9781405187251: Process Plant Construction: A Handbook for Quality Management

This handbook introduces engineers, project and construction managers, and senior technicians to a methodology for the management of quality on a process plant construction site.

The eleven chapters of the handbook define the roles and appellations of the parties involved in a project as well as outlining the fundamental strategic and contractual orientations to be decided. The ISO 9000 series of standards are examined within the context of the process plant construction site. A study is then made of the roles of the organizations involved and of the interfaces between them. Special attention is given to document and materiel control, followed by a review of the various monitoring and feedback systems to keep the project on track moving towards the ultimate goal of satisfactory construction completion leading to turnover. Model procedures are proposed, complete with forms attached, and a number of case studies are included to illustrate the practical application of the principles presented.

Process Plant Construction: a handbook for quality management is completed by appendices covering Civil Works & Buildings, Mechanical Equipment, HVAC, Welding, Structural Steelwork, Piping, Electrical Installation, Instrumentation & Control, Painting, and Thermal Insulation. Each appendix, aimed at the non-specialist, presents briefly for the discipline concerned the nature of the works likely to be met on site, evokes the parties involved and highlights quality issues to be addressed. Typical inspection and test programs are outlined.
