Effective Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage Management

Maintenance Shutdowns and Outages is one of the most challenging periods in the industry covering technical challenge, legislation, financial and logistical issues on a large scale, and this is before the consideration of people side with large teams to bring together and motivate. Shutdowns are the most costly and time-consuming of maintenance projects as these lead to loss of production and expenses involved. In reality, the risk on equipment reliability, production integrity and operation efficiency increase due to machinery failure and unscheduled outages. To avoid production delays and costly maintenance repairs, companies are striving to do the shutdown project as effective and efficiently as they can during the first time around.

Salvo Global’s 3-day intensive Masterclass on “Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage Management” is a practical how-to guide in effectively managing the Shutdown and Outage operations. Delegates will master the foundation for implementing, measuring results and successfully applying today’s best practices for Shutdowns and Outages. In addition, delegates will be introduced to the proven Shutdown Master Checklist that Joel Levitt developed over the years and how to effectively utilize it for their shutdown planning and scheduling. This will serve as a fool proof plan for a successful Shutdown project.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Identify the key driving factors for how Turnaround event will be managed; the more tactical issues of how to plan, prepare and execute STO events
  • Minimize the impact of the Turnaround on business performance
  • Provide senior management with decision metrics to Plan and prepare the objectives, set policies, appoint necessary personnel, set preparation team, gather basic data
  • Develop a culture of Turnaround long-term in business strategy with clear elements
  • Form a steering group with required authority and resources
  • Define and hire local resources, contractors, specialists, internal resources, supervise and perform effective team-building
  • Establish good and clean channels of communication, with efficient timing
  • Integrate different knowledge, and experience for planning, preparing, and executing Turnaround
  • Develop, assess and validate a Turnaround work list
  • Using the validated Work list, Perform a bulk estimate of time and duration of the Turnaround
  • Develop or improve metrics, and checklist to keep Turnaround, cost, safety, quality, inventory and resource under control
  • Understand and operate single point responsibility during shutting down the plant, the execution, and starting up the plant during the Turnaround
  • Learn how to Audit a Turnaround program

Trainer's Background

The trainer is a licensed reliability training specialist under the American Society for Quality Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE) with over 29 years’ industrial field and classroom experience in Operations Technology, engineering reliability analysis and implementation within power generation, food processing, rotating equipment; heavy duty industries, hydraulic pumps and valves. He holds a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering majored in Materials Science and Engineering Reliability, Failure Analysis from University of Ottawa.

His expertise includes analysing failure patterns for industrial assets and defining failure mode effects and mechanism and criticality analysis (FMECA). He uses the Plan Wellness Way (PWW) Physics of Failures Factors Analysis strategy management (POFFA) model to identify critical components and bad sectors. He is also adept in developing management programs for operation, production, maintenance and design, and improvement and cost reduction programs.

He has designed and developed training curriculums and contents to address identified skill gaps that hinder operations and processes benefits and timely deliveries. Based on reliability modelling and prediction, reliability design, testing and reliability management tools, he analysed, applied and documented tools and techniques including failure analysis, risk assessment and ranking, root cause analysis, failure modes effect and criticality analysis and HAZOP.

The trainer is passionate about reliability and continuous improvement, and committed in fostering PWW/LRS (Plant Wellness Way/ Lifetime Reliability Solutions) through failure elimination, reliability excellence, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Preventive, Predictive maintenance, CBM, and RCM strategies. His training helped many industrial organizations to save great money and time as their people became aware and advised to take ownership and perform value-creating operation and repair decisions, accurate testing, data collection, and analysis, failures elimination strategies.
