BP has a vision of becoming the leading downstream operator by 2025. To help achieve this vision, BP joined forces with Accenture to launch a global digital transformation program.
An inaugural lighthouse program in Australia is leading the way and enabling a user-centric refinery workforce of the future through a focus on productivity innovations, Agile DevOps, cutting-edge extended reality and artificial intelligence innovations. The goal is to locally develop digital solutions that can be globally scaled to other BP sites.
The power of One Accenture (including the Perth Innovation Hub, Fjord, Avanade and our partners) converged to co-create and redefine what the future of BP could look like and quickly drive value through modular functionalities and digital accelerators. Design thinking workshops which helped frame the needs of front-line workers, coupled with shadowing real operations on the ground, identified two high-value product streams to meet immediate needs–Mobile-Enabled Field Worker and Wearables for Inspections.
People and culture
BP’s innovations are ensuring its people are safer while working faster and more reliably, a portfolio of mobile applications is freeing BP’s workforce from their desks and a mobility solution for visual inspections is supporting inspection efficiency.
Being immersed in an agile and innovative approach has also opened BP’s mind to more possibilities as it continues on its digital transformation journey.
BP is challenging its existing ways of working and finding new and better ways to solve problems. With Accenture's help, BP is unlocking value by understanding issues and working in an agile way to develop sustainable solutions that can be used immediately to make work safer and more efficient. The two product streams – Mobile-Enabled Field Worker and Wearables for Inspections – will provide significant improvements in process efficiency, productivity savings, automated transactional activities and more.
