Engineering

A. Engineering Work Phase

B. Definition

Engineering is an application of the scientific principle, theoretical knowledge, and


analysing and developing the design economically with technologies and experiences.
Engineering outputs (deliverables) are generated and developed based on the agreed
design basis including specifications, codes and standards, and regulations to support
to the manufacturing goods and constructing facilities. Engineering disciplines of energy
and chemical industries are process, mechanical, piping and pipeline, electrical, control
system and instrumentation (CSI) and civil, Structural and architecture (CSA).

Design is a creation of the detailed plans from concept basis on the specifications, code
and standards, and procedures for manufacturing and construction.

Design and Engineering is the process of developing a component, system, process,


or plant by the methodical series of steps that engineers use in creating functional
products and processes and follow to come up with the solutions to problems to meet
the project specifications, code and standards, regulations, etc. The Design and
Engineering is the basic science, mathematics and engineering practices are applied to
convert resources optimally to meet the project requirements as well as the variety of
realistic constraints, such as economic factors, safety, environment, reliability, and
social impacts.

Conceptual Design is an initial design document for the feasibility study including
operation capacities (feeds and products), screening of the process technologies, site
(plant location) selection studies, high level process and basic documentations (BFD or
PFD and overall plant layout), initial project schedule (Level 1) and budgetary cost
estimate (-50 ~ +100%). The Conceptual Design result is the basis of FEED or Basic
Engineering.

Feasibility Study is an assessment and evaluation of a new project or system viability


that focuses the technical feasibility and commercial profitability. The Feasibility Study
involves the legal, economic, technology, cost and schedule, environmental and other
factors up to the completion of project as well as the commercial operations. In general,
the Feasibility Study is a preliminary study performed in the early stage of the project, a
conceptual design or FEED engineering stage.

Front End Engineering Design (FEED) is for the evaluation of accurate TIC (Total
Investment Cost) estimate and development of overall project execution planning, and
preparation of tendering documentation for main EPC (Engineering, Procurement,
Construction) contractor selection, and to make a FID (final investment decision). The
FEED engineering depth is similar to a basic engineering, and it is developed based on
a conceptual engineering or pre-FEED results, and basis of a detailed design and
engineering. The FEED engineering main outputs are process studies including process
technology selection, process and utility configuration, and optimizations for a cost
minimization, supporting documentation for permits and funding, EPC execution
planning including EPC cost estimate (Accuracy: +/- 15 ~ 30%), EPC Schedule, EPC
tendering document, and basis of detailed design and engineering document. Type of
FEED is a light, normal and extended FEED based on engineering and deliverables and
depth depend on the client's demand. The FEED is also called a Front End Engineering
(FEE) or Front End Loading (FEL).
Basic Engineering is a basis of detailed design and engineering development for a
construction. A cost estimate in the basic engineering phase may typically be refined to
+/- 15 ~ 30%, and this is used as the project final investment decision (FID). In many
cases this package may also be called as a front end engineering design (FEED) and
used as an Invitation of Bidder (ITB) or tender package for the EPC Contract selection.

Detailed Design and Engineering is to develop all required construction documents


and drawings up to AFC (Approved for Construction) stage for the construction, and
detailed bill of materials (BOM) for the bulk material procurement based on the basic or
front end engineering design (FEED) package. The Detailed Design and Engineering is
limited to verifying design basis but producing all construction drawings after
incorporating vendor information.

Engineering Management is a combining engineering and management skills with


technical expertise to coordinate work in various technical fields including inter-
discipline and external interfaces, and to solve technical issues and problems. The
Engineering Management is focusing on the application of engineering principles for the
effective planning and efficient operations of resources and technology.

Document Review and Approval


A. Document Review and Approval Work Process

B. Definitions

Document is a written information and used for an instruction, communication and


record to identify a document's purpose, determine the appropriate document type. A
type of document is a plan, procedure, contract, specification, report, manual,
calculation, drawing, diagram, list, engineering document, and electronic document, etc.

Document Review and Approval is a project design and engineering work process in
the development of project deliverables, document and drawings. Following initial
document development and the necessary internal check and review processes to
ensure adequate quality it will be released for external review ultimately leading to its
approval. Part of the internal checks includes proper documentation of required design
and controlling steps, assurance of critical safety and alignment with operating
requirements, project specifications whilst ensuring that contract, client and regulatory
requirements are satisfied.

Document Review and Approval Procedure is a project document quality


management work process ensuring that there is an adequate review or approval of
project deliverables which are successfully completed before beginning subsequent
work.

Document Distribution Matrix is a systematic organised matrix for the document and
drawings to be distributed to related person or organisation for their information, review
and approval, record, and use for further actions. The Document Distribution Matrix
includes lists of key project positions or organisations on one side and types of
documents on the other.

