Energy Management Advisory: Engineering Project Management

Engineering project management strongly involves the application of project management principles and techniques.

It uses planning, organising, coordinating, and controlling the resources, activities and stakeholders involved in the execution of engineering projects to achieve their objectives.

Engineering project management encompasses a range of tasks and responsibilities, including:

Project planning

Defining project objectives, scope, deliverables, and timelines. Creating a detailed project plan that outlines tasks, milestones, and resource requirements.

Resource management

Allocating and managing resources effectively.

Risk management

Identifying and assessing project risks and developing strategies to mitigate or manage them.

Quality management

Ensuring that engineering projects meet the required quality standards and specifications.

Communication and stakeholder management

Establishing clear communication channels and managing relationships with project stakeholders.

Progress monitoring and control

Tracking project progress against the plan, monitoring key performance indicators, and taking corrective actions as needed to keep the project on track.

Documentation and reporting

Maintaining accurate project documentation, including project plans, technical specifications, change orders and progress reports.

Energy Advisory: Engineering Project Controls

Engineering project controls are the processes, systems and tools used to monitor, track, and control various aspects of an engineering project.

Project controls provide visibility into project performance, facilitate decision-making, and help ensure that projects are completed successfully within budget, schedule, and quality targets.

Some key components of engineering project controls include:

  • Cost control: estimating, budgeting, and tracking project costs
  • Schedule control: developing project schedules
  • Scope control:defining and managing the project scope
  • Risk management: identifying and assessing risks that may impact project success.
  • Change management: Change management focuses on managing changes to project scope, schedule and budget.
  • Document control: managing project documentation.
  • Performance reporting: generating reports and dashboards to provide project stakeholders with up-to-date information on project progress.
Engineering project controls provide project managers and teams with the necessary tools and techniques to effectively manage and deliver engineering projects.  By implementing robust project control processes, organisations can enhance project visibility, mitigate risks, improve project outcomes, and ensure project success.
Energy Management Consulting: Engineering commercial management services
Engineering commercial management services are services provided to manage the commercial aspects of engineering projects. These services aim to maximise project profitability, minimise risks and ensure effective financial management throughout the project lifecycle.  Engineering commercial management services typically include the following:

Managing contracts and agreements related to the project.

Estimating project costs, preparing budgets and monitoring project expenditures.

Generating financial reports and statements to provide accurate and timely information on project financial performance

 Identifying and assessing financial risks associated with the project and developing strategies to mitigate them.

Managing relationships with suppliers and subcontractors, including contract negotiation, performance monitoring and ensuring timely payment.

Managing and resolving claims and disputes related to commercial matters.

Identifying opportunities to enhance project value while managing costs.

What is a commercial risk review?

A commercial risk review is an evaluation of the potential risks and uncertainties associated with a project or business venture.

It focuses on identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks that may impact the financial performance, contractual obligations, or commercial viability of the project.

During a commercial risk review, various factors are examined, including :

  • Contractual risks: Assessing risks associated with contracts and agreements.
  • Financial risks: Evaluating risks related to project finances, including cost overruns, budget constraints, currency fluctuations, and cash flow challenges.
  • Market risks: Examining risks associated with the market conditions in which the project operates.
  • Supplier and subcontractor risks: Assessing risks related to the performance and reliability of suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Pricing and cost risks: Evaluating risks associated with pricing strategies, cost estimation, and cost control measures.
  • Legal and regulatory risks: Identifying legal and regulatory risks that may affect the project’s commercial operations.

By effectively managing the technical aspects of clean energy projects, engineering managers play a critical role in ensuring the successful implementation and operation of renewable energy systems. 

Their expertise in engineering principles, project management, and stakeholder coordination helps drive the transition towards a sustainable future.
