How to generalise implementation processes in engineering projects

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

In engineering and construction projects, it cannot be denied that formal processes whether they are IT or not have several advantages. They allow frame exchanges as well as putting in place and following critical procedures. With hindsight, they encourage companies to formalise their business processes management. Thus it generally makes them more efficient and willing to share their good management practises.

Engineering and Risk Management

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

The fields of engineering and construction have always been linked with risk assessment. Nonetheless, risk management is becoming more and more important for both success of projects and companies’ profitability. Indeed, due to technological innovations as well as the increasing complexity of equipment, the appearance of new standards and regulations to follow, the number of potential sources of risks is increasing.

Configuration management – How to drive data evolution efficiently

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

To effectively manage products, systems and infrastructures, it is above all necessary to manage the evolution of data and products rather than having a static view of the data. In fact, the need of industrials is mainly related to managing the evolution of data and products and not having a static view of data. More precisely, in the construction sector everything is about “movement” and evolution: innovation, development, modification … A technical reference is not intended to be a virtual archive room! Finally, what matters is not the “photo of data” but their creation and evolution over time.

Efficient achievement of deliverables

How to easily manage deliverables?

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

Managing deliverables effectively is essential in construction and engineering projects. Providing deliverables ends parts of the project and is often linked to payments. Consequently, effective project management requires clear monitoring of deliverables. Each deliverable is attached to a dedicated file which, all gathered, provide a Final Deliverables List (FDL) which is a record of executed items.

Business process mapping

Business process mapping

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

To improve business processes, it is important to have a global overview. Create a map of processes helps to identify, understand and manage interrelated processes as a system. It contributes to the effectiveness and efficiency of the whole organization to reach its objectives. Business process mapping helps companies to obtain a shared vision of business processes and to optimize them.

Organize collaboration in engineering projects

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

The single repository is a strategic part of information systems while using PLM. It creates a “single version of the truth” by centralizing and structuring all projects and processes.

With a PLM, participants can directly access their assigned tasks so they can focus on performing their work instead of wasting time looking for the appropriate information or correct version of a document.

Coordinate various participants

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

coordinate various participantOne of the main focuses of successful projects is to coordinate and collaborate effectively. In a project, participants are not only from internal teams, more and more participants are external, such as stakeholders, sub-contractors….

One of the challenges of this collaboration is that the roles involved in the project life cycle are varied. Each participant has a different role and therefore expectations and goals of their own. While it is important to have an overall vision of the project, each participant needs to focus on his or her own role.

Asset Property Management and Public Infrastructure

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

infrastructure lifecycle management

Public authorities often manage large public asset infrastructure. It constantly changes and involves projects such as renovation, construction or maintenance works.
Priority is to efficiently manage data increasing complexity. This complexity is mainly due to:

  • A growing volume of documentation, requirements and changes
  • Many people involved
  • Many regulations to consider
  • More related data – impacts are more important than ever in engineering projects and tracking information all along projects is key.
