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 […]

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 […]

STO GPS

STO GPS (Guaranteed Project Success) ensures you arrive at your desired destination in the shortest time. How you DRIVE, however, will determine your safety, reliability and cost results. Navigating has never been easier, safer, more reliable and efficient since the introduction of GPS (Global Positioning Satellites), Google Maps, iPhones and STO Navigator Inc.—for guaranteed project […]

STO Scheduling Secrets

If you are responsible for scheduling shutdowns, turnarounds or outagesi, regardless of which scheduling software you employ, you’re going to need some STO scheduling secrets. Why? Unlike an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) projects, which generally produce Level III (static, often un-resourced) Project Plans, STO’s require Level IV and Level V (dynamic, resourced) Project Plans. […]

Applying Productivity Factors for STO events

PF (Productivity Factors) The measure of performance (the result of direct effort expended) related to direct tool-time on a STO event is determined by a formula of earned (%) against planned (e) and actual ($). By using PF (Productivity Factors) during DSM (Dynamic Scheduling Methodology) you can simulate performance—using ‘what-if’ scenarios in programs such as […]
