Schedule Details Monday, June 2 — Conference Day 110:10 - 11:10 MondayTRACK 1Are We There Yet? Tools & Techniques to Assessyour Plant’s Shutdown ReadinessPresenters: Dan Sawyer & Dan Norrad,Ontario Power GenerationIntermediatePlanning for a shutdown requires much time and effort. But how do you knowif you’re ready? Will your best be good enough? Are there ways of getting anobjective overview of your state of readiness rather than relying on bold assurancesfrom those who always see the glass as ‘half-full’? This presentation willprovide you with practical techniques that are currently being used in someof best performing utilities of North America. You will learn how to developa shutdown assessment plan that provides solid feedback on deficiencies,strengths and recommendations to allow your site to develop the necessaryactions, owners and timelines to address issues before they become problems.Lessons:• Eight key components to all successful projects• Building blocks that make a strong foundation• Tricks of the trade to match scope, cost and duration• Manage your project from start to finish - pre-outage performance indicators• Planning for failure, not success• Taking full advantage of lessons learned• Proven methods for determining schedule readinessand thermography scans confirming potential equipment problems. Operationsshould provide a comprehensive list of all confirmed process unit shutdowntypebacklog work orders. This presentation will also discuss tools and methodologiesused to control scope growth prior to the turnaround start date.Lessons:• Scope development• Scope control• Scope timelines2:30 - 3:30 MondayTurnaround Work Package DevelopmentPresenter: Don Turner, Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc.IntermediateIn reviewing over 300 turnarounds, each with different results from verysuccessful to not so successful and even including disastrous turnarounds, itwas found that the level of planning and work package preparation directlycorrelated to the level of success. From this presentation you will developan understanding of the turnaround activity and work package essentialsrequired for successfully executing turnarounds. How to track and report workpackage development will be discussed and an example tracking method willbe explained. Join Don to learn how building a turnaround master schedulebased on crews and assembling the activities and tasks into comprehensiveturnaround execution plans, assures success.Lessons:• Turnaround activity and work package essentials• Tracking work package status• Assembling supervisor execution plans11:20 - 12:20 MondayOutage Performance — There is no Silver BulletPresenter: Dick Miller, Bechtel Power CorporationExpertThis presentation will focus on many of the tools and methods that differentorganizations use to plan and execute their shutdowns and outages. Thepoint will be made that there is no single plan, there is no single process, thereis no single group of people, nor is there a single silver bullet that will ensuresuccessful outage performance. To the contrary, this presentation will illustratethat acceptable outage performance begins with detailed planning anddevelopment of crystal clear organizational responsibilities. Various methodsfor establishing outage expectations and goals will be covered, along with thevalue of teamwork and clear communications. Successful methods for scheduledevelopment, action item list development, and risk mitigation will bepresented. This presentation will cover the roles and responsibilities of ownersand contractors, along with a process to identify and engage outage stakeholders.Above all else, this presentation will make it apparent that there cannever be too much detail when an outage is planned and executed.Lessons:• Good outage performance requires dedicated outage personnel• Several tools not universally used in outage planning willbe demonstrated1:20 - 2:20 MondayTurnaround Scope Development & ControlPresenters: Ron Kooy, Valero Energy Corporation& Gregory Alvarado, The Equity Engineering GroupIntermediateThis presentation will cover the timeline, development and control ofcomprehensive turnaround work scopes with emphasis on a total team approach.Ron will review a standard Milestone Chart with suggested timelines associatedwith month-out requirements to meet planning and scheduling goals. Developmentof work scopes include the review and relevance of American PetroleumInstitute requirement API 510, equipment history and various InspectionDepartment surveys which drive the mechanical integrity side of the workscope. The other side of work scope development involves receiving informationfrom the Process Engineering and Operation Departments. Information requiredfrom Process should include heat transfer coefficient charts, single-gauge surveys10:10 - 11:10 MondaySTO Planning/Organization/Best PracticesPresenter: James Walton, BASF CorporationBeginnerDetails coming soon.11:20 - 12:20 MondayShutdown Safety — What’s the Big Deal?Presenter: Vaughn Bend, TransAltaIntermediateShutdown safety: is it a big deal or not? In a period of ever increasing stringentregulations, cost, schedule and labor pressures lining up to make yourshutdown a near impossible mission, how do you accurately evaluate yoursafety risk and plan your way to executing a safe shutdown. Excellent safetyprograms and performance virtually ensure that you will meet all yourshutdown targets and more importantly send everybody home healthy andhappy!! During this presentation, Vaughn will detail how TransAlta hasdeveloped a proactive shutdown safety program over the last 3 years.Lessons:Learn how the following elements are critical to ensuring safety successduring the shutdown:• Planning• Contractor management• Performance expectations• Hazard identification & mitigation• Orientation & training• Leadership & supervision• Lagging & leading indicators• Incident investigations & audits• Communication• Continuous improvementTRACK 26


