Shutdown management is project management of a special kind: managing the repair, replacement or maintenance of critical systems. Manufacturing and process plants, computer systems, airliners, and many other systems must be regularly closed down or taken out of service for planned maintenance operations. This book provides a complete shutdown project planning guide along with a new, detailed model of excellence and step-by-step project guide. In a critical field, this book shows the maintenance manager or project leader how to get the job done correctly. It is perhaps an obvious statement to make that, given the complexity of the technology currently employed in the design and building of manufacturing plant, the limitations of the technology used to maintain it and the ever-increasing problem of its ageing, there will always be a need for maintenance work on the physical assets of the manufacturing activity. Furthermore, in an intensely competitive global market, characterized by increasing scales of production, the effective planning and management of that maintenance activity is coming to be seen as an ever more critical business process — one which is capable of differentiating the excellent performers from those who are merely capable, and from those who are less than capable. It is also the case that with large scale assets there will be maintenance work which can only be carried out when the plant has been taken off line, and made safe for the performance of such work which includes, but is not limited to, critical inspection, equipment overhaul, repairs and plant modification.
