As a member of the original maintenance improvement design team, Dan was also the Shutdown Optimization Leader. This resulted in the design and implementation of an entirely new shutdown management system. The team was successful in reducing costs and downtime by 25% as well as improving safety performance by 40%.
Having managed many large capital and maintenance projects with a team of project and maintenance engineers, Dan was instrumental in the development of Canfor's Capital Project Development Procedure that was able to significantly reduce project "churn" and increase project success.
