Jobpack development

Based on our in-house built software SD.Man, smart Jobpacks are a comprehensive solution that seamlessly link all aspects of your project, including the schedule, execution, material consumption, contractor calendars, HSE risks, work orders, and asset register. This integrated approach ensures that all elements of the project are connected and coordinated, resulting in streamlined processes and reduced risk of errors. Our extensive knowledge base, which is driven by years of experience, provides prescriptions for project durations and risk management, helping to ensure that your project is completed on time and within budget.

Shutdown scheduling

We use Resource Limited Scheduling during the scheduling phase and for
rescheduling during execution.
The RLS scheduling algorithm of SD.Man is purpose-built to optimize resource utilization and minimize lost time due to interferences between activities. Our advanced algorithm can handle unexpected changes during project execution, allowing for real-time rescheduling to maintain optimal project flow. With our scheduling algorithm, you can be confident that your resources are being utilized to their fullest potential, and that the shutdown is being executed as efficiently as possible.

Execution Monitoring

Based on SDman, we assist your team to achieve effective shutdown management, and our team is dedicated to ensuring that your project runs smoothly from start to finish. Our team closely monitors the progress of the shutdown, updating the schedule accordingly and providing daily work plans for upcoming shifts. We monitor the availability of spare parts prior to the shutdown and their usage during execution. With our proactive approach, we can quickly identify any issues that may arise and take action to address them before they become major problems. This level of attention to detail helps to ensure that your shutdown is completed on time and within budget.

Evaluation and Lessons learned

Recording issues as they arise is an essential part of the shutdown management process. By documenting issues on an ongoing basis, it is possible to perform a detailed analysis of lessons learned, which can then be incorporated into the planning of future shutdowns. This approach allows for a continuous improvement cycle, where each shutdown builds upon the successes and challenges of previous projects. By leveraging these insights, it is possible to optimize the planning and execution of future shutdowns, leading to improved efficiency and reduced downtime.
