Process Design & Engineering

  1. Form a Conceptual Process Flow Diagram before POs are issued to vendors
  2. Acting as a controls agent for the project, contact all possible vendors (skid by skid or process area by process area), confirming/isolating those vendors who are responsive and open to accommodating project specific needs, and verifying all aspects of required electronic documentation
  3. All engineering to get to final vendor selections
  4. Develop engineering for detailed PFD and preliminary P&IDs (Process & Instrumentation Diagrams) and begin to lay out following:
    • Area Classifications
    • Cabinet locations
    • I/O database
    • Instrument Index
    • Conduit Routing
    • Cable Schedule
  5. Review P&IDs for the needs of the project and fill out balance of information to reflect issued for construction P&IDs
    1. Reviews are iterative and can easily reach 5-7 revisions
  6. Fulfill the following:
    • Estimated Timeline
    • Generate, update and hold project meetings
    • Generate, update and distribute project schedules
    • Identify any areas of slippage, concern or cost impacts
      • Personally attend to – with Webex, phone calls and visits – any concerning vendors
    • Witness any required vendor FATs
    • Purchase small cap project items
      • e.g. instruments, controls, network equip, security cameras
    • Develop test procedures
    • Develop loop sheets
    • Develop instrument connection diagrams
  7. Develop process narrative
  8. Develop ESDs as needed
  9. Design graphic and alarm schemes
  10. Transition from design to Implementation as needed, including overall project management
