Re-Tasking Existing Equipment and Legacy Facilities
Facilities and Equipment Track
The consolidation within the industry has resulted in a growing surplus of high quality equipment that has become dormant or available for resale. Fueled by industry pressures, many organizations are looking to this area as a means to save on two critical areas: cost and schedule. While the benefits are clear, there are pitfalls and challenges that must be recognized and overcome to make such projects successful.
Learn how to address the business level and the economics that must be taken into consideration, risks that must be weighed and contingency plans that must be evaluated before a final decision is made. Avoid potential pitfalls with specific guidance and awareness. Important consideration will be given to the facility and how it interfaces with the used equipment to mitigate equipment installation and operational problems.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand the complexities of used equipment projects.
- Obtain a set of tools for analysis and evaluation of specific issues
- Explore the difference between classic and renovation –type projects
