Onpoint Reduces Lost Productivity Due to Poor Materials Management
At Onpoint, we believe that experience is the best teacher. For this reason, we consistently leverage our decades of experience to develop innovative solutions for the most common reasons that turnarounds go over budget. Take materials management as an example — anyone who’s been responsible for executing a turnaround recognizes that purchasing, storing and tracking the necessary materials to do the job can be an overwhelmingly difficult piece of the turnaround puzzle.

The negative impact of inefficiently managing your materials directly affects your ability to sustainably predict project schedules and budget outcomes. Did you know that on a single shift of a complex turnaround, one hour and six minutes for each direct labor worker is lost due to poor materials management? Craft workers often spend this time hunting down or waiting for the materials they need to get the job done.
