Shutdowns are the most costly and time-consuming of maintenance projects, projects, as these lead to loss of production and expenses involved. In reality, the risk of equipment reliability, production integrity, and operation efficiency increases due to machinery failure and unscheduled outages. To avoid production delays and costly maintenance repairs, companies are striving to do the shutdown project as effectively and efficiently as they can the first time around.

Planning, scheduling, estimating, and managing shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages (STO) in a plant environment is a complex and demanding function.
