Planning, scheduling, estimating, and managing shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages (STO) in a plant environment is a complex and demanding function. If STO is not properly planned, managed, and controlled, plants run the risks of serious budget overruns, costly schedule delays, and the negative financial impact of the STO on a plant.
