CASE STUDY
TWPL
The Woodhouse Partnership Limited

The Woodhouse Partnership Limited (TWPL) are a specialist asset management engineering consultancy. TWPL works across industries involving complex and business-critical industrial assets such as utilities, transport and oil and gas. 

As one of the UK’s leading experts in the field, TWPL helps its customers achieve efficient and cost-saving approaches to asset management. 

“We had a large, complex software project which required experienced and highly skilled software engineers. We are very happy we chose CCQ Tech and work with them to this day.” – John Woodhouse, CEO

Challenge

TWPL appointed CCQ to create a best in market data-led Decision Support Tool (DST) to licence to their clients as part of the cross-industry Salvo project. 

CCQ’s challenge was to understand often vast and complex engineering calculus and algorithmic approaches to asset management data and workflows. 

Leveraging this understanding, we set out to translate TWPL’s decision mapping into a software package to help organisations answer questions like “When should I replace my ageing asset?” and “What’s the best way to do so?”

Solution

CCQ delivered a modular DST solution enabling the owners of industrial assets to improve individual and multi-faceted decision making – informing pools of spares, when and how physical assets are inspected, maintained, maintenance scheduled and replacement due.

The DST’s analysis and predictions provide access to the data and modelling clients need to optimise asset management across their estates. Each decision informed by the DST can save millions due to improved timing and efficient execution – while minimising risk.

CCQ built Customisable BI dashboards to ensure easy access to critical insights. We were additionally asked to take over an existing code base and rewrite it over time to deliver a fit for purpose application ready to scale.
