March 1, 2016 by AP-Networks Leave a Comment As an industry, we have empirical measures for readiness, risk profile, and organizational capability, among other key aspects of turnaround and shutdown planning and execution. However, there is a gaping hole in our collective toolset: How do we effectively benchmark and evaluate turnaround scope? What is the relationship between turnaround scope and turnaround practices & performance outcomes? Optimizing scope is integral to successful execution. But to successfully and repeatably optimize scope, we need a way to quantitatively measure scope. And now we have developed one: the Turnaround Scope Index, debuted last year by AP-Networks. But how does it work? What data powers it? And how do we use it to achieve better turnaround and shutdown outcomes? We’ll be discussing this topic on Thursday, March 24th 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.
