Strategic Sourcing Guide to Offshore Platforms Procurement

Overview

The market for Non-Military Vehicles and its sub-segments such as Offshore Platforms are at an interesting intersection. Procurement costs for Offshore Platforms are highly impacted by an increase in the costs associated with the value chain of Offshore Platforms, such as logistics, labor cost and energy. Additionally, outdated assets are also increasing the cost for suppliers.

Suppliers are continuously taking efforts to improve efficiencies and productivity and deploying processes and technologies. Some of these investments are likely to increase their costs in the shorter term, but learnings from other sectors keep the suppliers optimistic about a lean cost structure in the longer run.

Volatility in the prices of key inputs is creating multiple issues that impact procurement within Offshore Platforms category such as benchmarking and budgeting of the procurement costs.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Offshore Platforms is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Offshore Platforms Procurement Best Practices

Offshore Platforms procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Offshore Platforms procurement strategy.

For example, Buyers should assess the level of adoption of the latest technologies by suppliers to assess cost-saving opportunities and quality that can be provided by the latter. For instance, the adoption of technologies such as cloud computing will enable suppliers to reduce their internal computing hardware requirements for operations such as CAD and CAM. This can, in turn, enable them to reduce their operating costs, thereby suppliers can offer products at lower rates to buyers.

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.

Buyers need to evaluate the in-depth expertise of suppliers in the Offshore Platforms industry. This can be assessed by considering factors such as the years of experience, number of resources that have multi-year experience of working in the same industry and at least 3 to 5 credentials for the supplier.

Risks in Offshore Platforms procurement

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


  • Pricing terms in the contract could prove to be inadequate to safeguard the buyer from impact of a sudden increase in supplier's cost, often arising from a lack of clarity on scope of products or services to be delivered
  • 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
  • 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 Offshore Platforms
