Distribution and supply chain optimization
Successfully fulfilling contracts and maximizing market opportunities requires highly visible, flexible and responsive distribution and supply chain management. We offer non-linear process simulation technologies that enable optimal feedstock selection, coupled with technologies that allow plant personnel to schedule and simulate operations on an integrated supply chain topological model allowing quick identification of potential imbalances between interdependent operations. For suppliers to other producers we also offer cloud-based services to monitor product inventories and process operations in your customer’s facilities to extend the visibility of your supply chain beyond the plant.

A major US Gulf Coast multinational oil and gas company asked KBC to perform an assessment of crude oil supply and storage, including leased terminal facilities and piping supplies. Their objective was to increase flexibility in storage and transfer methods to enable processing of a greater variety of crude oils and improve the refinery margin.Read case study
We offer deep industry and operations domain knowledge to ensure you focus on the right KPIs and set realistic operating targets. Many of our software applications include robust built-in data reconciliation algorithms to eliminate interpretation errors due to bad or missing data.
Feedstock is the biggest operating cost for most plants. We offer deep know-how of industry and production economics, coupled with high fidelity simulation models to allow accurate prediction and optimization of feedstock choices.
We offer high fidelity simulation models of process facilities to faithfully represent reality, utilizing fundamental chemical and mechanical principles to create accurate digital twins of process facilities. Our subject matter experts can then provide advice and opinion to enhance yield performance and throughput.
We offer industry-leading energy and utility system optimization technologies and consulting advice enabled to identify a multitude of cost, environmental and operating improvements that balance the yield-energy trade-off.
We offer state-of-the-art technology that enables production accounting and data reconciliation. In addition, we can provide loss studies which incorporate benchmarking performance against best practice, and development of product loss management programs.
Manufacturing facilities only generate value when they are running. We offer consulting solutions focused on asset strategy, leadership alignment and governance model development, through to reliability assurance, online maintenance and shutdown maintenance support.
