'Plant shutdowns are the most expensive and time-consuming of maintenance projects because of the loss of production and the expense of the turnaround itself. They are complex; and as the complexity increases, they become more costly and difficult to manage'.
A plant shutdown almost always has a negative financial impact. This negative impact is due to a number of different factors but predominantly the loss of production revenue and a major cash outlay for the plant turnaround and shutdown expenses.
Routine maintenance often consists of high volume but less complex work and is incredibly dependent on scheduling and the allocation and tracking of resources.
The positive side of either is not as obvious; therefore, it is often over looked. The positive impacts are an increase in equipment and asset reliability, continued production integrity, and a reduction in the risk of unscheduled outages or catastrophic failure.
Visibility and access to project information for the entire enterprise from a single source will streamline operations and reduce costs - but for many enterprises, that information is often not easily available.
Whether your role is in the boardroom or getting your hands dirty on the plant floor, rich and readily available project details enable smarter decisions.
For executives, issues of a strategic nature - like project cash flow, risks and costs - need to be instantly accessible in order to drive longer-term alignment with enterprise goals. For those who are tasked with managing specific short-cycle projects decision-making speed is critical.
Everybody needs the confidence that they'll have resources they need - the right ones - for the tasks associated with the work all in a timely manner. From our first hand experience, a lack of technology - or the wrong technology - and processes can result in costs getting out of control, completion dates slipping, resources being overscheduled, and no clear enterprise view of projects and their progress.
