Applied Operational Excellence for the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries offers a straightforward practical guide for oil and gas companies to understand the comparisons and contrasts between various types of safety management processes, including the standardized structure and ongoing extended benefits that operational excellence can bring to an oil and gas company. The goal of achieving operational excellence is to reduce costs, improve productivity, and enhance efficiency—in other words, operational excellence contributes to the bottom line. Following along with pre-built success in the process industries, many companies in the oil and gas industry appear to use a subset form of operational excellence, yet many are unsure or unaware of all the safety system components that will truly benefit the company holistically, and current literature is only applicable to the process and manufacturing industries. Packed with clear objectives and tools, structure guidelines specific to oil and gas, and guidance for how to imbed your existing safety program under the operational excellence umbrella known as "One-Step Merger," this book will help you establish an overall safety culture vision and challenge your organization to achieve higher levels of safety management and overall company value. Explores how to solidify a foundational operational excellence program applicable for your oil and gas company Clarifies the differences and benefits among various programs under operational excellence (OE), such as SHE (safety, health, and environment), PSM (process safety management), and SMS (safety management system) Explains how to audit and consistently assess how oil and gas OE systems are planned, implemented, and managed, with explanations on cost and time impacts as well as administrative protocols Includes a glossary, acronym appendix, and additional references for further reading

The Dynamics of Supply Chain and Process Management

ERP: The Dynamics of Supply Chain and Process Management is a complete updating and expansion of Avraham Shtub’s award-winning 1999 text Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP): The Dynamics of Operations Management. New chapters, written together with his co-author Reuven Karni, cover enterprise process modeling; design of business processes; a complete revision of the original chapter on the integrated order-fulfillment process using ERP; business process management; business process improvement; and a new appendix on simulating process life cycles: using serious games as teaching aids. MERPTM is designed to facilitate the teaching of integrated operations of a business organization with a focus on corporate performance management. It reflects a fully live environment and allows students to participate in a virtual organization made real and dynamic as minute-by-minute business events and conditions unfold. This book is ideal for use in academic and executive programs aimed at teaching students how integrated systems work. It is suitable as a textbook for the basic MBA Operations Management course or as a text for courses on ERP systems and the development of business processes. In an industrial engineering program it could serve to give students their first, and perhaps only, introduction to business issues like market demand and supplier relationships. "I used Avy Shtub’s award-winning 1999 book on ERP and the accompanying Operations Trainer software in several leading MBA programs in the United States and Europe. Most of the courses were delivered in traditional classroom settings but some of them were offered fully online. The current revision and second edition of the book, co-written with Reuven Karni, adds new materials with an emphasis on services and business processes, provides excellent, detailed examples, and revises old ones of the previous edition. The book is nicely complemented and enhanced by the addition of a unique, dynamic, online simulation package MERPTM that represents a major upgrade to the old, PC-based Operations Trainer. In my reading, the book’s first main theme, Integrated Production and Order Management (IPOM), is a different, and perhaps more valid, take on the many issues associated with Supply Chain Management. The authors touch on all facets and issues of Operations and Supply Chain Management and provide a theory-based and sound, practice-proven approach to the problems present in any organization. The second main theme covers the design and improvement of enterprise and business processes, touching on facets and issues relating to process-based enterprise management. I would highly recommend the book and the accompanying software to any instructor teaching Operations/Supply Chain Management, Business Process Management or Industrial Engineering." -- Gyula Vastag (Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary)

It will describe the process engineering concept and how it can be applied to IT Service Management.

'Relationship and Resource Management in Operations' explains in practical terms the importance of the business relationships with internal and external counterparts while demonstrating how things can go wrong and what causes the situation. The authors examine the need to instil cultures in the team focusing on client service, risk and cost effectiveness. The text covers, via practical examples, the kind of scenario managers or supervisors might face in their role and shows what decisions could and should be made. The operations function in a financial organization is crucial to the success of the business. It drives both profitability and reputation as well as contributing to business development and support. It is also a complex part of a business and one that is treated differently in different types of organizations. The complexity of operations and the diverseness of the teams and the people they interact with create a need for a high degree of relationship and resource management. For instance a bank that is involved in both retail and investment banking will have hundreds of different relationship situations, but so too will a small private client broker. Some situations may be common to all types of organizations; others common to particular types of organizations and a few will be very specific to an organization. These relationships may be very open or highly discreet and confidential. Whatever the type of relationship, whether problematic or successful, it is likely that any problems will have an impact of the business. For operations managers their role is a key one. Charged with managing resources and the numerous relationship issues, it is neither a simple task nor, because of the variety and frequency of the issues that might arise, one that is easy to find solutions for. This book, however, explores some of the situations that managers might find themselves in and puts forward some solutions. Relationships and resources are the energy source that makes operations work and managed well they will provide the means to grow and to attain success. The central aim of this book is to provide knowledge and guidance on this important and key area of operations management. Successful operations teams are built on talented resource and effective management - let this book be your guide. The definitive series of professional references for those finance professionals concerned with "Back office" or operations management unique to this industry.Shows in practical terms the importance of the business relationships for financial operations management teams.A comprehensive resource from a leading financial management consultant for global banks and institutions.
