Asset Performance Networks is seeking sponsors for the “Benchmarking Field Labor Productivity” research study, part of the company’s joint Industry Benchmark Research Initiative

The recently launched (Asset Performance Networks) AP-Networks Benchmark Research Initiative gives Industry leaders a direct line to the AP-Networks Research, Benchmarking, and Predictive Analytics team. For the first time, owner companies have the unique opportunity to help guide the company’s research into solving challenging, impactful problems facing Industry.

Top performers in Industry recognize that continued improvement of turnaround planning and execution is critical to remaining competitive in the field. AP-Networks’ first research initiative, Benchmarking Field Labor Productivity, will help companies reduce turnaround costs and duration by better understanding the practices and factors that contribute to event productivity.

The main objectives for the research include:

  • Developing an Industry standard for quantifying the amount of work completed per labor hour paid
  • Quantifying labor productivity
  • Defining a set of key performance drivers and best practices
  • Developing a list of practice-specific norms to improve productivity
  • Helping Industry improve field labor productivity and turnaround performance
