All the issues that need attention.

Managing complex outsourced CAPEX projects is not a simple task. Many important issues need to be taken into account:

  • Change control (how is it managed)
  • Standardization (can bring great savings and improvements)
  • System utilization (managed process flows)
  • Continuous improvement (how can we achieve it)
  • Turnaround time (time is money)
  • Risk management (what are the risks and how do I identify and manage them)
  • Decision making (who is allowed and where does responsibility lie)
Taking care of each of these issues requires a lot of attention to detail and good management processes and procedures as well as good documentation and an exceptional audit trail.
In our next letter we will be discussing standardization – topics will include conformance, sustainability, tried and tested processes, quality control and workflows.
