Interface Management
Energized Concurrent Engineering on Oil & Gas Mega-Projects
by Rafiq Khadimally

This book provides extensive practical knowledge on Interface Management and how it influences the overall life- cycle of project management on oil & gas mega-projects. Also provides a review on how interface management enhanced the Concurrent Engineering, its multi-discipline design & engineering performed concurrently. The Interface Management augments safety, quality and savings on the projects, is an integral part of the overall project management, and mechanism to manage the internal & external interfaces. The Interface Management encompasses all the ten facets of PMI’s “PMBOK” that includes Integration, Scope, Time, Cost, HSEQR*, Procurement, HR, Communications, Risk, and Stakeholder Managements. The Interface Management processes ensure prompt, regimented and documented mode of coordination amongst the disciplines, various entities & project team members called the Work-groups - (WG’s). The Clients, Operators and EPC Companies are all in agreement that an ineffective Interface Management is one of the major root-causes of budget over-runs & schedule delays that also impact the Safety & Quality. An effective interface management ensures project scope completion, delivery on time and budget to the satisfaction of project stakeholders. The conclusion is with path forward & lessons learned, etc.
