How Effective Is Your STO Strategy?
Presenter(s): Steve Carr, Joel Levitt
Shutdowns, turnarounds and outages are complex, high-cost undertakings that have impacts across the entire business, from shareholders and board members to front-line maintenance workers. When not well-planned and managed, STOs can create safety risks, unplanned downtime, and cost overruns, resulting in reduced profitability if the organization is not able to return on schedule to full operating capacity.

How to Rearrange Your Plant in 3D
Presenter(s): Vernon Jensen, Steve Schuchard
In plant rearrangement, as in other technical work, the devil is always in the details. But the time and expense to produce a detailed plant layout is often out of reach for maintenance management. Frequently, the result is poorly planned rearrangements that leave tradespeople standing around while engineers and managers try to figure ways around details that were missed or ignored when the move was planned. Join this webinar for a presentation of real-world case studies about the use of 3D laser mapping to provide current and proposed plant layouts.
