Seminar Overview

As we are all being asked to do more with less, Operational Excellence provides a mechanism to help move beyond cost base reductions with a relentless pursuit of zero deviations, zero harm and zero incidents. IT Vizion would like to use this complementary seminar to share our experience in delivering effective Operational Excellence systems.

This seminar outlines,

  • The fundamentals of OE
  • How rapid incremental OE changes can be achieved
  • How to leverage existing systems of record and systems such as OSIsoft PI, Siemens XHQ and Vizion OE
  • How ISO 9001/APQC companies can apply OE to deliver process improvements
  • How technology assisted governance can improve daily operations and protect the license to operate

On this seminar, Dr. Mark presented some real-world examples showing how the combination of data, a proven OE system and a progressive mindset can help your business to thrive in the following areas, 

Deliver operational certainty

Reduce divergence, improve compliance and governance

Derive value add from existing systems of record

Achieve time-in-motion savings with intelligent automation of data wrangling

Highlight emerging operational risks and plan deviations

Metrics that offer decision support for profit, plant and people protection
