As a result of a collaboration with Graham Horrell, an experienced Refinery and Petrochemical Project Manager this Process facilities version of the Project Engineer's Toolkit is now available to provide you with readily usable tools and techniques for performing your own responsibilities as a Project Engineer. As the Onshore Process Facilities Industry strives for increased effectiveness and efficiency, it is important that we work smarter, not harder. Book Layout The book is split into 3 main sections: Soft Skills Soft skills are vital for a Project Engineer who will spend a significant part of his/her time dealing with people of various backgrounds, competencies and attitudes. Based on sound techniques these skills can be developed and practiced to great effect. Core Project Management This section explores the core project management competencies associated with Process Facilities Project Engineering and uses actual documentation examples to explain how to manage these areas. The Engineering Disciplines This section demystifies the Engineering Disciplines and provides insight from a Project Engineers viewpoint. These chapters will allow you to understand the work processes for each discipline, plus the inputs and the outputs so that you will be more effective in integrating all the engineering elements into your projects scopes. Influences on the content Content has been influenced by the following three main sources: 30+ years Project Engineering/Management Experience Having worked as a Project Engineers/Managers for over 30 year much hard won experience has been gained which has resulted in developing techniques that work in the "real world" Projects environment. Project Management Bodies of Knowledge As a member of the PMI and previously APM since 1999 projects have been run using the principles contained in the project management industry books of knowledge. Many of these principles have been used in development of this book. Toastmasters International The skills and techniques in leadership and communication are influenced heavily from active membership of Toastmasters International for over 13 years. Toastmasters is a worldwide organisation of over 350,000 members promoting development of both leadership and communication skills. These techniques have been adapted for the requirements of Project Engineering within Process Industry engineering contractors.
