Turnaround Assist Program (T-AP)
|Turnaround Assist Program (T-AP¬©) |
AP-Networks has developed the Turnaround Assistance Program (T-AP) to enable and provide assurance that best practices are being implemented to generate safe, event-free, predictable, and competitive turnaround outcomes. The T-AP helps teams predictably and safely plan and execute turnarounds. Our turnaround consultants provide your organization with an objective, outside perspective on all of the strategic decisions and tactical activities needed to implement a successful shutdown. Combined with AP-Networks‚Äô world class tools, our experienced staff and industry leading methodologies have consistently delivered the most cost-efficient and incident-free turnaround possible. The senior consultants who lead these engagements are uniquely qualified and collectively have reviewed and managed more than 800 turnarounds worldwide.
Recent trends have only magnified the importance of planning and preparation prior to a plant shutdown. Industry performance for high complexity turnarounds has been especially poor with very few shutdowns meeting their planned goals. AP-Networks works closely with the turnaround team at all planning and preparation stages to identify turnaround risks and mitigate those major risks that threaten meeting key objectives. The engagements are done at four major points during the turnaround life cycle and provide value across the entire enterprise by:
- Identifying potential issues and performance gaps early to mitigate risks and avoid disasters.
- Aligning team members with each other and with the goals of upper management.
- Developing a detailed, on-target action plan for the turnaround.
