Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage (STO) Management is a multi-disciplinary specialist field for most asset intensive businesses. A significant portion of the maintenance cost of an asset is typically spent during these STO events that have a direct impact on both production capacity and the cash flow of the business. These events need to be carefully planned and scheduled in advance to ensure all client requirements and expectations are met.
Shutdowns further involve a significantly higher number of resources and more complex activities which introduce a higher level of risk to the business. This increased level of risk requires an increase in management focus and effort to ensure risks are well managed and the full scope of the STO event is completed within the allocated time and cost constraints.
Pragma’s practical 2-day Shutdown and Outage Management course introduces and explores the necessary processes and techniques required to effectively and efficiency control and manage the STO events of asset intensive businesses. This training course is aligned with the GFMAM’s 39 Subjects with a specific focus on the following subjects: shutdown and outage strategy, shutdown and outage management.
