Pour la première fois en Europe:
Shutdown & Outage: training, workshop & simulation
17, 18 & 19 January 2012 - Antwerp
Now, more than ever, your maintenance team is expected to increase effectiveness and performance with fewer members. This isn't a momentary staff crisis. It's the reality of doing business in a new economy. But there's a solution.
With effective planning and scheduling, 30 maintenance technicians can yield the effect of 47. And, thousands of staff hours can be harvested from non-value-added activities.
Play the game
Outage! The planning and scheduling experience from GPAllied is a unique, interactive simulation game that replicates a real maintenance outage with the typical problems of
quality control concerns
The game is entertaining, yet it drives foundational concepts and meaningful approach strategies, and it reinforces planning and scheduling concepts and best practices.
Outage! is a profound learning experience that provides the skills and understanding your maintenance team needs to:
drive new improvements and behavioral changes
reinvigorate your planning and scheduling processes
understand the value of planning and scheduling
build respect and teamwork throughout your maintenance department
streamline workflow to produce more time for critical needs
During two preparation days, the different teams are given engaging instructions and team building exercises designed to reinforce maintenance planning and scheduling best practices. Critical lessens that are learned are:
the importance of work identification and scope control
critical path management and resource leveling
quality control and assurance of parts and work results
the need for clarity and accuracy on work orders
the importance of standards
Following an early morning readiness check on the final day, each team begins the countdown. Simulating a live shutdown, Outage! pits team against team as they integrate work orders, parts, contractors, risks and emergencies within tight time constraints. Parts must be verified, kitted and staged. Nothing can be left to chance or costly consequences can occur, such as lengthy delays, re-work, downtime and overtime. The first team to complete the shutdown wins the Outage! game.
Outage! Reinforces critical lessons and best practices, and emphasizes teamwork for profound results.
Effective planning will:
But planners can't do the job on their own. In a world-class environment, the entire maintenance organization-production, maintenance workers, supervisors, contractors, spare parts - contributes to the effectiveness of planning and scheduling
