The target of the case:
introduce the Mentee to Saipem and, generally, to the Oil and Gas business;
introduce the Mentee to the area of Project Control;
introduce the Mentee to an EPCI contract;
provide the Mentee with a concrete case of monitoring and control activities (reports, work instructions, procedures, communication, mails, … ) to be applied to TAP contract;
analyze and discuss with the Mentor criticalities, issues and areas of improvement related to monitoring and control activities.
Tasks assigned to the Mentee:
perform a review of the case materials;
make a critical assessment of the case;
Identify main issues/criticalities related to the monitoring process of engineering activities.
Dashboard complexity / large number of information and data
Introduce a narrative/preliminary section, making easier the systematic reading and leading to a quicker understanding of the problems/events/issues. The narrative section might include:
Dashboard presents and highlights delay in the engineering activities, but there is no evidence of the main causes. Engineering delay might be the result of different events, mainly defined as:
Introduce a figure/data/indicator in order to give evidence and in order to distinguish internal inefficiency vs external inefficiency.
Criticality: Missing evidence and track of remedial action and follow-up.
Mitigation/remedial action: The delay/inefficiency can be solved through a mitigation/remedial action and an ongoing follow up of this mitigation/remedial action.
For example, in case of internal inefficiency, two solutions/actions can be found/proposed:
Criticality: No evidence of delay impact on procurement and construction activities. If the engineering obstructs the purchase of a particular material, or the execution of construction activities, at the same time is is obstructing the whole project.
Mitigation/remedial action: Introduce a specific section in the dashboard in order to highlight possible impact on other project activities (mainly procurement and construction).
