Simulation Analysis of the Oil Gathering and Transportation Process on Activity-Based Costing
The oil gathering and transportation process is a key link in the oil industry. In this paper, to reengineer the ground works process of an oil production plant as an example of business process reengineering, the simulations of the oil and gas gathering and transportation process before and after the business process reengineering are conducted by using of SIMPROCESS software. While the utilization rate of various devices is compared with process simulation results to find the bottlenecks in processes, and a brief analysis of activities costs is presented.
