Operational Readiness

What’s your plan for Operational Readiness?

Capital expenditure projects make major impacts on companies, but achieving operational readiness is challenging. With over 64 percent of projects facing cost overruns and only 5.4 percent considered best in class, what steps are you taking to ensure success?*

GP Strategies understands the importance of being on time and on budget during a plant launch, and we’ve developed solutions that focus on improving results in key areas of every capital expenditure project that are critical to operational readiness success.

    Documentation Development

    The impact new processes and procedures have on human capital often take a back seat to considerations such as engineering, technical design and equipment selection. The result is fully functioning plant without a fully functioning front line.

    GP Strategies helps mitigate the risk of error and performance lapses via thorough documentation of SOPs, safety and maintenance procedures, technical documentation, equipment-specific procedures, quality processes, eLearning through GPiLEARN+, and more.

    Compliance & Regulatory

    Amidst the engineering, construction, design and equipment installation of your CapEx project, how intently focused are you on the regulatory compliance of your people and the safety of operations? Most organizations will go-live despite being ill prepared for these assurances. And, especially if their CapEx project is in a new country, they may find themselves fined before they even open for business.

    From environmental compliance to process safety and risk management, GP Strategies can align your organization with local regulatory practices around the world before you launch, mitigating costly risks.
