Meet Product Specifications

We understand that meeting your customers’ expectations is the most critical part of your process.  If you can’t deliver product that meets the required specifications, then you can’t deliver your inventory.

At Minitab, we understand the ways in which to measure and analyze product specifications to ensure consistency and desired results.  Using continuous improvement tools and methodologies - alongside data analysis - enables you to not only achieve your desired targets, but also continuously improve your product.  The result is more product delivered which means happier customers and a bigger bottom line.

Reduce Supply Chain Costs

The oil & gas industry tends to have more complex supply chains than most industries.  That’s why seeking solution to reduce costs and improve performance are critical to driving competitive advantage.

Throughout the oil supply chain process, when oil is transported to storage, refineries, terminals, and finally to the point of sale, there are multiple opportunities for improvement.  With trains, trucks, ships, and pipelines all playing a role in the transportation of crude oil from production to the point of sale, each deliver unique problems along with opportunities to better your process.

At Minitab, we partner with all the oil & gas equipment services and petroleum refining companies in the Fortune 100 which means we’ve helped the largest companies around the globe improve their supply chain and overall performance.  Our experience and understanding of your industry can help benefit you to reduce costs in your supply chain, even during challenging times.
