“Interface Management Energized Concurrent Engineering on Mega-Projects”
The interface management is a built-in and integral part of overall project management, it’s a phenomenon wherein the work-groups liaise, commit & interact within cross-project delivery team members to resolve interfaces needed for mega-projects. The interface management is equally applied to augment the process of Concurrent Engineering on mega-projects. Concurrent engineering is an art of performing tasks in parallel and concurrently, this presentation describes how the interface management resonates the process of concurrent engineering with the sole target to execute projects ahead of normal schedules, lower than normal budgets, and conforming to the required safety and quality yardsticks. All the Operators and the E&C Companies are in total agreement that the main reason for budget overruns & schedules delays in mega-projects is the ineffective interface management. In this presentation the IM is applied to the Concurrent Engineering, so do attend and prepare for the lively Q&A session.
Speaker: Rafiq (Rick) Khadimally, PMP, Consultant, Interface Management, Chevron Malange Project Angola
