The Commissioning Dilemma: Pay Me Now or Pay Me Later, Paper360º September/October 2020
Aside from notable personal exceptions for marriage or childbirth, few things can simultaneously invoke terror and excitement in an organization like large-scale capital investment. Investment managers get an opportunity to prove they can commit to, and meet, a budget and scope. Operations managers get shiny new equipment with the expectation that they will quickly achieve results to meet their commitment to return value for the investment. These emotions are useful in that they can inspire an organization into action. Therefore, developing detailed commissioning and startup plans is a use-ful application of the nervous energy.
Commissioning serves a variety of pur-poses, depending on the organization and the type of project. The primary benefits that come to the minds of experienced managers are risk mitigation and ramp-up. An effective, detailed commissioning plan will align these functions and engage operations very early in the startup process and in more depth than with traditional project transitions.
