Reducing Project Risk - Plant Services Article by Mike McEnery

McEnery Automation uses our skills as a CSIA Certified System Integrator to reduce project risks.

Mike McEnery provides insight into how our customers benefit from our project management best practices in Plant Services' April 2019 issue.

"Startup risks associated with manufacturing projects can be significantly reduced by partnering with a certified system integrator and using the integrator as an integral part of the team early in the project."

"The Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) is a global trade association that publishes and maintains the CSIA Best Practices and Benchmarks manual - the industry standard for successful management of a control system integration (SI) business. These best practices address project management topics such as risk management, scope and change management, communications management, and reuse management."

"Key project responsibilities a CSIA-certified SI will assume are:

  • Creation of a project management plan that incorporates all planning requirements and design documents
  • Identification of project goals and risks
  • Management of project communications
  • Issuance of a detailed review of design documents
  • Reuse of the design documents for development, testing, and training."
