Future Work Plan Activities for Transport in the Evaluate stage
The objective is to clarify future work plan specifics in line with the project development approach and to list all cost and schedule implications.
- Level 3 Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for all future works scope identifying responsibilities within each WBS element
- High level cost estimate for all elements of the WBS with a list of cost savings opportunities
- A more developed Level 3 programme highlighting critical path activities, potential hold points and critical inputs. Responsibilities shall be identified for all task and statutory approval processes indicated where applicable
- High level resource plan for all elements of the WBS identifying where resource levelling will be beneficial
Key tasks include:
- Identify all future works scope
- Establish appropriate time frames and dependencies
- Identify activities on the Critical path(s)
- Recognise potential hold points that may stop or slow down future projects’ progress
- Identify tasks which have to go through a statutory approval process
- Identify tasks that could be accelerated
- Estimate cost outlines and establish potential cost savings
- Assess critical inputs the successful project delivery is depending on
- Identify resource requirements
- Assess where resources can be levelled
The Work Breakdown Structure shall effectively decompose the future works scope into delivery elements that will be used to structure all project related activities. Every element within the WBS will be assigned with responsibilities.
On the basis of the existing future works schedule activities with zero or close to zero days float will be closely assessed for impact on project delivery, dependencies and responsibilities.
Hold points and critical inputs will be identified and further assessed to prepare for all potential project scenarios. In the process of the further development of the schedule opportunities for acceleration will be identified and discussed.
The existing resource plan will be assessed for opportunities to level resources to have a cost effective and constant requirement of labour hours.
A Value Engineering workshop will close the Evaluation Phase with the identification of potential savings in the existing cost estimate.
