Whitepaper: Strategic Asset Management in a volatile world
Asset Management has to contribute at all times to the business strategy and objectives. But what is the impact on Asset Management if a business goes through unexpected change?
Shutdown scope management is an important area when it comes to minimizing the total life span costs of industrial installations. The scope of a shutdown includes all work to be carried out during the shutdown.
Scope management focuses on the strategic aspects that span multiple shutdowns, rather than on the preparation, implementation and evaluation of a single shutdown.
This book provides an overview of shutdown process steps, influencing factors, such as company policy, technological innovation, societal trends and market developments - and the strategies with which shutdowns can potentially achieve cost optimization in the longer term.
The contents of this book are based on research of the literature, as well as the input of project partners Akzo-Nobel, Bosch-Rexroth, Essent, Gasunie, NedTrain, Stork and the University of Twente.
