights in both midstream and upstream clients, especially in oilfield services. Turn your data into the valuable asset it should be by engaging PiLog’s Data Enrichment Labs for effective cleansing, cataloguing, and classification.

Telecommunications

Telecommunications

Telecommunications companies provide a service that individuals, companies, and countries rely on. Downtime is costly and often critical to various business and governmental operations. Telecommunications companies throughout the world count on PiLog to keep their data properly classified, cleansed, and catalogued while preventing duplication in maintenance parts and spares.

Utilities

Utilities

Utilities have some of the largest “continuous” assets in the world. Whether electric utilities with miles of cable and thousands of towers to water and gas utilities with hundreds of miles of pipes and pipelines, maintenance information is vitally important. To avoid significant disruption in their operations, utilities all over the world rely on PiLog’s Master Data Governance solution to keep their fixed assets, spare parts, and maintenance information correct and up-to-date.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing

With expensive equipment running full-speed at all times, every maintenance event has a critical timeline. Quality Master Data for maintenance tasks, bills of material, and spare parts is a must. Extending Master Data Governance to raw materials, semi-finished goods, and final products can yield significant bottom-line benefits.

Aerospace & Defense

Aerospace & Defense

With large movable equipment and extensive maintenance needs, the industry demands accurate spare parts data along with the proper linkage to maintenance tasks and equipment. The explicit regulatory requirements of regular MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) operations relies on tightly integrated and correct master data for accurate reporting.

Mining & Metals

Mining & Metals

Relying on heavy, expensive equipment to execute on their operational plans, the industry depends on properly classified equipment, BOMs, and spare parts. Whether extracting minerals from large mining operations or turning that mined ore into forged and rolled metal for manufacturing, the industry banks on the quality of its Master Data.

Food & Beverage

Food & Beverage

In this highly regulated industry, PiLog serves the industry leaders with Cleansing and Classification Services as well as Enterprise Asset Management. From bakeries to bottling plants, downtime from unplanned maintenance activities costs the industries millions of dollars per hour. Ensuring accurate maintenance and spare parts data is key to eliminating such delays.

Transportation

Transportation

From trucking companies to airports, our transportation customers rely on our industry experience. Whether identifying all the undocumented assets at a new international airport or building the accurate data to maintain a fleet of rolling stock for an intermodal carrier, the transportation industry runs on data tightly governed by PiLog data professionals.

Textiles

Textiles

The textiles industry has extensive equipment in place with tight maintenance guidelines. Without the proper maintenance information—equipment records, spare parts, and maintenance tasks—expensive unplanned maintenance and work stoppages occur.
