A CASE IN POINT

Digitally Managed Turnaround with Mobile Devices

Planned refinery shutdowns are unavoidable to carry out legally required inspections and necessary repairs at regular intervals. They involve complex, cost-intensive measures that encompass various process steps. Essential for the success of a plant shutdown is excellent planning and coordination of the work to be done. As in many other areas, digitization initiatives promise optimized processes and thus reduced costs and time savings. However, selecting the right technologies and their implementation is often still a challenge for most companies.

Why Precision Maintenance Requires a Culture Shift

The root causes of production equipment failures often come down to the small details. Details that are typically neglected when precision maintenance is not integrated into maintenance. While focusing on these details may seem like quick and easy shifts to make in the work process, it requires a larger culture shift within the business, from the top-down and from the bottom-up.

Providing a Clear Path for Digital Transformation

Presently, profound digital transformations are happening behind the scenes of most asset-intensive production sites who are trying to increase efficiency gains and advance their value chain. However, even with the necessary technology installed and the goals in sight, the path to achieving success through digitalization is not always clear. Most often, the issues aren’t with the technology itself, but rather, the people. Implementing isolated digital initiatives will not lead to the sought-after results without the industrial leaders defining, leading, and communicating the transformation project.
