A Systems Approach to Managing the Complexities of Process Industries explains the principles of system thinking and how it applies to the process industry, also including its benefits and implementation in plants. The focus of the book is on project and plant management, executive teams, and relative tasks/decision-making. The book covers engineering, procurement, and construction, and then moves on to operation and maintenance. System engineering, system thinking, and complexity management are also discussed in a practical way that is fully supported with web simulations and video clips. Users will find the fundamental background they need to understand, relate, and implement system engineering methods for example, HSEMS, Bow-Tie, the Swiss Cheese model, and more . The authors bring a wealth of expertise from various industries, keeping the industry professional in mind. This study of this end-to-end process will help users improve operational excellence and navigate the complexities of managing a chemical or processing plant. Presents a review of Operational Excellence and HSEMS Methods, along with solutions to complex process problems Provides a comparison of the process industry with other industries to generate new insights into familiar issues Includes an explanation on how collaborative and simulation tools, such as PLM, can improve the implementation of operational excellence and HSEMS
