BeeWe

Identification

All those stocks are managed in different local management system tools, with no guidelines on how managing our stocks and no consolidation at any level of the organization. As a consequence, working capital represents a very high amount of cash immobilized either on thermal or renewables activities.

BeeWe aims at rationalizing spare parts inventory. BeeWe's ambition is that as many sites as possible join the movement and start sharing their stock. Pooling resources helps to reduce investment through purchasing savings, reduces carbon footprint by limiting overproduction of spare parts, as well as limits replacement delays in the event of a breakdown. BeeWe is proud that its vision of optimizing inventory, fully aligned with Engie’s business purpose, contributes to accelerating the transition to a carbon-neutral economy, through a more energy-efficient solution that also acts for the environment through using available spare parts. The name ‘BeeWe’ is a reference to the bee (« Bee ») and to the community (« We ») because this solution has been inspired by the industrious bees around their hive: a more rational storage system, thanks to collective intelligence in an eco-efficiency approach.

Implementation Stories

BeeWe by Engie
Implemented by ENGIE in () in 2021

ENGIE Thermal Activities manages several legal entities, based in several countries that operate and maintain a large number of thermal plants for the benefits of their clients, each plant representing dozens of thousands of spare parts to manage. Before adopting the Solution, spare parts were managed independently, at each entity level. In 2021, they subscribed to the platform. They since have access to standardized dashboards that help identify and valorize useless spare parts on other sites.

Result

Over the last 2 years, net gain stock optimization represented 950,000 ⍬
