Methodology – STOcm®
STONAVIGATOR CM® (Connected Methods)
A methodology is defined as a solution to a challenge, with specific phases, best-practice procedures, techniques and tools. Its foundations lay across a business process where inter-connected activities are scheduled, resourced and controlled to produce a service or product when needed.
To manage and control Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages a formal process must be followed.
STONAVIGATOR CM™(Connected Methods) provides this roadmap, if you will, of defined activities, polices, best-practice procedures, checklists and tools designed to effectively and efficiently navigate each phase of your STO Project (Strategy, Planning & Scheduling, Execution, and Closure).
Knowing where you are, where you’re going, and how you’re going to get there is the key to navigating and controlling all aspects of your STO Project. The challenge of navigating a STO Project is solved with a formal process, which guides its users through complex risk/cost benefit analysis, strategic and detailed planning, and dynamic scheduling to effectively reduce scope, while increasing efficiency (worker wrench-time) to reduce risk, cost and schedule duration.
This is what STONAVIGATOR CM™ provides. The STONAVIGATOR™ connected methods have been derived from over a hundred person years’ of experience; from experts who have delivered some of the most complex shutdowns and turnarounds around the world in a safe and efficient manner.
When supported by STOworks™ Technology and managed by competent people (see STO Academy), the results for your STO project will be nothing short of amazing.
