Engineering Studies during Project

PGP/MANEI-E

Who should attend?

  • Technical understanding and sequencing of engineering studies.
Audience :
  • This training is intended for the personnel of contractors and engineering firms involved in the design phases of projects.

Level : Foundation

Course Content

  • UNDERSTANDING OF PROJECT ORGANIZATION

      • Project structure. Main project phases. Design studies scheduling.
  • ROLE OF ENGINEERING IN A PROJECT

      • Its missions: studies, procurement, construction, project management. Identification of deliverables by phases.
      • Conduct of studies on a project. Document management/validation (engineering, customer, vendors, subcontractors).
  • MAIN DELIVERIES & DISCIPLINE TASKS

      • Analysis of the study basis. Applicable codes and standards. Kick off meeting.
      • Identification of tasks and deliverables during the study phases until the start of the purchasing process.
      • Detailed review of deliverables for the different engineering disciplines: process, health, safety and environment, layout, piping, materials/corrosion, equipment, instrumentation and automation, civil engineering/structures.
      • Integration of supplier documents in the study process. Management of interfaces between the different disciplines.
      • Management of study subcontracting.
  • REVIEWS & OPTIMIZATION

      • Most used review methods: HAZID, HAZOP. Design reviews, 3D model review.
      • Optimization: energy efficiency review. Value engineering.
      • Evaluation of alternatives and optimal decision making.
  • KEYS TO SUCCESS

      • How to take into account the geopolitical environment of the project, the constraints of objectives and means.
      • Adequacy of the deadlines of completion to the context. Deliverables related to the critical path. Control of modifications.

Learning Objectives

  • At the end of the training, participants will be able to:
  • define deliverables according to the study phase, for the main disciplines,
  • verify the proper execution of studies and interface management,
  • evaluate the consequences of a modification, before its integration into the project.

Ways & Means

  • Examples and diagrams from Refining/Chemicals projects, discussed in the form of exercises.
  • Mini-project offering practical applications for different engineering disciplines.
