Marshall Institute, Inc. has released a new training course titled Shutdown, Turnaround, and Outage Optimization.

Whether you call them shutdowns, turnarounds, or outages, the point is that you are extensively and invasively maintaining and repairing a line, system, unit, or even a plant. This is a resource and capital intensive project that can not only make or break your annual maintenance budget, but it can massively impact production targets.

For the first time, Marshall Institute is sharing the roadmap for STO success in a public seminar, to help plant teams eliminate scope creep, and avoid the "me too" jobs that affect timeline and budget.

This seminar is designed for the key roles in STO: managers, planners, schedulers, area coordinators, inspection, maintenance, supply chain, and anyone looking for education, guidance, and improvement. Be prepared to get hands on as this 3-day event has been carefully developed to maximize individual and group interaction and engagement. Marshall Institute is offering two public seminars in their 2018 schedule:

  • August 7-9, 2018 in Houston, TX
  • October 23-25, 2018 in Houston, TX

To guarantee your seat, register online at or by calling (919) 834-3722. Register your team and save with the available multi-seat discounts. Similar to all of Marshall Institute's public training, the STO seminar can be delivered at your site privately for your team.
