BI-Cycle is an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) that is focusing its efforts on industries where reliability is crucial.
The majority of our customers are in capital-intensive industries with continuously operated installations that have large and complex data-structures in place.
BI-Cycle has established a network of partners to approach and support these customers.
In today's production facilities, maintenance plays a crucial role in improving plant performance. Not only the costs of maintenance itself, but also the costs of production losses resulting from breakdown and plant overhaul constitute important factors in the financial results of the Company.
BI-Cycle has recognized this when it started its activities in 1996. Software tools were developed that support the creation of cost effective maintenance programs. Initially the efforts were concentrated on Nuclear and Fossil Power Industries. Some years later this was followed by chemical and petro-chemical industries as well as oil & gas exploration.
BI-Cycle is currently being used by Fortune 500 companies throughout Europe and the USA in industries such as:
Customers include Repsol, Oreda, Scania, Statnett, Vattenfall and Nordic Sugar. BI-Cycle is carrying out business development activities in the Defense industry.

BI-Cycle is built to support a maintenance improvement process that has an excellent track record in various types of industries. BI-Cycle works together with certified maintenance consultants to implement and support this process. The BI-Cycle improvement process is shown in the image below.
A maintenance program/plan aims at a high level of plant availability and safety by means of cost-effective maintenance tasks. Over the years a wealth of experience data is generated in the form of work orders, failures, spare part usage, projects, process data, etc. Thorough analysis of this accumulated history will bring to light bad equipment, root causes, ineffective maintenance tasks and unnecessary costs, ultimately leading to decisions that change in the maintenance program.
Fredrik Holm, Maintenance engineer at Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant, Sweden:
BI-Cycle has shown us that we can use our maintenance history data in a far more effective way than we thought, both with easy trend analysis and ranking of equipment. Improving our maintenance effectiveness is of key importance for OKG in order to meet existing and future demands to reduce maintenance costs, while keeping a high safety level and availability. Several RCM pilot studies with support of BI-Cycle have shown that BI-Cycle is a good complementary product for reaching our goals.
BI-Cycle provides support in every step of the improvement cycle. It assists in collecting and analyzing data as well as in making well-documented RCM based improvement decisions. BI-Cycle provides
