Petrochemical Update Releases the 2018 Achieving Operational Excellence in Maintenance and Turnarounds Owners Guide

Petrochemical Update, January 22, 2018

Petrochemical Update are pleased to announce the release of our 2018 Achieving Operational Excellence in Maintenance and Turnarounds Owners Guide, which is now available for you to download.

With increasingly squeezed budgets, reduced margins, aging assets and pressure to improve productivity, Maintenance and Turnaround departments must shift away from an outlook of ‘this is how we have always done things’ to one where new innovations, process and technologies are embraced organisation-wide.

In light of this, Petrochemical Update spoke with Dow, BP, Addivant and Appian to outline:

  • Top challenges turnaround and maintenance teams have faced and the innovative solutions they created that led to operational excellence including: scheduling and planning changes, job description updates, developing review processes and implementing Industry 4.0.
  • Balancing technology with communication, and leadership strategies that promote operational excellence.
  • Augmenting communication and management with technology and game changers that help teams automate turnaround tasks and reduce non-productive time and end paper tracking.
  • Plus, technology to increase collaboration and show a full audit history of who is doing what, when and why

Our aim is to provide a critical analysis of some of the top challenges owners are facing today in these departments.
