A Systems Approach to Managing the Complexities of Process Industries explains the principles of system thinking and how it applies to the process industry, along with the benefits of this methodology and its implementation in plants. The focus of this 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 is discussed in a practical way, fully supported with web simulations and video clips. Users will find the fundamental background they need to understand and relate system engineering methods for example HSEMS, Bow-Tie, Swiss Cheese model and more and implement them through an integrated and consistent method and tool. The authors bring a wealth of expertise from various industries, developing this book with the industry professional in mind. This study of the 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
