Discover key management decision support tool allowing performance optimization, process debottlenecking, bechmaking of performance, and mitigation of unforeseen risks.

Are you in the downstream business and struggling to select the reliability improvement project that would yield the highest return on investment? Do you feel that your decision has been mostly subjective and lacking a high level of confidence? Are you sacrificing short-term wins because you cannot turn around the analytics quickly enough?

In DNV GL’s work processes, methodologies incorporating cutting edge technology have been developed in order to measure risk and optimize performance. One of these methodologies that will be presented in this webinar is the application of a simplified and fast-tracked version of reliability, availability, and maintainability (RAM) to provide a quantitative assessment of the level of performance that may be expected from any proposed improvement initiative. DNV GL will use TARO software to execute the proposed methodology.

In this webinar our experts will walk through a case study where we will show how to: 

  • Compare the as-is performance to the future performance (post improvement project) by evaluating the availability and utilization of all the production-critical units and their impact on production
  • Identify which reliability improvement projects have the highest confidence in achieving a positive net present value
  • Perform tank management optimization to quantify how performance can be improved
  • Improve stakeholder confidence in the selection of reliability improvement projects to ensure maximum return on investment.
