4. Operational Readiness

Is your operational readiness framework fit for purpose, scalable and getting you the results you require to achieve your ROI?

Does your project meet all the investment requirements and have critical risks been identified and mitigated?

Do you need outside experience and governance to help you get operational ready?

Major capital projects for new facilities demand a comprehensive approach to addressing operational risks. From the earliest decision to pursue the investment, through to commissioning and ramping up the name plate capacity, there are countless choices that will impact business performance and determine operational risks.

As the project moves from concept phase through to construction (and later to commissioning), the number of options shrink while the cost to mitigate risks increase.

We can help you mitigate these risks in the early stages, plus take care of the care, custody and control transition, saving you valuable time and resources while keeping your project sustainable long term.

Our Operational Readiness Pillar consists of these Key Elements:

  • Organisational Design and Effectiveness.
  • People RACI mapping against competency, capability & capacity and ensuring its reflective in position descriptions.
  • Due Diligence review, ensuring FMECA are adequate, PM/Pd.M.’s developed and loaded in CMMS with correct task lists and BoM’s.
  • Punch listing complete and asset ready for handover of care, custody and control to client.
