Presentation abstract

​Turnaround (TAR) and maintenance disciplines in petro-chemicals have struggled to take the next step to combine BIG DATA and make data Smart.

Data is available in several systems and every sequence of the TAR the process of scoping, planning supplying starts from scratch each time. Working together as one team (owners and contractors) in one data source would be ideal. In preparation for the 2017 TAR a single IT environmental has been created allowing everyone has access to the data enabling them to work in an efficient and effective way, so we can better compete globally. The paper mountain is no longer needed as everyone using tablets or PDA with Wi-Fi can access cloud data such as real time progress, status reports and findings. The next TAR can use the history data and in this ideal world, the time needed to complete preparation could be downsized by 50%.
