CS Operational Readiness for New Scrubber

Operational Readiness

Prepare to launch on time and within budget

With over 64 percent of CapEx projects facing cost overruns, and less than six percent considered best in class, operational readiness can make the difference between strategic success and costly failure.

GP Strategies  understands the importance of being on time and on budget during a plant launch.  Drawing upon years of helping organizations plan, prepare and implement successful launches, we’ve developed effective operational readiness solutions in all areas of capital expenditure projects.

Amidst the engineering, construction, design and equipment installation of your CapEx project, attention to regulatory compliance and operational safety can get overlooked. Going live while ill-prepared for these assurances can result in hefty fines, especially with CapEx projects in a new country. From environmental compliance to process safety and risk management, we make sure your organization aligns with local regulatory practices before you launch.

The impact new processes and procedures have on human capital often takes a back seat to engineering, technical design, equipment selection and other considerations. Our thorough documentation of SOPs, safety and maintenance procedures, technical documentation, equipment-specific procedures, quality processes, and eLearning through GPiLEARN+ help mitigate the risk of error and performance lapses.
