Best Practices for Site-Based Projects

Download brochure

Boost the cost, schedule, and operability performance of your small, site-based projects. Learn best practices used by the world's leading project systems.

Course Description

Sustaining and maintenance projects can represent up to 70 percent of capital portfolios for process industry organizations. Independent Project Analysis (IPA) research has found that these projects are frequently less successful than larger projects executed by the same company. By sharing data-driven Best Practices and key learnings from decades of research, this course provides participants the knowledge needed to improve site-based project performance.

The course materials have been enhanced with the latest IPA research on portfolio management, Constructability Reviews, Value Engineering, owner estimating systems, team effectiveness, project controls, and more. New interactive case studies and hands-on breakout exercises are incorporated to drive understanding of key concepts.

Because most site-based projects executed in operating facilities involve some amount of revamp work, a portion of the course is dedicated to the critical issues that revamp projects face and outlines strategies to address those issues.
