The objective of the course is to present Best Practices and key learnings that program participants can apply to small projects in improving their performance. The course focuses on the specific work processes for smaller projects. Attention is paid to practices associated with executing projects in operating plants. The unique aspects of small and plant projects addressed in the course include annual budgeting process, small project teams and resources, revamp issues, and turnaround/shutdown interface issues. Most small projects that are executed in operating facilities involve some amount of revamp work.
Course materials are based on the cumulative findings of over 20 years of research. IPA maintains proprietary databases of projects executed by more than 200 companies. The IPA databases store detailed information on over 3,000 small capital projects. IPA uses these databases to conduct quantitative research and has identified practices and work processes that lead to more effective use of capital invested in small projects. Small and Plant Project Delivery Excellence integrates key aspects of this body of knowledge into a single course.
