Achieving Operational Readiness on any Capital Project is a milestone event and should be integrated into every aspect of the Lifecycle of Project Delivery. Historically, Capital Project Management focuses on the delivery of the facility, the equipment, and supporting infrastructure. A good Project Manager will manage the five stages of Project Management (Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closeout) to deliver the project on time, on budget, within scope, and with high quality. An excellent Project Manager understands what the facility needs to achieve Operational Readiness and engages the team to identify the activities necessary to be at full scale production when the “go” button is hit.
