E-710 - Engineering Management

3 days PL/EM
  • Anyone wishing to gain a clear understanding of engineering activities and their execution by a contractor
  • This includes project engineers and engineering managers
  • To provide an overview of Oil & Gas projects engineering studies, from conceptual design to detailed drawings
Learning Objectives
  • To coordinate all engineering activities, deliverables, work sequence and interfaces
  • To evaluate the main risks: schedule, vendors, interfaces, quality and how to mitigate them
  • To control engineering execution: critical issues and controls/KPI to put in place
  • To use best practices, including management of changes, progress control, etc.
Ways and means
  • Half of the training is devoted to hand-on exercises on engineering discipline and management tasks
  • Quiz at the end of each section to test knowledge acquisition
  • Interactive pedagogy: trainees are constantly led to think and learn by themselves
  • A 200-page guide will be provided to each trainee for future reference
This course can be delivered in French, with documentation in English
