A clear and smooth-running change management process is crucial, if incidents and unwanted changes are to be avoided. Plants aim to implement changes as safely and efficiently as possible. In practice, however, the MoC process can be complex, intangible, time consuming and difficult to manage.
MoC best practice: based on risk management
The Management of Change best practice enables you to start of at a high entry level and prevents you from having to reinvent the wheel. It guides each of those involved in always taking the appropriate steps in the process and adequately assessing all aspects (including the safety aspects) of changes. It provides you with a benchmark that allows you to quickly and effectively improve your MoC process. Roles, responsibilities and communication lines are clearly defined. To a wide variety of plants it has brought improved performance and trust, between teams, their managers and the rest of the organization, leading to measurable results in both safety and efficiency.
Implementation: key in creating change
A significant factor in creating results with the MoC process is the way the best practice is implemented.
