TARfighter is based on the fictitious Eubonia Chemicals Company.
The participants are introduced to the following cover story: The management team of Eubonia Corp. is planning a large TAR project in nearby Leutonia (capital of Eubonia), a petrochemical production site. The refinery, which does not belong to Eubonia Corp., defines the timeframe for the shutdown project. In addition to legal inspections, the management team is planning to spend additional capital investment to enhance plant capacity.
The Site Manager is highly motivated to deliver the TAR not only on time and on-budget, but also as a world class project making it a benchmark for other Eubonia Chemical sites. The TAR includes capital improvement projects, new safety solutions, new cleaning and software technologies as well as "next management practices" instead of best practices.
