Floating Production Facility Procurement Best Practices

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Floating Production Facility category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Floating Production Facility procurement best practices.

For example, Buyers must have a clear understanding of the subcontracting policies, if any, of Floating Production Facility suppliers. Factors such as cost incurred, service quality, adherence to timelines, and regulatory compliance of subcontractors employed by suppliers should be carefully assessed prior to engagement.

Strong R&D focus is the sign of a supplier committed to enhancing the quality and cost proposition of its solutions. Buyers should collaborate with such suppliers for development of low-cost but highly efficiency products that can bring their OPEX down.

Buyers should engage with suppliers that have adopted a global delivery model as it reduces buyers' risk. In this model, any disaster/emergency at any operating facility of supplier will result in the work being transferred to a different facility, thereby ensuring continuity of the project and reduced risk for buyers. This model also provides buyers access to skilled labor from across the globe, thereby improving the quality of engineering products provided by the supplier.

Risks in Floating Production Facility procurement

Floating Production Facility procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Floating Production Facility procurement. Some examples include:


  • With changing technologies, the manufacturing, packaging and labelling requirements have become more stringent than ever across geographies globally. RFID tags, temperature sensors, and barcode scanners, have become common requirements across the category. There is also an increase in the adoption of technologies such as AI and IoT. Therefore, suppliers incur excessive costs to keep upgrading their technology and to ensure maintenance of these technologies across various stages of the product category
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Floating Production Facility
  • Political and regulatory changes pose significant risks to the category. For instance, imposition of tariffs on raw materials required to manufacture the finished goods increases costs. Similarly, restrictions on import of goods or raw materials from a particular country also contributes to significant risks. Additionally, insufficient IPR protection and product liability lawsuits lead turnout to be huge risk factors for the category
