Abstract

Renovation and revamp projects are ubiquitous in the construction industry. Shutdowns/turnarounds/outages (STO) are a subset of renovation and revamp projects in the industrial sector. These events typically occur when planned disruptions to normal use or operation of a manufacturing facility take place to facilitate maintenance, enhancements, or tie-ins. It is common to have several construction projects executed during an STO and the integration of the activities is often problematic. Little research has been performed studying the integration of these multiple projects, work-scopes and maintenance activities into a single STO. Based on a Construction Industry Institute research study, this paper will provide a discussion of STOs, including unique challenges, describe a new tool/management approach developed to aid industry professionals in planning and coordinating the multiple projects within an STO, and provide guidance to practitioners.
