Controlling Your Maintenance Turnaround Scope, from Kick-Off to Closeout

Controlling Your Maintenance Turnaround Scope, from Kick-Off to Closeout

In the November 2021 online edition of “The Chemical Engineer” magazine, Gordon discusses the need to keep turnaround scope to a manageable size and avoid excessive scope growth. He points out that although many teams focus on the valuable activity of challenging the scope (i.e. challenging whether individual scope items need to be included) just prior to scope freeze, in fact there are several other points during the planning and preparation phase when scope control measures can be implemented. These other points are often not as well addressed as the scope challenge. But those turnaround teams that do address them are setting themselves up to be in better control of their scope and hence better control of cost and schedule.

This article is the sixth and final article in a series of six from Gordon, published over the last 8 months in “The Chemical Engineer” on the topic of maintenance turnaround preparation and planning. To read the entire article CLICK HERE.
