Once an optimised project plan has been selected, implementation and then operational phases are the next steps in the project cycle. Implementation involves the setup of a project taking care to ensure that all of the necessary resources are in place for the project to initiate operations. The management of these steps is supported by feedback from a monitoring and control system based on a real time audit system. Typical actions supported by Navatec include:
  • Implementation

    • The organization of equipment procurement
    • The identification, negotiation and contracting of additional personnel where required
    • Environmental set up
    • Commissioning/testing of equipment
    • Operator training

  • Operations

    • Operations initiation
    • Bringing operational performance up to the benchmarks established in the design phase
    • Monitoring progress with Real Time Audit
    • Adjusting for any unexpected changes detected in a graceful manner by:
      • generating instant Logical Process Options (LPOs)
      • using LPOs as a precise guide to appropriate decision-making
    • Documenting all activities
    • Ongoing analysis and reporting as required

The main causes of disruption in a project's implementation are:
  • unexpected changes in conditions
  • personnel leaving the lender, donor or project team group
In both cases reference to the Accumulog as a cumulative project memory help guide decisions according to the type of change and, in the case of personnel leaving the group, the substitutes and replacements have access to a very detailed source of relevant knowledge to come up to speed.
