The main target of the OpEx project was
to help deliver sustainable process
improvements on the different sites using
the best practice transfer and synergies
across sites whilst expanding the focus on
site infrastructure processes.
The key themes were therefore:
- Optimize existing processes and
introduce improved processes & working
methods with additional know-how
- Realize synergies at site and regional
- Set up effective pre-preparation in order
to reduce inconvenience for the sites by
avoiding repeated data requests, and
adjust the approach in line with each
The definition of the appropriate Site
Diagnostics Process needed to be
developed as main deliverable for PDM.
The diagnostics methodology was
therefore to be developed as a broad
project that covered sites technologies.
Expectations conditional to
The development of the transformation
path for the new GTO organization was
to be linked with a screening for first
optimization potentials within a very short
period of time (3 months) based on an
approved and tested approach.
- Necessary contribution to joint venture
synergy harvest (short term)
- Profound basis for GTO-wide
optimization, best practice sharing &
streamlining (mid term)
The PDM support should lead to an
Organizational vision for GTO.
Through site visits, analysis of data that
was available and a workshop structure.
All relevant key players were involved in
delivering the Site Diagnostics
The main deliverables covering 6
modules were defined with the
- Site Diagnostic Process including
training material for utilisation including
input for resource assessment
- The required communication material
and diagnostics templates
- Site diagnostics results, reports and
