  • 2. Dear Colleague Turnarounds are often the most expensive and time consuming technical projects industries face, due to loss of production and the immense expense of a turnaround itself. Each day a plant is shut down, a company can lose millions of dollars. As a result, companies are continuously searching for new, cost effective ways to improve their shutdown and turnaround processes. We are pleased to offer a unique turnaround training simulation to help you save time and reduce the costs of your next shutdown and turnaround project. TARfighter – An Interactive Shutdown and Turnaround Project Simulation If you are interested in running a simulation inhouse please contact: James Haggan at j.haggan@tacook.com PLUS: Join your peers and our expert turnaround faculty for a networking evening event. July 1-3, 2013 · Dubai, UAE November 4-6, 2013 · Birmingham, UK November 19-21, 2013 · Amsterdam, The Netherlands November 25-27, 2013 · Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia The TARfighter turnaround project simulation provides real life scenarios to teach specific methods of practice and leadingedge techniques to manage shutdowns and turn­ rounds. a The simulation takes you through the critical phases of a shutdown/turnaround project. Participants will be challenged to manage typical events and conflicts, while making decisions to meet all objectives of a critical turn­ round project. Take a on the “project manager” role without the inherent risk and pressure of a real life turnaround. Attendees are split into small groups, assisted by our expert facilitators, where they go through five stages that encompass the phases of a turnaround project. »» Intervention – building your team to challenge a critical shutdown »» Scoping – optimize turnaround scope and define pre/ post turnaround activities »» Detail Planning – creating turnaround quality assurance and control plans »» Execution – productively managing turnaround (meetings, safety, control of work) »» Project Evaluation – analyze and assess your performance and identify areas for future improvement Who Should Attend? The event will be of interest to Vice Presidents, Directors, Managers, Team Leaders and Project Management from the following departments: TARfighter is packed with opportunities for attendees to evaluate and assess their project success, personal performance and decision making, and future areas for improvement. It offers an excellent team building environment for established teams or for new turnaround teams and those that are planned to take up turnaround positions in the near future. Take this opportunity to attend with your colleagues, work as a team and understand the importance of each other’s roles. Gain valuable insight and advice to enable you to: »» Learn how to handle risks and contingencies »» Make decisions about the management and control of contractors and how to handle contract requirements for successful turnaround/shutdown projects »» Recognize possibilities, boundaries and alternatives in decision making and understanding their potential impact »» Maintain control in difficult situations »» Develop a sense of the overall-picture, as well as the details »» Learn how to influence others in group working sessions Don’t miss this opportunity to take away new methodologies, best practices, and key techniques that will immediately save you time and money on your shutdown and turnaround projects. While any real life turnaround project involves commercial risks and pressures, this is an opportunity to step back and truly evaluate your current approach and where you can improve for the future. We look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to this unique turnaround project simulation. David Woods Manager T.A.

  • 3. TARfighter – Shutdown Project Simulation Delivering Cost Effective, Safe and Quality Shutdown & Turnaround Planning and Execution Approaches TARfighter is an interactive business simulation that presents a realistic model of a shutdown/turnaround project at a production site. The TARfighter simulation provides real life scenarios to teach proven strategies to manage shutdowns and turnarounds. During the simulation participants will manage typical turnaround events and conflicts, while making decisions to meet all objectives of the turnaround. At the end of this intensive three-day simulation, attendees will walk away with the appropriate lessons learned to complete their next turnaround project on time and with reduced costs. After completing TARfighter, participants will have acquired: »» Strategies for optimizing turnaround scope of work »» Best practices to handle risks and contingencies of critical shutdowns and turnarounds »» Techniques for managing suppliers and handling contract requirements for a successful shutdown/turnaround project »» Tactics on how to prevent and minimize typical obstacles in turnaround projects »» Understanding of all phases of a critical turnaround project TARfighter offers a high degree of transferable knowledge and skills which can be used to ensure your next turnaround is on time and on budget. TARfighter will simulate a realistic turnaround management project with approximately 40 different work packages. It will be visualized as a work breakdown structure and Gantt diagram which contains failures and breakdowns common to turnaround projects. Each of the four different modules takes you through realistic scenarios of a critical phase of a turnaround project. Lessons learned will be shared throughout the three days, allowing you to return to your site ready to incorporate best practice to your methods and approaches. DATES AND LOCATIONS: July 1-3, 2013 Dubai, UAE Nov. 19-21, 2013 Amsterdam, The Netherlands Nov. 4-6, 2013 Birmingham, UK Nov. 25-27, 2013 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • 4. TARfighter Agenda The TARfighter agenda is built around the needs and expectations of attendees. In between the running of the different ‘phases’ of the simulation, case studies and interactive discussion sessions are designed to complement your knowledge and allow you to discuss your decision making and results with peers. Flexibility is built into our agenda, allowing you to raise your questions with our experts, based on your experiences during the simulation ‘runs.’ The agenda will run from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily, with time built in for refreshments, lunch and networking. About the TARfighter Simulation The TARfighter simulation allows you to run a realistic model of a shutdown/turnaround project making strategic decisions, and mapping the key challenges faced by organizations in a critical turnaround project. Each simulation module is split into a briefing and de-briefing phase. The briefings give you the background information and instructions to complete the next simulation. The debriefing is an integral part of each simulation module and provides you with immediate feedback about actual turnaround scenarios and the outcome and consequences of your decisions. The result? You will experience “real turnaround project leadership.” At the end of this intensive three-day course, you will walk away with lessons learned that will allow you to complete your next turnaround project on time and with reduced costs. The seminar starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. on each day. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with your peers and our expert facilitators each day during lunch and the refreshment breaks.
