“Managing IOWs Through Integrity Analytics”
Date: Thursday, February 28, 2019
Time: 10:50am-11:25pm
Room: 305
An effective IOW program can provide less downtime, optimized inspection costs, and a more assured asset lifecycle.  Many refining, gas processing, and petrochemical plants have already identified the need to define IOWs, but are still unsure how to extract the most value from them. In order to achieve the benefits associated with IOWs, they must be implemented and managed appropriately. In this presentation, we will enable you to implement and manage IOWs with confidence through a concise and practical approach.

“The Value of Lean in Asset Integrity Management”
Date: Thursday, February 28, 2019
Time: 11:30am-12:05pm
Room: 305
Achieving high levels of Asset Integrity Management program effectiveness, while continually driving sustainable efficiency gains, presents a complex challenge for organizations throughout the Oil & Gas industry. Long term success of improvement efforts depends on the support of key stakeholders that expect tangible value addition to the program. Without a structured method in place for identifying waste and implementing improvements, verifying efficiency gains and justifying further investment is difficult.

Lean principles focus on providing a simple, yet systematic, approach to streamlining and sustaining process performance without sacrificing program effectiveness. This presentation will explore common challenges and pitfalls that organizations experience when attempting to increase program performance and will demonstrate how Lean techniques drive realized cost savings, more effective processes, and increased confidence in the program.
