Infographic: Interface Management - The tip of the iceberg for complex projects

Complex Projects often and regularly go over time and budget, we all know that, but like an iceberg often what is below the surface is often larger and more dangerous.  View this Infographic based upon various recent studies to see the truly shocking statistics behind the majority of complex megaprojects.

Global Survey Results Infographic - Untangling the web of project failures

With as many as 2,000 different interfaces running the length and breadth of a capital project, there are plenty of links in the chain of actors, tasks and events that can become misaligned to the detriment of the development as a whole. The inter-meshed realities of global teams and increasingly complex scope have driven 78% of megaprojects worldwide into the costly budget and time overruns that lead to delivery failure.

We recently conducted one of the widest-ranging surveys of its kind. A survey that reached into the facts and figures that underpin the modern world's capital projects and uncovered some alarming, but not altogether unexpected results...

Project Success lies in the Three S's of Interface Management

Large scale infrastructure projects set companies back billions of dollars and can take years to deliver if everything goes to plan. Unfortunately, instances of smooth-running are few and far between.

Recent statistics have shown that as many as 78 per cent of megaprojects experience both cost overruns and delivery delays, with overruns of more than 50 per cent not an uncommon occurrence.

With thousands of interfaces suturing together the multidisciplinary tasks that a megaproject is comprised of, successful delivery can marshalled and expedited at that level. In the following interview, we speak to the man in charge of interface at one of Norway’s most complex subsea projects about how three simple “S” words can set you on the path to achieving your stated goals.

Interface Off - Infographic - Communicating Complexity Cutting Costs

Capital projects in both the commercial and industrial space have become increasingly larger and more complex. The megaproject, defined as any project that costs in excess of $1 billion, is now ubiquitous.

Unfortunately, cost run overs and late delivery are equally constant. With four out of every five oil and gas megaprojects failing to fulfil their objectives, interface management, the activities of defining, controlling, and communicating the information needed to enable projects to succeed, is becoming evermore important.

In conjunction with our community of interface management professionals, the statistics you see rendered in this exclusive infographic tell the story of interface management in the oil and gas industry in the present day…

Improving Project Outcomes with Interface Management: A Case Study

As capital projects grow in scope and complexity, there is increasing demand for improved cost efficiencies and strict adherence to safety requirements in heavy engineering construction. As such, prefabrication and modularisation are becoming preferred modes of construction, allowing project components to be fabricated anywhere in the world by the most qualified and cost effective suppliers and then assembled on-site. However, this new method of construction brings a number of key project management challenges, including:

• Coordinating stakeholders across various geographies, languages, and time zones
• Unique planning, logistics, and project management needs, including interface management
• Ensuring hook-up and commissioning occur in the most logical sequence

With so many stakeholders involved and extremely complex projects to build, interface management (IM) aims to keep all involved stakeholders aligned in order to ensure the safety and integrity of each project subsection, as well as the integrated performance of the project overall.

This case study examines how the assembly of a gas turbine generator (GTG) package was completely derailed by the mismanagement of interface dependencies within that project’s scope. As a result, the construction and launch of an offshore platform went grossly over time and budget and ended up costing the owner potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in production revenue. This study also identifies how interface management could have been applied to this project in order
to reach successful completion of the GTG package as well as the offshore platform project as a whole.

4 out of 5 Oil and Gas Projects Fail. But Why?

We speak to Edward W. Merrow, founder and CEO of Independent Project Analysis, Inc about the startling number of megaprojects that do not hit the mark in the oil and gas industry.

Ed is a recognized expert on the development and execution of large and complex megaprojects and is sought out by Fortune 500 company executives and professionals worldwide. His expertise in megaprojects is built on decades of research on the unique challenges of these complex investments. With the recent surge in megaproject activity across the oil, minerals, and chemical industries in all parts of the world, Ed’s studies are motivated by the industry’s need to develop and execute these projects more successfully in the years ahead.

Interface Management: The Multimillion Dollar Difference

In this exclusive interview, we speak to a seasoned interface management professional on how something as simple as getting communication right and all your ducks in a row can make the multi-million dollar difference between success and failure.

Interface Management – A Picture Paints A Thousand Roles

Over the course of the preceding three decades, capital projects in both the commercial and industrial space have become increasingly larger and more complex. The megaproject, defined as any project that costs in excess of $1 billion, is now ubiquitous. Unfortunately, cost run overs and late delivery are equally constant. With four out of every five oil and gas megaprojects failing to fulfil their objectives, interface management, the activities of defining, controlling, and communicating the information needed to enable projects to succeed, is becoming evermore important.


In the following interview we speak with an experienced systems integration engineer about his time working across the rail sector, and how the lessons learned in this industry can be successfully transferred to other business verticals.
