2021 State of Operations Summit

Cost: Free

When: April 1, 2021, 9:00 am - 11:00 am CST

Co-Presenter: OE Advisors

Overview:
In the year since the COVID-19 pandemic became a harsh reality, we have all adapted in many ways. Experts predict COVID will continue to affect us individually and as an industry well into 2022 and beyond. Of course, we cannot keep “waiting for the new normal” to move forward. As industry moves out of survival mode and forward into innovation and success mode, it’s time to think about the current state of industry and how to get to the next level of operational success. The 2021 State of Operations Summit will help you define your plan.

Research analysts tell us that 2021 will be all about risk management. Many companies have eliminated or stopped turnarounds, and pushed out PHA studies, inspections, and audits as part of their survival mode plan. While those hard choices might have been necessary in the moment, they are going to lead to:

  • Increased downtime
  • Demand variations leading to accelerated equipment degradation
  • Reduced maintenance of critical assets
  • Increased risk

Culture is the framework for how people embrace the procedures and data to make decisions. Are the people with the right training in the right place, doing the right work, in the right amount of time? How do you know in a COVID-19 reality? There has to be trust when we are dealing with remote operations and remote operations mean we must depend on the procedures and culture.

Companies need to acknowledge that non-essential personnel are now going to expect they can largely work remotely. This new workforce dynamic demands that we can work on our own since we cannot physically work together in teams. Remote, video conference meetings require more effort as attention spans are shorter, and meaningful can be more challenging. Can people really sit in a PHA study in a web-based meeting for 8 hours, or is 5 hours the max we can achieve? How are you evaluating your remote workforce? How do you train new staff when they can’t come to the plant? We need to be able to collaborate in new ways, which depends upon accurate, shared, timely data and information regardless of physical location. Your Operational Excellence (OE) strategy must account for the increased risk present due to COVID survival decisions in the industry and the changing dynamics of the workforce.

OE strategies tend to be long-term visions, but we also need short-term “tactical go-tos” that can push us through next 12 months – while still adhering to a longer term OE vision. Priorities now need to be more enacted in a tactical way, with shortened timelines and distinct ownership. Simple and clear are the words of the day… defined and clearly stated to be enacted as a next logical step. We cannot as an industry afford to spend another year in survival mode. This summit is designed to give you insight into the current state of the industry from an operations perspective and help you navigate the turbulent waters ahead.