Information is a fact of situation, person, event, work or data developed on paper,


electronic, audio, video by word, table, drawing or document which knowledge and data
can be signified understanding of real things or abstract concepts. Information is
meaningful and valuable data that can affect behaviour, a decision, or an outcome, and
lead to an increase in understanding and decrease in uncertainty.

Information Classification is all company information and all information entrusted to


company from other parties for the project can be classified by information sensitivity in
business as: unclassified public information; client confidential information; company
confidential information; proprietary information.
Drawing is a graphical illustration document to explain and demonstrate the final
shapes with dimensions created based on the project specifications and procedures,
and used for design basis drawings (flow diagrams, one-line diagrams, etc.),
manufacturing, fabrication and installation and construction. Type of drawings are
sketch, two-dimensional CAD, three-dimensional CAD and three-dimension model
drawing. They are also used for cost and quantity estimate work.

Approval is 1) an act of endorsing or adding positive authorisation, acceptance or


agreement, or official permission for something; 2) an agreement or consensus on an
activity or output comparing with baselines or contractual requirements by an approver
to proceed a next step of activity, or work defined in project plans and procedures
(Project Execution Plan (PEP) and Document Review and Approval Procedure.

Review is an activity of considering something again in order to make a suitable,


adequate, effective, and efficient way of achieving established objectives.

Document Review and Approval Category is defined by the importance of document


and information that is for information, for review, for approval, and for record. There
are: IFR (Issued for Review), IFA (Issued for Approval), IFD (Issued for Design), FCR
(Issued for Client Review), FCA (Issued for Client Approval), AFD (Approved for
Design), and IFC (Issued for Construction) or AFC (Approved for Construction) aligning
with the work processes completed.

Document Review and Approval Cycle is a period of time frame including a


preparation or development, or update of document in accordance with the document
list (deliverable list), a review and approval work process including a specified review
meeting, and update and re-issue.

C. Document Review and Approval Category

Issued for Information (IFI) means that drawings or documents are issued for
information only. (e.g. Progress Status Reports, Detailed Calculations, etc.)
Issued for Review (IFR) means that drawings or documents are Issued for internal or
external Review (IFR) or Client Review (FCR). (e.g. Project non-critical Document, etc.)

Issued for Approval (IFA) means that documents or drawings are issued for client or
delegated authorised person/ organisation to review and approval to use of them for
further developments or activities. (e.g. Project Critical Document including P&ID, Plot
Plan, etc.)

development of design or used for other disciplines' design.

Approved for Design (AFD) means that drawings or documents are reviewed and
approved by a dedicated and authorised person or organization for use, mainly further
design development, and procurement.

Issued for Construction (IFC) is drawings and documents which are categorized as
the review, and Issued for Construction.

Approved for Constriction (AFC) means that drawings and documents are reviewed
and approved by authorities of internal and external organisations including the client
team members of the construction. A Construction team must use only AFC marked or
stamped drawings and document for the construction works and activities.

Issued for HAZOP (IFH) means that drawings (P&IDs) and documents are issued for
the HAZOP review.

FCA stands for Issued for Client Approval

FCR stands for Issued for Client Review

Modularisation (Modularization)
A, Definition

Module is a set of separated parts from a complete unit or plant, and is a transportable
pre-assembly components of process plant designed to minimise site installation and
commissioning activities and labour costs. Module Types are pre-assembled unit (PAU),
pre-assembled Rack (PAR), pre-assembled building (PAB), and vendor assembled unit
(VAU)

Modular design is an engineering technique that a design of complete unit or plant


divide into smaller units (system or subsystem) with tie-in provisions.

Modularisation (or Modularization) is for difficulties in a skilled labour mobilisation at


the site or remote areas and significantly disadvantages in economics for a traditional
stick built construction method, requires large number of labour, construction equipment
and supporting infrastructures, modularisation method is applicable. Modules are self
contained and operated with essential utility supply. Module design and Engineering
is slightly different form a normal engineering, reinforcement of structures for
transportations and minimize ground spaces are executed, modules are fabricated (pre-
fabricated) or manufactured at the module shop yard, tested, pre-commissioned,
preserved and transported to the site for installation and connection (tie-ins) to other
module or existing facility to complete a unit or plant. Modularisation plan develops in
the beginning of the project, and perform a module design and engineering,
procurement and construction. Optimum Module Size and Inclusions are depend on
a transportation ability for inland and ocean, module erection and handling capacity at
the site, module fabrication yard capacity as well as ability of skilled labour mobilisation
and level of direct cost at the site, and a severity of project such as project duration,
quality, safety and environmental requirement.
In general, a Modularization project is shorter project schedule, but cost is dependent.
