Increased value creation through collaboration

About

Cooperation between operators and suppliers to improve performance and reduce costs

The purpose with the project is to connect operators and suppliers and make it easier for them to interact, solve problems and share data.

By collaborating more, you can help create new solutions and services that can provide high value for your company as well as increase the value creation on the NCS.

The Collaboration Project enables collaboration within specific areas to reduce cost, and also improve image, as the project is promoting standard solutions and agile improvement activities in all aspects of the upstream business.
