Self-Assessment Turnaround Management

The Turnaround Management Self Assessment is a high level summary of some of the most critical processes, systems and practices that a refinery must have in place to manage turnaround activities effectively. Each of the elements provided in the model represents a critical business process, system or practice - most can also be called "best practice". A top performing refinery would be expected to have all or at least most of these elements as well established practices within the business. The Turnaround Management self assessment provides an example of a level 2 assessment and goes to greater depth than the other three self assessments provided on the website.


The purpose of the Turnaround Management Self Assessment is for a refinery to assess itself against these critical elements of the business to try to understand how it compares with "best practice" and to provide a very high-level indication of where there may be room for improvement. The full Turnaround Management Business Process Model provides a far more detailed analysis and can be performed upon request.


The assessment is completed by filling out the simple questionnaire provided, assessing to what extent you believe the site has implemented each of the processes, systems or practices. The guideline that should be followed is:"Can we demonstrate to an independent party that this process, system or practice is consistently established across or within our site?" Feedback is provided by means of a composite score and there is also a score for each of the main groups within the model. These scores are shown graphically. It should be assumed that a best practice refinery would score between 3.5 and 4 on the composite measure and for each of the main group measures.


The Turnaround Management Business Process Model is a subset of the Asset Management Business Process Model, one of three Business Process Models that make up the PetroQuantum Refinery Management Framework ™, which looks to model the full scope of the business processes and activities that a refinery performs. The Refinery Management Framework is made up of three models:


  •      Refining Business Management
  •      Supply Chain Management (Downstream Petroleum)
  •      Asset Management
