Put Us In Coach – We Have the Experience to Increase B/CD by 10%

By more effectively engaging frontline employees, 18 months of continuous improvement increased B/CD by 14%, from 66,000 to 75,300 B/CD. Similar results at a 100,000 B/CD refinery would result in a 14,000 B/CD improvement. At $10/barrel refinery margin, the annual improvement opportunity is $51.1 million.

How the refinery leadership team achieved the above results is the focus of the webinar. The case study will show how the leadership team engaged frontline employees by following the data. They used the data from GRG’s (Genesis Reliability Group) patented data set for the following:
