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?
Like many issues of energy and environment, the question of how to decommission California's 27 offshore oil platforms was highly controversial. Presenters Max Henrion, PhD and Carl Speltzer present how they helped stakeholders compare perspectives and understand the implications of the decision options.
This webinar looks at the problems faced by a large Canadian energy company when a simple gas station decommissioning project had turned into one of the company’s largest environmental liabilities.
This webinar will reflect on and highlight key events in the 1911 race to the South Pole. Whilst doing this it will also reinforce key project management learning points. Delivered by Dr. Hanif, it will cover the following areas: • Planning and executing strategies • Selecting the right team members • Dealing with uncertainty • Effective leadership • Making progress despite facing adverse conditions • Self belief and determination
So while the foremost skill set in many concrete projects is structural engineering and risk assessment, the detailed calculations of stresses to identify or address critical areas of concern, require accurate knowledge of structure-specific material properties. In these scenarios, "book" values often have little value, and even well-kept construction records may have limited applicability if the age and the service conditions have caused material property degradation. As a project manager, it is critical to know when a detailed materials evaluation is necessary, and how to increase the confidence in the engineering basis of repair/replace decisions to maximize the value received with limited budgets. Real world examples will be presented to demonstrate the important role of material properties in concrete engineering assessments and repair projects
An expert in Risk Management from the utility industry will present a three part webinar series on Risk Management tools and techniques. In this webinar series we will discuss various tools and techniques you can use to plan for risks, alert stakeholders of potential risks, analyze these risks, and develop, implement, and monitor plans to address the risks long before they become issues that can adversely affect project cost, performance, and schedule. This webinar series is geared toward those with advanced risk management skills. This is the second of a three part series on the topic. Register for all three for a complete series of Risk Management tools and techniques!
For years now, agile methods have become the standard for software projects, helping companies deliver more product, faster, with higher quality. But what about the rest of us? What if I work in public utilities? What if I work in manufacturing, or the automotive field, or marketing campaigns? This cutting-edge webinar will reveal several case studies of unconventional uses of agile methods, along with some overarching principles and patterns to help you apply them to your own work, whether it be book publishing or personal fitness.

The presentation is built around a project for a typical gas transmission system. The presentation explains the planning, control and execution of this project in its three parts: Gas Pipeline, Two Compressor plans and a Control System. The presentation shows EVM application during the different phases of the projects. All information contained in this presentation was adapted to make it simple and understandable for a non-engineers audience. A typical EVM application in the Venezuelan oil industry will be shown. To explain the implementation the project, the presentation will explain the design of engineering portions and the related EVM. Also, how EVM is calculated and managed in usual real life situations like delays in equipment delivery, materials and how it affects construction progress. Likewise, how EVM is use in Contract Management and Program Management
