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, can provide access to all analyses completed on required decisions according to the type of change. In the case of personnel leaving the group, the substitutes and replacements have access to the detailed documentation of the whole design process, optimization and final project logic as a source of all of the relevant knowledge necessary to come up to speed.
