Hiring of engineering personnel
(effort and configuration of a large team)
Similarly, this process requires input from all engineering disciplines to define resource levels, i.e., jobs and corresponding person-hours. A common mistake is neglecting the validation of person-hour budgets on deliverables and personnel.
(major team effort and configuration)
This process is common to the configuration of all projects. Therefore, a multidisciplinary effort is required to define the Deliverables List and associated labor hours and create the budget for all engineering disciplines.
Key Document Review
This process allows any project member to initiate a document review process and select reviewers to provide comments or approvals. In addition, many workflow loops are available that enable paths for multi-disciplinary input.
(highly repeatable process)
Facility inspections will frequently occur during the Procurement Cycle. Non-conformances must be expedited and resolved quickly and efficiently to avoid project delays. Business and technical interactions between the plant inspector, project engineer, and purchasing department are streamlined with this process.
Request for quotation - Supply
(multi-departmental and highly repetitive process)
This process is critical in project delivery as it is quality, schedule, and cost-sensitive. It is highly repetitive and involves the participation of many departments. There is added complexity in the review and approval process with multiple backups available. Therefore, the workflow is designed with intensive industry practice.
Project risk assessment
(multi-departmental and repeatable process)
Risk assessment is the cornerstone of any project to meet KPIs. It is performed with all project departments at the beginning and repeated at regular intervals during the project. It is a dynamic picture, and the risks evolve as the project stages evolve. This workflow provides the structure for implementing a comprehensive project risk mitigation strategy.
