Our Operational Risk Management scope does not only cover partial improvements in the organization, but also optimizations in plant operations to achieve continuously improving safety, reliability and operability.


- Optimize management of supply, whether oil in the ground or feedstocks for a refinery or chemical asset, in light of product market demands. This provides operators with the agility to take full advantage of market conditions.
- Optimize the potential of physical assets, by pushing throughput and maximizing the production of the highest value products, whilst minimizing variable costs such as energy.
- Deliver small and large CAPEX projects, on time and on budget, to deliver growth and meet environmental requirements.
- Confidently ensure asset reliability and availability, whilst controlling maintenance costs. This assures the asset always meets expectations and is always available to capitalize on short term market opportunities.



Plant Safety and Productivity Improvements Realized by Mental Model Based PCS Graphics




Safe and efficient operations rely on operations staff being able to quickly identify potential process deviations before the situation reaches an unsafe or undesirable production condition.





Yokogawa clearly understands customers’ challenges and has developed significant expertise in operations HMI development. Based on this existing expertise Yokogawa has developed a standardized method for the development of site specific HMI design guidelines and a collection of template graphics objects and standards that we are now offering globally.


As a result AOG provides intuitive situation awareness through ergonomic design, primarily focused on layout and design based on operating environment in compliance with ISA101; whilst providing efficient decision making by capturing operational know-how from experienced operators.

The number of incidents involving attempted unauthorised access to computer systems via the internet as reported by CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) was 137,539 in 2003. Statistics show an exponential increase in the number of reported incidents in the last five years. Although this can be partly explained by the increase in the number of computer systems in the world that are connected to the internet, it is nevertheless an alarming fact.
