Outages are planned shutdowns of plants for maintenance, including preventative maintenance and defects. Preventative maintenance works have pre-defined scope, a job plan and resource requirements built into a maintenance management system. The problematic area is corrective maintenance scope (i.e., defects). Defects often result in significant increase in outage scope, known as scope creep. Scope creep is a serious challenge that outage managers, outage engineers and planners face before and during an outage. In order for us to manage it, it is necessary to understand what scope creep is—and what its causes are. If the root causes are taken care of, the problem will be solved by itself! The webinar will discuss this in detail based on practical experience and will be followed by Q&A.
