CII is celebrating 35 years of improving how we perform construction. Pharmaceutical Sector VP Rob Brown and Technical Director Craig Relyea will be stationed at booth #109 during the networking breaks throughout the conference from July 23 – 25, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Additionally, Craig will present how the Manufacturing and Life Sciences (MLS) sector took existing CII research through a process called “Advanced Development,” developing a new Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) tool specifically for manufacturing industry capital projects. The new tool can be used to handle the more complex elements of these capital projects. The PDRI was developed to help owners, developers, designers, and contractors to better achieve business, operational, and project objectives during the FEP phase. The PDRI process provides a forum for all project participants to communicate and reconcile differences using an objective tool as a common basis for project scope evaluation. The central premise for PDRI is that teams should be working on the right project in a collaborative manner (alignment) and performing the right work (scope definition) during pre-project planning, and that complete scope definition improves project performance in cost, schedule, and operational status. The new PDRI for MLS tool captures the key elements from the older versions, plus adds several new elements to improve the tool for use for industrial manufacturing projects. Craig and the MLS team will be presenting on Wednesday afternoon at 1 P.M.
CII is a consortium of more than 130 leading owner, engineering-contractor, and supplier firms from both the public and private arenas. These organizations have joined together to enhance the business effectiveness and sustainability of the capital facility life cycle through CII research, related initiatives, and industry alliances. The annual CII Conference has thousands of attendees who gather each year to learn about the latest topics affecting the industry such as automation, population impacts on manufacturing, how to be an influencer, and vertical integration.
