As FEED transitions into detailed engineering, the review process focuses on:
- Assessing the contractor/vendor technical capabilities, vendor design and tools
- Resolution of technical problems
- Ensuring adherence to the project specifications
- Interpreting job specifications, owner and industry codes/standards
The reviews are a part-time activity of sampling the contractor’s detailed engineering activities and are facilitated by checklists developed by the specialists who identify those items (drawings, calcs, etc.) to be reviewed as they become available. The reviews may include participation in factory acceptance/performance tests such as for large machinery, emergency shutdown systems and fired heater burner management systems. Findings/recommendations are reported to the owner’s project team for follow-up with the engineering contractor/vendor. The specialists are available to support the Project Team in problem resolution.
