INFORMATION & IDEAS
Operational risks: How to reduce losses in production operations
The key objective of a business is to generate profit for its shareholders and, as a general rule, to increase capital in the long run. Here, the number of probable and possible losses in a value chain becomes greater with larger businesses and with equipment that remains in operation for longer periods of time. One of the key questions arising at top management level in companies is where to invest resources: in performance improvement or in reliability enhancement?
Safe business = good business
Production safety is a priority task for any industrial enterprise. This matter is particularly important for managers of complex production facilities with high potential of emergencies or accidents. Safety assurance is a non-stop process that must involve highly skilled professionals and that requires continuous management’s attention.
