The 22nd of October 2014 the IO3 project group held a workshop on the handbook for robust work practices. The ambition for the workshop was to gather representatives from different companies to test the handbook as a reflection tool and share insights and experiences concerning successful integration of decision-making and execution of tasks in an IO setting. The workshop was hosted at Eni Norge in Stavanger with industry representatives from Eni Norge, Statoil and Total in addition to the IO3 research group. We want to thank Eni Norge for hosting the event as well as all participants for interesting discussions and good feedback on the handbook. The research group gave a short introduction to the handbook followed by a discussion revolving whether interpretation processes can be seen as separated from decision making. Sintef presented perspectives on resilience and training from the TORC project (Training for Operational Resilience Capabilities). Eni Norge provided an interesting presentation of the Barents Sea Mindset and implications of resilience training. The presentations led to good discussions – and the handbook themes proved useful as a tool for reflecting on company specific challenges.
Content

Interesting topics in the discussion:

  • To what extent can interpretation be seen in separation from action? This intended provocative statement (more elaborated in the handbook) led to an interesting discussion and all participants stressed the importance of knowing the context for making decisions. The following discussion on risk aversion and uncertainty led to a discussion about how we can enable offshore workers to make more independent decisions.
  • Which aspects of IO have been disintegrated rather than integrated? The participants argued that some IO solutions have not yet been integrated in a successful way. This is related to the following topic on add-ons rather than efficiency.
  • How can we avoid over-involvement, uncertainty and risk-aversion when implementing IO-visions? Several participants expressed concern that some IO solutions have led to add-ons rather than removing inefficient ways of working. Do we need a new paradigm in order to balance cost-cuts with efficient operations and decision making?
  • In a context based on compliance, how can resilience be implemented through training? Training for resilience is an interesting concept. Since the overarching structures require compliance there is a challenge to implement resilience in an effective way. The TORC project addresses training for resilience in the context of compliance targeting both operational staff and management.
  • Today – many procedures are written for novices – which require both another level of detail and limit the action space in the procedures. Should procedures be written for novices, experienced or experts? How can we understand the action-space when errors happen?
  • What does the future look like for the concepts of Integrated Operations? The participants argued that the future is unknown and there are drivers towards both standardization and specific solutions (for example in remote areas and subsea). While standardization is the objective – we might see a more diverse landscape in the future. One possible scenario is that all functions that do not have to be physically performed on the installation will be moved onshore. This would make the issue of integrating decision-making and execution even more urgent than it is today.
