Additional Information

Event Summary 22nd & 23rd February 2006, Hilton Dubai Jumeriah, UAE Industries in the primary and secondary sectors deal with heavy-duty equipment and machinery in their production cycle that go through intensive running operation. Imagine a breakdown or a leakage caused during a production stage, it would cause a system failure and eventually an improper shutdown. To avoid such a catastrophe, often precautions are taken by either shutting down the whole plant or stage-by-stage for inspection to making necessary repairs and required maintenance. A shutdown may be done annually or bi-annually for a month or even sometimes for 2-3 months. Such an overhaul process involves complex structures and need special attention; managing such an operation may endanger the facility as a whole because its shutdown may end up creating a loss. Or in the other hand, a successful shutdown for inspection and maintenance increases the plant’s reliability and ensures a smooth operation, thus reducing the chance of breakdowns. So the question is, how can industrialists reduce the cost and duration of a shutdown while optimizing production and generating revenue? What are the latest technologies integrated in this process to ease the burden of daily maintenance? If one chooses to outsource should one outsource the whole shutdown or just hire specialists in the related fields? A shutdown may even involve 64,000 personnel, so how would the management processes be communicated and proactively issued? What safety protocols should be issued and to what standards? Then there are conflicting school of thoughts; RCM vs. TPM. Questions storm down in this industry but what practitioners are looking for a fine light of answer, something that is shared under the clear horizon. Hence, there is an increasing need to incorporate the disciplines and technologies of project management systems and solutions in order to streamline operations and leverage technological knowledge, to upgrade competency and efficiency.
