Equipment availability is critical for operations to meet production targets. Strategy and execution tactics for how and when to perform optimized turnarounds is a significant driver of value. It is essential that turnarounds are performed safely; leveraging cross-functional teams to reduce duration and costs while at the same time executing the work to result in increased plant up time.
Achieving excellence in TE means developing a clear 3 to 5 year strategy for turnarounds to ensure execution and delivery of optimized turnarounds. This includes a safe work environment, turnaround management systems, rigorous scope, risk management, materials and contractor procurement, detailed scheduling process, change order and "found work" processes, effective project controls, contractor management disciplines, and clearly understood ramp-down and start-up procedures.
