Turnaround Planning with Outsourced Contractors

Moving to consistent processes and reporting

Written by Nicole Jardin

Client Overview

Large oil plant in Australia needed a more efficient way to develop their turnaround plans. This was typically being done by an outsourced engineering and contractor joint venture every 2 years. So each time different processes and team members were working with different methodologies.

Challenges

  • Struggling to build detailed schedules since they had to pull data from internal systems and contractor inputs and remap the data into standard template formats

  • Working with contractors during the turnaround providing updates in different ways

Results

  • Streamlined data imports by over 30%

  • Drastically reduced manual data entry by 50%

  • Improved standardized reporting during the planning stage and execution

  • Expanding P6-Loader’s use into other groups to improve the usage of P6
