Less Slack in the System for Specialty Plants

How to manage outages through partnership

As specialty plants are increasingly moving to automation and advanced manufacturing practices, there is less and less slack in the system for schedule slippage and downtime. Plants need to be ready to operate whenever production requires. Time is absolutely critical with emergency downtime causing production bottlenecks and huge losses in revenue. How are specialty plants managing both planned and unexpected outages?  Through partnership.
