Meisterplan for the Energy Industry

Flexible Resource Management

Quickly adapt to change, easily optimize resources and reprioritize projects

The World’s Most Effective Companies Rely on Meisterplan

Overcoming Uncertainty with Meisterplan

The energy industry and particularly the oil and gas industry is much more project intense than other industries. As the market fluctuates, energy companies have to adapt by canceling projects that have already been started, delaying projects in the pipeline, or launching new projects. However, changing with the market can be incredibly difficult for companies without the proper tools. Meisterplan is a project management and resource management tool that allows energy companies to quickly respond to changing markets.

Meisterplan gives decision-makers a clear overview of project costs, employee workloads, project dependencies and potential staffing bottlenecks. In a single view, users can see all of the project information they need to make strategic decisions. Meisterplan also offers real-time scenario planning that allows users to best plan for changes in the market and understand what reactions will be needed to keep up. You can avoid project delays, finish projects on time, and know when you need to start increasing your workforce to meet demand.

These benefits have allowed Nordex, a pioneer in wind energy, to easily make strategic decisions about which projects should be carried out based on priority, cost, and alignment to the company’s focus. With Meisterplan, Nordex can quickly answer two important questions: (1) Where are the portfolio constraints? and (2) how can we resolve them?

There are a lot of things that go into a project plan besides the timing and resources. We need a lot of context and it shouldn't be a surprise when a project needs attention. Our projects need to tie back to our mission and what we want to achieve. With Meisterplan, we can make informed decisions and move the organization forward.

What Dan Loves About Meisterplan

One of our problems was being able to show everybody our portfolio plan. Now we see all our projects we would talk about, graphically depicted. You can see their durations and when you scroll down, you can see the team. Maybe these two projects are significant and they're taking two resources each for this period of time. We can now see how much room is in the capacity bucket that we have left to fill. From here we can look at our options. Using Meisterplan to do that helps us show our work and provide transparency.
