Cost Benchmarking: Reducing Cost and Complexity in your Operations. 1:15p.m.-3:15p.m.
Much of the value created by the refining and petrochemicals industry over the past decade has been soaked up by complexity and inefficiency. Increased regulation, inattention to costs, depletion of easy-to-exploit resources and a talent shortage have dealt a fundamental blow to industry profits—a blow that is now magnified with low oil prices.
This workshop will give you the opportunity to identify the key levers for driving out cost and complexity in your operations. Learn how you can fight back by participating in group discussions – we’ll examine 5 key levers for drive out cost and complexity in your operations now including:
- Optimising Headcount and Talent
- Improving Workforce Efficiency
- Standardizing Technologies
- Enhancing Supply Chain Collaboration
- Optimising Maintenance
When used correctly the above levers can deliver sizable improvements to efficiency, agility and, ultimately, financial performance.
