Coordination is the key challenge

“As many units are under construction and commissioning at one time with many people involved, coordination is the key challenge. The flow of information and actions is missing and delays are caused due to one-to-one contact only.”

Cooperation lacking between disciplines

“Too often engineering, construction, turnover and commissioning do not work together. The disciplines do not review each other’s work deliverables or needs and requirements. As a result, the flow of project information is disjointed.”
