Case Study

Orion Materials Management worked closely with a major operator who required our material management expertise to address the challenges their PSCM business faced.

Their processes in place to identify, control, reserve, order and replenish materials required for operations and maintenance activities suffered several inefficiencies, mainly emanating from a systems setup which hindered the team’s ability to schedule and execute work orders on time.  This jeopardised the reliability of the plant which had previously led to unplanned shutdowns and the loss of $2.5-$3m of cash flow per day.

Project Challenges

  • Complex Operating processes and systems

  • No clear accountability or line of sight on end-to-end processes

  • Significant material backlog posing a significant risk in operation and production

  • Regional KPI metrics amongst some of worst in the business


  • Developed robust processes for value recovery resulting in cost savings of $15m

  • Critical Spare Parts Reviews and Inventory Optimisation resulting in prevention of an unplanned production shutdown saving $2.5m

  • Functional Materials Management Processes rolled out resulting in 75% of procurement backlog cleared and PO automation set for an all-time high for the region

  • Materials Management Transformation Charter delivered covering over 25 key PSCM processes and over 400 actions
