Performance Management for the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries: A Systems Approach is a practical guide on the business cycle and techniques to undertake step, episodic, and breakthrough improvement in performance to optimize operating costs. Like many industries, the oil, gas, and process industries are coming under increasing pressure to cut costs due to ongoing construction of larger, more integrated units, as well as the application of increasingly stringent environmental policies. Focusing on the ‘value adder’ or ‘revenue generator’ core system and the company direction statement, this book describes a systems approach which assures significant sustainable improvements in the business and operational performance specific to the oil, gas, and process industries. The book will enable the reader to: utilize best practice principles of good governance for long term performance enhancement; identify the most significant performance indicators for overall business improvement; apply strategies to ensure that targets are met in agreed upon time frames. Describes a systems approach which assures significant sustainable improvements in the business and operational performance specific to the oil, gas, and process industries Helps readers set appropriate and realistic short-term/ long-term targets with a pre-built facility health checker Elucidates the relationship between PSM, OHS, and Asset Integrity with an increased emphasis on behavior-based safety Discusses specific oil and gas industry issues and examples such as refinery and gas plant performance initiatives and hydrocarbon accounting

Markus Hammer investigates a time-based and analytics-supported operations management approach. He explores five perspectives: 1) the needs of industry, in particular manufacturing in process industries, 2) the impact of digitization, with focus on Big Data and analytics, 3) the management of operations through time-based performance metrics, 4) how operations improvement methods and advanced process control help achieve resource-productive operations and 5) learning from practice based on two empirical case studies. The author conceives, explains, and tests an implementation methodology. The final case study proves that

Common scale-up methods are conventional where the blind piloting is essential. This imposes huge investment and leads to failures mostly in solid processing. However, the limitations of resources, current shortcomings, short time-to-market demand are forced companies to minimize piloting. With these situations in mind, current digitalization outlook and computational facilities, we proposed and developed a novel iterative scale up method with case studies which highly expedites the process innovation through the following key sequences:
