Planning and managing shutdowns, turnarounds and outages in the process plant environment is a complex and demanding function. If turnarounds are not properly planned, managed and controlled, companies run the risks of serious budget overruns, costly schedule delays and negative impacts on customers.

This program has been developed to specifically respond to the need to help owners and contractors meet their turnaround goals. In the development of this training program, a combination of extensive hands-on experience in turnaround planning and execution, input from turnaround teams, and emerging industry trends were blended together to establish best practice turnaround management approaches.

This program is designed to establish a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of effective turnaround management. Numerous examples and case studies based on completed turnarounds are used to emphasize major strategic planning and
management issues essential to successful turnarounds.

The program emphasizes that company staff from different departments, contractors and vendors must combine their knowledge, resources, and energies, and work as a unified team to successfully achieve company goals and turnaround objectives.
