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.
Shutdowns, Turnarounds, and Outages is a hands-on, stimulating learning experience.
The program will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment.
To ensure the concepts introduced during the program are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture-style presentations, open discussion, case studies, simulations, and group work.
Organizations that expose participants to the training and development experience provided by this program will be contributing to building a core of knowledgeable and skilled staff who will be able to add value through their contributions to more effective preparation, planning, scheduling, execution and control of shutdowns and turnarounds.
They will be able to contribute in leadership or operational roles, both with knowledge and skills to ensure shutdowns and turnarounds are effectively planned, scheduled and executed and leverage these techniques to improve productivity and cost-effectiveness.
