Detailed Engineering
Conceptual Factory Design: A professionally planned production facility is made up of many essential components, process, logistics, buildings. We first look at what is known as "site understanding". This means analyzing the location strategy and interpreting it according to your standards and aims. The Process Engineers carry the responsibility and ensure that all planned processes can be implemented within the framework of a master plan, right through to the technical systems within the building. The areas are divided into a number of batteries with specification of battery limits. These can be Process Plant, Utilities, Tank Farm and Loading / Unloading etc. On request, he may show a three-dimensional animation of future factory. They draw up the required cost estimates that allow to take the decisions necessary to obtain clearance for the investment.

Basic Design: Each new project could be compared to an organization, where people and economic decisions take on evenly balanced roles. Area calculation, room design, flow of goods and staff, hygiene concept and validatable operation are some of the details need to be worked out. Added together they make up the complete story. "Human factors" add that indefinable extra as they are equally valued pre-requisites for the success of the company. The scale of development will become ever more refined as the project progresses. Drawings on a scale of 1:100 show how functional areas will be used. They provide details regarding heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, power supply, IT network. Equipment plans and specifications are produced and plans for the individual plant components are specified in more precise detail and documented.
Once they have agreed together with clients, the plans have reached their optimal peak, they are now in a position to make an offer for the next stages, on a turn-key basis. However, they should be completely flexible.
It covers the principles and techniques which lead to effective and efficient engineering activities in a project environment. It examines the engineering organization and the elements in each phase of project design and engineering from concept through detailed engineering, stage reviews and client approvals, and engineering support during construction. Engineering and design schedule and budget considerations are reviewed.
Optimizing In House Engineering: Methods and techniques for efficient and effective engineering decision-making and performance which take advantage of alternatives available to insure optimum productivity and quality engineering. Course utilizes the analysis of experience on many projects and emphasizes efficient teamwork and coordination.
Value Engineering: Covers the purpose and principles of value engineering and, methods for reducing overall project costs while maintaining or improving project value. It emphasizes the importance of attention given at appropriate stages in design, procurement and construction to eliminate unnecessary features, considers substitutes and alternates and optimizing costs while preserving the ability to construct of the project.
CAE/CAD For Process Plant Engineers : Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) can be used for project and process plant engineering and designing. Analytical comparison of both systems including experience with prominent basic systems for a broad spectrum of applications on actual projects. It provides basis for selection of appropriate software for project design and operation, and methods to make the use of computers fully effective.
Process Specifications: Structured approach to process specification writing, featuring methods and techniques for code and design practice compliance, optimizing heat and material balances, and developing efficient design parameters while ensuring the integrity of the process, minimizing utility costs and maximizing profitability.
