KBR follows up on front-end engineering with comprehensive detail design engineering to optimise efficiency throughout the project.
KBR’s three-stage design implementation approach is structured to focus on a logical sequence of events and normal sequence of information. This approach enables us to facilitate fast-track implementation, while controlling change, managing out-of-phase activities and implementing in multiple offices. While helping to maintain consistency throughout the project’s lifecycle, KBR’s staged implementation approach supports innovation and enables us to deliver consistently excellent projects customised to our clients’ needs.
KBR’s staged implementation facilitates the delivery of customised project implementation strategies; promotes just-in-time information; supports efficient staffing; encourages timely input from customers, fabricators, constructors and other project stakeholders; highlights critical decision milestones; promotes project alignment; and supports risk-response planning.
“KBR’s staged implementation approach supports innovation and enables us to deliver consistently excellent projects customised to our clients’ needs.”
Staged implementation promotes developing the right information and decisions at the right time. KBR has made a major investment to establish the consistent methodology, tools and discipline necessary to realise the many benefits associated with global engineering. The KBR Way approach to engineering provides KBR with a uniform global foundation for engineering, consistent implementation and predictable deliverables.
KBR’s approach is centred on three key success factors for our clients: a uniform global foundation, consistent implementation, and predictable deliverables (quantity, quality and schedule).
Based on KBR’s staged implementation approach, the KBR Way provides each engineering discipline an online, time-related, graphic roadmap and rapid access to key procedures, approved examples, typical inputs and outputs, and training materials. The KBR Way is based on ensuring consistency across implementation methodology, standard procedures, tools and systems, quality assurance and design integrity. The KBR Way harnesses our vast engineering resources and intellectual capital around the world to deliver projects that meet our customers’ success factors from concept through to ongoing operations.
The challenges we face today with larger and more complex projects have made multi-centre project implementation KBR’s standard model. Multi-centre implementation has been central to KBR’s project implementation approach for more than two decades, and it is now a common practice that is embedded in our tools, processes, procedures and work methods. Using KBR’s standard global procedures, implementation tools and systems, we can deploy multiple engineering offices to provide access to the technical expertise and skill sets of the global KBR organisation to deliver consistency, predictability and implementation excellence.
