2022 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo

SES215a - Ensure Throughput with Operational Advocacy

Nov 1, 2022 4:00pm ‐ Nov 1, 2022 5:30pm


In this presentation, the attendee will learn how to create a winning Operational Advocacy execution plan and how to avoid common pitfalls. By taking advantage of emerging technologies to facilitate front-end design (digital twin, VR/AR, etc.) one can avoid surprises from of overlooked design details. By employing the recommendations, one can provide the operational advocacy needed to produce the fastest output from one’s next facility. A proper advocacy strategy ensures critical continuity of operations-focused information from the beginning of the design effort through the completion of production ramp-up activities. Leveraging learnings from real-life manufacturing plant designs, start-ups, and operations is the most impactful means to create a right first-time facility. Traditional plant design process focuses on engineering and architectural requirements; the resultant facilities are typically quite capable, however, the day-to-day operability of a new plant is subject to high variability. The resultant rework (“operational enhancements”) necessary to meet operational ramp-up goals can be significant. By identifying operational advocates, and then defining an advocacy strategy that weaves these resources into the right project management and facility start-up structure, one can make an impactful execution strategy that maximizes the output to market from any new plant.
