P6 Workarounds for STO

If you’re using Primavera P6 software for scheduling STO (Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage) activities you are not alone. Thousands of Planner/Schedulers rely on P6 to enhance execution performance.

The Project […]

Earned-value Performance

Earned-value Performance establishes the direction and speed of your STO event, displayed on dashboard indicators. Employing DSM (Dynamic Scheduling Methodology) to drive your STO event (the steering wheel versus the rear-view mirror) you can learn to navigate your STO event with effective strategies and efficient plans, using Earned-value Performance to measure CPI (Cost Performance Index), SPI (Scheduling Performance Index), and S-curve Planned/Actual/Earned performance. Planned-value = Estimate Earned-value = % Complete versus Planned Actual-value = $ to Complete versus […]

Primavera for STO

Primavera for STO (Shutdowns, Turnarounds, Outages) highlights the practices needed to DRIVE your STO project. Primavera™ P6 was not designed for STO projects, but that won’t stop you from learning how to use it to drive your STO project. This is what you will learn: traditional scheduling vs. scheduling for STO projects (Level I to Level V) how to create a true WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) how to phase your STO project, e.g., Pre, Shutdown, […]
