The Guaíba 2 Project launched by Celulose Riograndense (CMPC) generated 80% of its own energy through product processes. Attend this webinar to hear about the project’s challenges, best practices, and lessons learned.
The Internet of Things, Smart Devices, Brilliant Factories, and a Digital Thread are all concepts with the future of Manufacturing for the 21st century. What do these concepts mean? And what role will project management play in delivering the value that companies seek in these investments?
Save Time With Tools + Templates
Use this project management plan outline for projects in the electrical product manufacturing industry. It includes sections for an executive summary and plans for scope, quality, schedule, resources, communications and more.
This template is aimed at project managers of solar projects. It allows you to create the project budget starting from the Engineering Department Bill of Quantities. It gets to the contract price starting from the total project cost. It also manages three currencies, allows you to set up project cost monitoring and generates project cash flow. It can be a good basis for historical data analysis, and can make an important contribution in the project reporting production.
This document describes a template for an activity list based on a project WBS, which is typical on the development of new products for the electromechanical industry like industrial automation equipment. The purpose of this document is to offer an activity list based on the key disciplines that distinguish a development of a new product for the electromechanical industry.
Learn From Others
Energy firms are aware that the world is watching their actions concerning environmental impact. In this context, Chevron’s El Segundo Coke Drum project—winner of PMI’s Project of the Year Award in 2015—is well worth studying. The project was successful, delivered under budget and with an excellent safety record.
Nuclear technology and project management have a long standing relationship. The River Corridor Closure Project was a finalist for the PMI Project of the Year award in 2015. As a large-scale project that dealt with significant hazards and large budgets successfully, there is much to learn from this project.
Public-private partnership projects can help emerging economies fill infrastructure gaps—if governments define a clear ROI.
A new wave of nuclear power plant projects must overcome gaps in talent, the supply chain and public support.
Once project planning begins, procurement quickly becomes a vital activity. Whether you are building a bridge, installing a software upgrade or launching a new product, procurement matters to project success. Procurement poses both ethical and practical challenges.
Studies have shown that inappropriate requirements are the leading cause of project failure. And a few categories of requirements are not as well documented--and should be considered when it comes to projects within the natural resources and energy sectors. This article discusses the consideration of said requirements, along with the associated risks and opportunities.
Chevron gets creative to meet the needs of a fuel-hungry U.S. metropolis.
In Part 1, we looked at how two similar megaprojects--separated in time by 1,800 years--delivered transformational change through the magnitude of their engineering achievements. But to understand the challenges of managing megaprojects--what is it that makes them so alluring yet so fraught with difficulty?--we must first understand what shapes the urgency of their ambitions.
Construction project planning requires creating detailed construction activities work schedules. Being organized with all your construction documents can minimize missing key information. Learn how to develop a clear and complete schedule, and how it can make a complex project seem a bit easier to handle.
Keeping the data center in house is becoming an increasingly expensive and risk-laden endeavor. Outsourcing the data center can ignite all sorts of fear, uncertainty and doubt. So which is better? Specifically, which is better for your organization? Perhaps reflecting on the tradeoff between each can help you choose a path that is prudent and wise.
