The Turnaround Planner is a person experienced in maintenance who has the skills and knowledge to create job packages from a Plant Maintenance work orders designated to be completed during a turnaround (a scheduled plant maintenance outage). The job package contains information about labor, materials and contract services needed to ensure safe and efficient execution of the work.
The Turnaround Planner creates and assembles a quality job package that ensures safe and efficient execution of the job scope in the field. Quality refers to job package accuracy and job package value.
The Turnaround Planner develops job plans for mechanical maintenance work such as like for like repairs, replacements, internal and external inspections.
The job plans involve crafts such as pipefitters, welders, riggers, inspectors, millwrights, insulators, scaffolders, painters, FRP, hydroblasting and other specialty crafts.
May also be required as needed to develop Capital commissioning packages.
During turnaround execution, the planner will be on call to create job packages for any add-on/discovery repair jobs.
Job Package Accuracy (zero errors and omissions, no field changes)
Ensure job package content conforms to Job Plan Package Contents and includes flange tags, flange tag listing, Bill of Materials, torque and pipe specs.
Review PM (Plant Maintenance) orders for technical completeness and scope clarity. Send PM orders back to gatekeeper if incomplete or insufficient to complete a job plan.
Walk the job in the field, even if plan was pulled from archive records, to verify field conditions and confirm equipment matches job scope.
Verify all component parts meet pipe and material specs, field dimensions, equipment orientation and constructability. Outdated or P&IDs inconsistent with equipment specs as verified in the field must be returned to operations for correction and clarification.
Job steps, man-hours and planned costs (including PO costs) in SAP must be accurate. Review and confirm job step durations, job step sequencing, support equipment requirements and crew sizes from contractors assigned to do the work.
Collaborate with TAC and MES (maintenance engineering services) to reduce or modify inspection scope of work and resultant support needs to ensure no changes occur during execution.
Minimize contingencies and adding cushion to planned man hours and costs.
Markup and add to job package documents such as P&IDs, equipment drawings, torque and piping specs. Verify P&IDs and engineering drawings match the equipment in the field.
