  • Phases PART 2
    • Strategic Planning
    • Purpose – To re-life Unit and its Equipment
    • Mission
    • Values and Beliefs that Drive Performance
    • Goals – Organization, Project, Team, Personal
    • Measures of Success
  • Values
    • Communicate means pushing information to the lowest level of people.
    • Communicate means working at a level of detail where the lowest-level people are making the commitments and monitoring those commitments by reporting, tracking and measuring response
  • Leadership
    • Project engineering leads equipment acceptance supported by process engineering, operations, maintenance and assisted by contractors, vendors.
    • Process engineering leads system validation supported by operations, maintenance assisted by vendors, contractors, and project engineering.
    • Production start up is lead by operations and maintenance supported by process engineering and assisted by vendors, contractors, project engineering.
  • Planning Issues
    • Review Schedules, Protocols, Simulations, Document Control, Documents, Start- up Flow Sheets over and over. Establish a Review Process for all elements of preparation and planning.
    • Document control is crucial and must have a process flow chart with each document defined. Documents must be tracked, quality of information verified, and completeness verified.
    • Establish equipment verification protocols and systems validation protocols early and allow comment and criticism before issuing the protocols.
    • Control systems are vital to systems validation. Review control system acceptance protocols and standards with care to ensure all understand the expectation.
    • Protocols address what is verified (mission), by what means (how), according to what standard (measure), by a team of what people (who), according to what schedule) when), and who signs as completed (authority)
