Productivity Improvement Forum 2019
Productivity Improvement Forum 2019
The Productivity Council for the Process Construction and Maintenance (PCM) Sector was formed in February 2015 through the collaborative effort and support of plant owners, major contractors; government agencies, SCIC and ASPRI to improve productivity in the Energy and Petrochemical industry. The Council completed the first phase (2015-2018) of foundational improvement initiatives with the Construction Industry Institute (CII) and has embarked on the next three-year initiative (2018-2021) to drive tangible productivity gains in the industry. The Council operates through a number of cross functional work groups chartered to advance a specific aspect of productivity in the industry, so that collectively, we improve productivity in a structured and holistic manner that also promotes continuous improvement.
The Productivity Council is pleased to announce the 2019 Productivity Improvement Forum.
The Productivity Improvement Forum (PIF) is an annual event to showcase the key results and findings of the various work groups with insights on opportunities and strategies for improvements. Sessions will be led by the various Workgroup leaders, experts and practitioners in the respective fields.
This year, the forum will showcase the much-anticipated Productivity Certification Framework. This framework is the industry’s yardstick for measuring productivity, and can be the differentiating competitive advantage for contractor companies subscribing to the framework. The forum will also provide updates on significant progress made by the various work groups and share recent development on craft-based Productivity Standards, and Workers’ Capability, a recent addition to the Productivity Council.
Furthermore, the forum aims to enrich your experience with an exciting topic from the Advanced Manufacturing Committee on Industry 4.0 and IIoT. We have expanded our vendor exhibitions to facilitate a knowledge transfer of the state-of-the-art technologies in promoting productivity, and to ensure that you are set up for success in your journey of digital adoption.
