Users of AP-Networks’ online Turnaround Network portal can now receive performance benchmarks in real time.
Bethesda, MD, October 13, 2017 – Asset Performance Networks (AP-Networks) has released a major update to the Turnaround Network (TAN) that adds real-time benchmarking capability to the industry-renowned software suite. Users can now input information on the scope of a particular turnaround directly into TAN, and the system will return a series of benchmarks comparing costs, labor hours, and peak labor against industry. The benchmarks are calculated using the AP-Networks Turnaround Database, which contains observations from more than 1,650 turnarounds, along with statistical models that normalize for turnaround complexity, scope, and location. Licensed TAN users looking to activate this feature at their site should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“TAN is the only system that provides these benchmarks,” says Nathan Centofanti, Manager of Benchmarking and Data Services at AP-Networks. “This is the first step in providing increasingly more detailed benchmarks for turnarounds. These benchmarks can be used for checking estimates and ensuring targets are achievable.”
The Turnaround Network, found at www.Turnaround-Network.com, is the world’s most innovative software toolset for turnaround planning and execution. The web-based portal is home to proprietary AP-Networks software tools that have become a standard part of how Fortune Global 100 energy and petrochemical companies plan and execute turnarounds. The ever-evolving toolset places the unrivaled turnaround expertise of AP-Networks on the desktop of every turnaround professional across the enterprise.
