What is the real cost of process commissioning?
It is not just the direct costs of staff and resources, but often more significant are the opportunity costs of delayed production due to inefficiency and delays. What is a one day delay in commissioning really worth to your business?
Most people will acknowledge that commissioning is quicker, cheaper and more effective if commissioning planning is done well. But in many cases the project team are too busy building the plant to spend sufficient time planning the commissioning. As a result, commissioning takes longer than scheduled resulting in increased costs and delayed revenue. This can be overcome by getting on top of commissioning planning by using a structured methodology at an early stage and integrating this into the overall project planning process.
Engineered Efficiency are commissioning planning experts with commissioning planning experience in many industries including Alumina, Chemical Production, Water Treatment, Gold and Rare Earths.
Engineered Efficiency kick off the commissioning planning process with a commissioning planning workshop. The best time to conduct a commissioning planning workshop is early in construction. This timing is important because the outcomes of the commissioning planning workshop can affect the construction schedule, particularly around the order in which particular areas of the plant are completed and handed over to commissioning.
Our commissioning planning workshop is a structured, facilitated process where you will:
A workshop would typically take 2 to 5 days depending on the size and complexity of the plant to be commissioned. Once the workshop is complete Engineered Efficiency will populate the commissioning plan detailing the outcomes of all the areas discussed in the workshop. The plan can then by used by the commissioning manager and their team to manage the commissioning process.
Engineered Efficiency can provide a proforma commissioning procedure template for the team to use to develop the area specific work-packs, or you can draw on our extensive commissioning knowledge and we can prepare them for you.
