The division regularly publishes its own studies on the subject of maintenance and turnarounds in a multi-client format. Interested companies have the opportunity to participate as a partner and pose their own questions, or they can profit from the results by purchasing the study.

On the basis of extensive data banks on productivity in maintenance as well as indicators and KPIs, the division also offers individual benchmarks for companies in the process industry and its service providers. In addition to the individual creation of benchmark reports according to the desired criteria, a company’s own values can be compared. Benchmarks are offered in detail for the following subjects:

  • Productivity in maintenance
  • Indicators and KPIs (maintenance, turnarounds, Capex projects)
  • Turnarounds/shutdowns
  • Capex projects
  • Occupational health and safety and the safety culture

Publications round off the service portfolio. In professional articles and interviews, experts from the field report about trends and concrete projects. At the same time, companies use the media as a platform to present their own services and products.
