YPF is the largest oil producer in Argentina. It has 43% of the oil and gas production market and 58% of the gasoline market in the country. They hired consultants from Continente Siete to develop a decision support system (DSS) for determining work schedules.
The new maintenance planning system helped YPF save $18 million annually at the pilot implementation site. Forecasts suggest, the integration of the DSS with the work processes of other sites should save the company another $234 million per year.
