The Benefit of Using Norms in iPlanSTO
Anyone in the Turnaround Maintenance planning game knows that a) accurate & b) consistent, task estimation is a challenge. This is then further complicated when calculating the duration, effort & cost of 10000’s of activities of a major capital project – a daunting prospect! From decades of experience, we have seen how wildly activity estimates can range, even amongst the most experienced of planners and estimators. This is due to the immense complexity and scale of capital projects, and a little known phenomenon called anchoring. In this blog we look at how norms can increase the accuracy of our estimation and refine your estimates to achieve a plus or minus accuracy of 10%.
The benefits of Plant Turnaround benchmarking
Benchmarking is a key aspect in optimizing your plant turnarounds! It allows you to compare the performance of prior TAs and use this information to improve future planning by assessing historical costs and improving the accuracy of future estimates. Turnarounds are resource intensive, and it is critical to optimize processes to gain the most value from these events, reducing the time the plant is offline. In this blog, we will look at what Plant Turnarounds are, and how benchmarking can help improve your efficiency, reduce costs, and cut down the time they take to increase production revenue.

Turnaround Best Practices
What is a Turnaround, anyway? The vehicle to change the competitive position of an asset and/or the restoration of lost asset capacity.
