MEI Maverick Engineering has adopted a Phased Gated Approach to projects to provide precise management control during planning and execution of projects. At each phase gate the input of critical stakeholders are integrated into solutions to prevent rework as a project unfolds. It has long been established that rework is a major cause of project cost overruns and delays, which can only be mitigated by an effective project management process.
Our process provides a consistent path to managing project from concept to start-up! Furthermore, it is designed to ensure lowest Total Installed Cost (TIC) and best project schedule are established and achieved!
Phased-Gated Approach to Project Management
|Phase Number||Project Phase||Typical Deliverables|
|Planning/FEL||1||Conceptual||Evaluate, Identify and Select Option(s). Preliminary: Summary of Options, Conceptual Scope, Flow Schematic, Contracting Strategy.|
|2||Process Design/ Preliminary Design/ Decision Support||Design Basis, PFD (fundamental process, one option), Contracting Strategy. Preliminary: Major Equipment & Instrument list, Plot Plan, Expanded Scope Statement, PEP.|
|3||Basic Engineering/ Front End Engineering/ AFE Support||Plot Plan, One-Line, P&ID, Area Classification, Control Philosophy, Major Equipment List, Foundation Layout, PEP. Preliminary: Piping, conduit & cable tray layout, Instrument Index, Constructability Review and MOC.|
|Project Execution / EVPM||4||Detailed Engineering||Construction Package. Commissioning & Handover Plan. Start-up Procedure.|
|5||Procurement/ Construction||Construction complete.|
|6||Start-Up||PSSR, Commissioning and As-builts.|
