Global Manufacturing Training : lokalimplementering av fältoperativutbildningsprogrammet vid Notre Dame de Gravenchon raffinaderiet  (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The Global Manufacturing Training (GMT) project aims at homogenizing and raising the level of competency of the workforce at ExxonMobil plants in all countries where the company is active. This report presents and introduces the main structures of the GMT venture. It deals with important aspects of the project on a global scale, but it also details the implementation of training on a local level. The different pedagogical strategies are outlined, along with the resulting system of training documents.

A global team of experts developed general training documents, called global modules in order to set the standard for the various training documents. The inherent differences between the plants in the ExxonMobil corporation makes it necessary to adapt the global modules to fit with the site in question. The differences between the plants are of both technical character, but also concern working procedures. The process of adapting each document according to the GMT outline is called Localization.

In the current work, the localization of training documents for the Powerformer at the refinery in Notre Dame de Gravenchon-Port Jérôme (NDG-PJG) is detailed and explained. At the NDG-PJG refinery there are two units containing a Powerformer. The training documents concern the field operator, working on what is locally called the Reforming 2 position. The ensemble of the documents localized will be used for the habilitation of the process operator. Habilitation refers the preparatory training needed in order to be able to perform the tasks and procedures of a specific position. The work has resulted in the localization of 90 percent of the global documents concerning the Reforming 2 position.
