Fluix Success Story

Siemens Gamesa Offshore Construction Training and Deployment Processes Go Digital

Siemens Gamesa Success Story
“Fluix allowed us to reduce the training time and made it easier for technicians to upskill on multiple projects.”
Before
  • Time-consuming, manual training process
  • Loss of paper training documents on remote sites
  • Limited control over training evaluation process
After
  • Reduced technician training time and deployment costs with corporate training software
  • Updated, secured data in real-time using customized digital logbooks and checklists
  • Accelerated approval and verification with e-Signatures
Background

Simple workflows with a huge impact

With highly demanding quality and safety requirements and high technical complexity of products, the world’s largest offshore wind turbine manufacturer, Siemens Gamesa, performs continuous upskilling of technicians through on-the-job training on offshore construction sites.
Challenges

Keeping data and team in sync

Siemens Gamesa, Offshore Construction employs nearly 1,000 technicians working offshore on different geographical locations and they faced huge challenges when upskilling and deploying technicians:
1
Time spent on training
With constant rotations of technicians and remote locations, managing training records on paper and Excel was time-consuming and challenging.
2
Data damage or loss
Technicians’ significant travel schedules increased the risk of losing necessary on-job training documentation.
3
Signatures verification
Getting all the required training checklists approved and signed by various parties was challenging.
Solution

Enabling more productive workflows

The renewable energy company was looking for a transparent, automated and lean onboarding software to replace the previous manual paper processes. Siemens Gamesa’s employee product training processes were optimized by implementing Fluix as an internal training management software:
  • Customized digital technician logbooks and new employee training checklists with an organized process to track progress of on-the-job training and upskilling. Each logbook consists of onsite task lists performed under the supervision of a trainer and must be signed off and approved by various parties on site and in the office.
  • Deployment readiness checklists of all mandatory requirements to be fulfilled and validated before going to site (e.g. inductions, personal protection expiration, valid work visa etc.). Technicians must confirm each requirement through employee training tracking software in order to get the final “go” to be allowed to travel to site.
“Thanks to our digital logbooks, we make sure that our technicians have all the needed competencies and that they have been approved by everyone involved in the process.”
