Plant shutdown management

Industrial plants have to undergo a scheduled process outage for the maintenance work that is referred to as ‘plant shutdown’ and the management of such plant shutdown is known as the ‘plant turnaround’. Turnaround (TA) has certain unique features in comparison to project management. There are several complexities involved in turnaround management in terms of technology, business and maintenance. Turnaround result mainly depends on participative efforts of the team and demand focused performance objectives.
