Project and turnaround scheduling is an important function that has a direct and drastic impact on the cost of a project and therefore the profitability of an organization. Project and turnaround costs are the result of spending on manpower, tools and materials. Keep the use of manpower and equipment efficient and you keep your turnaround costs under control.

Perfact scheduling professionals combine years of experience to optimize organization by ensuring the shortest possible downtime and the most efficient use of resources and tools.

Once all work orders have been prepared and reviewed (approved), we are ready to create a schedule. If more work orders are created after the schedule has been created, we will process them in the schedule. This is a constant process, because extra work orders can be expected for repairs as a result of inspections. These also need to be scheduled.

We always strive to maintain the schedule as much as possible and to include all deviations. At the end of each shift, at least twice a day, we update everything to be able to react adequately or deviations and advise on the decisions to be taken.

An important tool used by us when planning a project is the PERT-diagram (network diagram). A PERT-diagram shows the interdependencies between tasks. It makes it possible to analyze which tasks can be performed simultaneously by different people. “PERT” stands for Program Evaluation Review Technique. A technique designed by the United States Department of Defense in the 1960s as a management technique for complex military projects.  Using PERT diagrams, projects are ‘modelled’ in the form of a network of activities and events (‘activity diagram’).  The activities in a project are represented by arrows. The nodes represent the different evaluation points. A PERT diagram consists of nodes connected by arrows. The nodes represent the different tasks, while the arrows indicate the relationships. The diagram gives a good insight in the interdependence of the different tasks. A PERT diagram focuses attention on the activities and the interdependencies between these activities, but says nothing about the other aspects that are important for project planning (Who does what? Required capacity? Output of an activity?).

Our scheduling professionals work software independent. We can make use of the software already available at our clients as well as provide our own software. Tools in which we have experience: Maintasc, Roser, Primavera, Prometheus, MsProject.
