Annual Meeting Workshops

W1: Project Lifecycle Overview in Chemical Industry

8:00am - 1:00pm PST

Instructor: Deepak Sharma, Sr. Process Engineer, Bayer U.S.

Success of any company depends on how efficiently capital projects are handled. Typically, any engineering project involves a sequence of steps that needs to be effectively managed between various stakeholders such as process engineer, mechanical engineer, chemical engineer, civil engineers, project engineers/managers, project controls engineers, operations engineers etc. Each phase of a project involves dealing with different set of challenges and skills. Not knowing the roles and responsibilities of each stakeholder can be very detrimental for the progress of an engineering project. This course/ workshop will outline the role of each stakeholder in a project to ensure the completion of required deliverables at various stage gates.  The training primarily focuses on the coordination effort required by chemical process engineers to make any project achieve the desired scope within time and budget. One would also get an introduction to the importance of P&IDs (Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams) revision and basic knowledge on how to design and read the P&IDs in this training. Valuable knowledge of different phases of a project and various stage gates that a typical project goes through is something that is not taught in academia and can take years for anyone in the industry to grasp. This training will ease the transition for individuals transitioning from academia to industry by providing them a bird’s eye overview of their role in a chemical industry project. Whether you are fresh out of college, new to an engineering group, or planning to transition from an operations role to a project role this training will give you the required knowledge for a great head start to your sought-after role.
