Chemical Engineering

Process Plant Start Up, Commissioning and Troubleshooting

Introduction

There is an alarming trend in the industry to discount the potential contribution of the Technical Operations function to productivity improvement, product quality and gains in market share. Principles taught in this training session will help you to understand the true nature and different techniques of problem-solving and problem prevention in the operational process environment.

Both modules are delivered by leading experts who provide innovative and interesting training sessions. Participants will have access to the latest research in Maintenance Management which forms the basis of the course.

Excellent Troubleshooting skills are considered a core competency for Best-in-Class industrial companies. If your company’s goals include minimizing downtime then this workshop is a must because it delivers rapid, safe Troubleshooting. 


Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will learn:

  • How to become a Top Gun Troubleshooter by acquiring new skills
  • To develop a structured approach to Troubleshooting and Problem Solving this uses common terminology and shared understanding
  • To point the way to Continuous Improvement in the way you run your processes and make incremental efficiency gains
  • To understand the difference between having techniques manual on the bookshelf and actually making it work
  • To identify motivated people who should be the champions of Troubleshooting and Problem Solving and who should just follow
  • To understand work practices that allow success in Troubleshooting and Problem Solving through reducing the variability of your process?

Target Audience
  • This course is directed at those Supervisors who are involved in the operations function and who are responsible for leading and directing people to achieve and improve productivity levels
  • Those faced with the challenge of actually using the various techniques of Troubleshooting and Problem Solving to reduce downtime and waste and improve run efficiencies will benefit
  • The course elements are of equal importance to Production, Maintenance Engineering and Process Engineering personnel