Workshops1workshopWednesday, June 4 TIME: 7:30 am - 4:00 pm COST: $795Includes: Breakfast (7:30 am - 8:00 am), Break (10:00 am - 10:20 am), and Lunch (12:00 pm - 1:15 pm)Choose from these highly relevant conference workshops, available to conference attendeesonly. All workshops are optional and separately bookable. Space is limited, so book early!Using Maintenance Performance Indicators to Improve STO PerformancePresenter: Terry Wireman, Vesta PartnersThis workshop will discuss maintenance and reliability performance indicators and how they impact STO indicators. The focus willbe on improving the financial performance of the STO process. The workshop will examine two major areas: the proper utilizationof resources and the compression of the shutdown-turnaround activities to increase asset availability. The financial impact ofmaking improvements in these two aspects of shutdown-turnarounds will also be highlighted.This workshop begins with a review of the financial impact of maintenance and reliability strategies. It then reviewsfundamental maintenance processes that must be in place for conducting successful STO’s. It will also include basicperformance indicators for the STO and how they can be linked to existing performance indicators for asset utilization.2workshop3workshopThe Crane GamePresenters: Mike Gehloff & Ken Arthur, General Physics CorporationThe Crane Game is an exciting, interactive 8-hour simulation that provides participants opportunities to apply learned skills andknowledge and to experience the benefits of planning and scheduling firsthand. Teams compete against each other in planning forand executing an outage while facing many of the typical problems seen on any given day: safety hazards/environmental issues;addressing risk; incomplete work orders; work prioritization; scheduling conflicts; personnel issues; materials issues; work qualityissues; add-on work and deferred work. Each team is given identical work orders, spare parts and their own overhead crane. TheCrane Game is won by the team that safely completes the largest amount of work during their outage. Applying lessons learnedduring the educational portion make the teams more efficient and increases their chances of winning.Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to understand and apply best practices for managing an outage to include:• Identification and prioritization of work • Assessing risks and developing action plans• Allocation of resources• Managing and reacting to required schedule changes• Establishing an outage organization • Explain the process for planning and tracking complex down-day and outage eventsAvoid the Shutdown — A Holistic Approach to Managing Plant ReliabilityPresenter: Drew Troyer, Reliable Plant MagazineFor senior managers, the best shutdown is no shutdown. While completely eliminating the shutdown isn’t feasible, by employingprogressive reliability engineering and management techniques, we can significantly extend the time between and duration ofscheduled shutdowns and outages. Plant reliability is much more than maintenance. It requires a cross-functional effort from thedesign, operations and maintenance functions within the organization.In this workshop, you’ll learn:• How a holistic approach to managing plant reliability will drive bottom line performance, including return on net assets(RONA) and share price• Reliability engineering tools and techniques the plant engineer needs to know — without all the unnecessary complexity• How to quantify maintenance decisions in economic terms — including innovative ways to optimize shutdown decisions• How to manage design, operations and maintenance activities to reduce the effects of time on plant equipment assets4workshopSuccessfully Integrating Capital Projects with TurnaroundsPresenter: Bobby Singh, Project AssuranceRecent results from turnarounds that have been tied to capital projects have been less than encouraging. The turnarounds havesuffered with cost overruns and schedule slippages due to late engineered work scope packages, area conflicts and resource shortages.This workshop is designed to address chronic conflicts that have traditionally impaired turnaround performance. This hands-on fullday session will offer pragmatic solutions to bring these two conflicting groups together to jointly develop work scope target dates,high performance contracting approaches and integrated plans.In addition, Bobby will outline synergistic solutions that will create a productive work environment and lead to pacesetter resultsfor both capital projects and plant turnarounds.10
