Industry projects and operational assets have experienced the highs and lows of success and failures. When project cost and schedule or operational budgets are on track, the success is often praised openly. When real struggles arise, the news is often quiet or downplayed. The knowledge of what has worked and why it is equally as important to what does not work. This knowledge is imperative to investors, executives, senior management and instrument engineering, process engineering and process control engineering consultants.
As such, ask yourself;
How can Lessons Learned and Best Practices can be applied to prevent re-occurrence?
Is your organisation applying inflated or conservative quantity and schedule estimates that can undermine the success of securing financing or attainable return on investment from operational phases?
Investors may be disconnected from decision making thus impacting their investment as anticipated. Asset owners and managers may be incumbent of Front End decisions made out of their control. The Front End decisions of both the business structure and engineering decisions determine the trajectory of how the business needs to respond or cope. Hiring of appropriately industry experienced and seasoned process engineering or process control engineering consultants can be of great help. Especially those who have ‘been at the coal face’ of industry highs and lows.
At a high level the business objectives including strategy and investments, should be clear. The translation from the business objective into an efficient project or asset covers many disciplines.
Our experienced staff have seen a range of issues and have been involved with remediation, lead and supported many disciplines. Our engineering and specialist trades cover Process Engineering, Process Control Engineering, Instrument Engineering & Electrical Engineering. We can help in early project stages with the development of project standards and best practices. Then through to detailed design, testing such as FAT and SAT testing, Alarm Management Systems and Plant Performance Testing. Engagement of such knowledge may help you prepare for your upcoming project investments or improve a currently operational asset.
We can assist with major project warranty claims to fairly represent investors & asset owners needs and aid in pragmatic support for vendor / OEM (original equipment manufacture) remediation. Thereby preventing or moderating escalation via litigation.
Lessons Learned range from;
- Business structure
- Engineering & technology decisions
- Construction & Construct-ability
- Operational Plants and Optimisation of them
