role of mechanical engineer in project management

what is the role of mechanical engineer in project management? there are many role of mechanical engineer in project management. A mechanical engineer has higher opportunity to get various role compare to other engineering disciplines.  Project usually start with FEED and end with commissioning or “Put In Service” and then project close out. In FEED – Front End Engineering design, Process engineers will be the key person. they will make the grand design and calculate input & out parameters like flow rate of main material until product capacity. the project deliverable is a set of Process Flow Diagrams (PFD) Role of mechanical engineer in project management – Detail engineering phase in detail engineering phase, project team will have many groups. they will develop PID, equipment package, equipment engineering design, Piping classes, bill of material etc. A mechanical engineer may contribute as  Piping engineer or Pipeline engineer who design process piping[…]

how to develop Project Management – Stage 1

Develop Project Management Some mechanical engineer pursue his career in project management. Usually, he start it as Project Engineer and after having enough experienxe and exposure, he finish as Project Manager. There are 5 general stage in project management. First stage is define project opportunity. At this stage, we explore about why we run this project, what is the project’s visions of success etc. For example, we have heat exchanger (shell and tube type) problem. Water in shell side and chemical in tube side.  Found tube leakage, water from shell side go through tube side created chemical and water mixture. Chemical purity decreased, its performance decreased affect to production decrease. project management stage 1 The project stage 1 is developed. Project team will repair heat exchanger. By doing tube replacement, it will increase chemical purity and production capacity untill 100% normal capacity. This project will generate production increase equal to 1,000[…]
