Saudi Basic Industries Corporation, which is also known as SABIC, is considered to be the largest and the most respectable non-oil company in the Saudi Arabia. It is also one of the world’s biggest petrochemical producers. The company is located in Riyadh; the government possesses 70 % of company’s shares and private investors hold the rest. SABIC headed by Dr. Fahd Al-Sherehy is a leading producing corporation specializing in four major areas: chemicals, polymers, fertilizers, and performance and engineering thermoplastic. SABIC supplies those materials to other producers who utilize them for making a relevant production (SABIC 2010).
The main purpose of our project is aimed at improving the facilities and equipment of the company in order to increase the rates of production and reserve the image at the international level. In particular, “SABIC remains committed to its strategy of growth for the important European market” and, therefore, “all options such as the upgrading of the current asset base and supply from the global SABIC system” (Versteed, 2006, p. 19). Another aim is also to bring the most respectable software companies into play and decide which ones will perfectly meet the requirements. Finally, it is necessary to outline what software should be introduced and in what way it would improve the input of this non-oil company.
The major dilemma the company faces, which will be also considered as the problem statement of the research, is law software quality. Saudi Basis Industries Corporation, known as “the main beneficiary of this massive industrial project, emerged as the major player in the international petrochemical industry scene,” can distort is respectable image by the absence of modernized computer technologies (AlSayyad, 1998, p. 618). The problem is aggravated when considering the fact that the country has entered the era of industrial and technological revolution. Another problem lies in the fact that software selection depends on numerous factors, such as quality, functions, and application (Maxwel et al., 1999, p. 787). Currently, SABIC major problem is connected with distributed control and operating systems, which should be replaced with the latest versions (Verteed, 2006, p. 20).
A viable solution to the problem will be the introductions of Emerson AMS tools, which are considered one of the most reliable software that can considerably improve the system of data exchange within the company. This technology will also help “to establish a strategic competency in design and usability” (Parson 2008). By applying this computer technology to the production process, the company will benefit in several terms. First, the company will help to develop international partnership with other related companies. Second, this center has also introduced an innovative production line of digital multifunction projects. Thirdly, AMS technologies allow to create of beneficial software intensive complex systems (Parson). As for distributed controls systems (DCS), it is better to analyze the design and to carry out a profound research. It should be also stressed that DSC development constitutes the major concern for industrial business and, therefore, it requires the application of different testing procedures (Caspi et al., 2001, p. 215).
As a recommendation for future research, it is possible to carry out different aspects of the research. First of all, it is necessary to analyze the major technological gaps suffered by SABIC. Then, the research should involve what should be improved and what software should be introduced. Finally, there is the necessity to define why software introduction will ameliorate the operation production sphere of the company.
