By more effectively engaging front line employees, 20 months of continuous improvement increased B/CD in one refinery by 14%, from 68,000 B/CD to 78,500 B/CD. Similar results at a 100,000 B/CD refinery would result in a 14,000 B/CD improvement. At a $10/barrel margin, the yearly margin improvement opportunity is $51.1 million.
The case study of how refinery leaders achieved the above results is the focus of the presentation.
- The patented data set leaders used to discover the opportunity.
