February 9, 2016 by AP-Networks Leave a Comment Here at AP-Networks, we possess Industry’s largest database of turnaround and shutdown observations. And the trend we’ve observed more than any other is the strong correlation between planning readiness and performance outcomes. In short, increased planning readiness means improved performance outcomes. The more thorough your shutdown planning, the better your chances of a successful execution. So what happens when you’re faced with an unexpected shutdown? Do you simply write off the event as a failure? Or is it possible to still maintain a degree of readiness, even when faced with the unexpected? We’ll be discussing this topic on Wednesday, March 23rd at the Turnaround Industry Network Conference (TINC) Europe. TINC Europe is the premier symposium for sharing best practices to deliver safe, event-free, predictable, and competitive outcomes. Register now, and add your voice to the conversation.
