Operational Turnaround Of Existing Plants
Operational Turnaround Of Existing Plants (OTOEP)
Certain issues can’t be solved while the plant is still up and running. It requires a full shutdown to handle, almost a clearing house. This is when you do long overdue tasks like repiping, improving ventilation or total equipment overhauls. These can also be mandated by regulations. You might need to overhaul systems to keep up with compliance, like safety prevention.
In this time, certain operational issues are handled: equipment preventative maintenance and care, corrective repairs, strip-downs and overhauls, etc. This can range from days to weeks, but is far shorter than plant turnaround.
“Plant turnaround and plant maintenance have similar intentions but very different execution. It’s important to know the difference.”
Plant turnaround is much larger in scope, and can take months or even years to complete. Speed is of the essence: the longer your operations are down, the more you lose in terms of money and production.
Plant maintenance, certain operational issues are handled: equipment preventative maintenance and care, corrective repairs, strip-downs and overhauls, etc. This can range from days to weeks, but is far shorter than plant turnaround.
Plant turnarounds generally have goals set in place. Different maintenance KPI benchmarks are used when it comes to measuring the success of a turnaround. Sometimes it’s regulating the budget, schedules, time to get back to full-speed production, etc.
Maintenance is much more straightforward. Sometimes it can just come in the form of periodic testing. The more organized and optimized plants will schedule maintenance regularly
Ideas are Easy, Implementation Is Hard
Sofocol start-up assistance is designed especially keeping in mind the first time investor who has a zeal to stand-out in the crowded texttile manufacturing industry and is bold enough not to tread the beaten path. texttile manufacturing is an attractive investment opportunity, but several factories get trapped in the vicious cycle of mediocrity even after having the right product mix and buyer linkage. Our industry experience has helped us realize that there are some most common mistakes that an investor makes while establishing and operating a garment factory. Our multiple successful projects and global exposure helps the investor avoid these mistakes, quickly move up the learning curve and establish an engineered garment factory.
Old ways won't open new doors
Sofocol helps the investors look upon products factories as engineering firms that are in business of assembling (fabric) parts to make a finished product viz. garment or made-ups. Sofocol engineered products factories are competitive, compliant and credible set-ups, established on 4 pillars, that can be relied upon every single time for quality, price and delivery commitments.
Excellent firms don't believe in excellence - only in constant improvement and constant change
Sofocol start-up and re-engineering services are modular in nature and could be scaled down into service modules that tune-up your product factory and give it the specific advantage needed. Our tailored modules are suitable for factories regardless of size, location or product.
