RigPlan™ 2011 Software
RigPlan resource scheduling.
Weatherford's RigPlan desktop scheduling tool provides the visualization and control needed to ensure that rigs and assets are effectively used. The user interface offers a multilevel calendar that displays where each rig is currently working, its expected completion time and the time frame for the next scheduled job.
Times are updated based on input from the WSM application in the Field Office™ suite. If a job is running long, the user can see the effect it will have on future jobs and enables rescheduling to better use rigs to avoid unnecessary downtime. The application provides more than just a calendar of scheduled events. Operators using RigPlan software can take advantage of opportunistic scheduling, meaning that if there is an opening in the schedule a rig can be rescheduled to a nearby job even though it may not be the highest priority task in the queue. It enables the operator to take other factors into consideration such as location of nearby rig and expected time to complete the task verses travel time to a different task. This feature enables all the rigs to be used optimally rather than just executing jobs in the original priority order..
