In response to environmental issues such as global warming, greenhouse gas reduction, and climate change impact, it has become one of Taiwan’s most important policies to expand the use of green energy and to accelerate its industrial development. On February 1st, 2008, the Executive Yuan ratified the promotion plan of LPG bi-fuel vehicles. Within five years, the government will spend 7.572 billion dollars increasing the number of LPG bi-fuel vehicles to 150 thousand and that of LPG service station to 150. The use of LPG bi-fuel vehicles can reduce the emission of greenhouse gas and air pollutants. As a result, the influence of high oil price on citizens’ lives could be reduced. LPG service stations are usually located in densely-populated metropolitan areas. However, LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a kind of highly flammable gas. Thus, its leakage may result in explosion, which is very likely to cause serious damages and casualties. Based on previous experience, the variation of manufacturing process is exactly the time when accidental injuries occur. Moreover, the operational procedures following the variation may lead to staff negligence easily. Since the variation of manufacturing process has caused great harm and the industry merely focuses on security management regarding the variation, it can never be done thoroughly to enhance the security level. This study will take a LPG service station as an example to discuss the current situation of managing system variation. In the end, an effective managing system variation will be provided as a reference for the industry.
