COURSE DESCRIPTION
The course provides extensive knowledge of Interface Management and how it influences the overall life-cycle of project management on oil, gas and energy mega-projects, both the Greenfield & Brownfield field. Interface Management augments safety and saves money projects, is an integral part of overall project management, and a mechanism to manage internal and external interfaces.

The types of interfaces are Tangible or Hard “Technical”, Intangible or Soft, Execution, and Organizational (Critical) Interfaces. The Interface Management encompasses all the ten Facets of “PMBOK” Project Management, which includes Integration, Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, SC, HR, Communications, Risk, and Stakeholder Managements.

Interface Management processes ensure prompt, regimented and documented mode of coordination amongst the disciplines, entities and project team called the Work-groups (WG’s.) The Client-Operators, EPCI Companies and Certification Agencies all conclude that an ineffective Interface Management is one of the major root-causes of budget over-runs and schedule delays, and also impacting the Safety and Quality issues. An effective interface management ensures project scope completion, delivery on budget and on-time to the satisfaction of project stakeholders. Also it reviews how interface management enhances the Concurrent Engineering process, its multi-discipline design & engineering performed concurrently on mega-projects.

The course also includes a case-study of team-work for oil and gas mega-project via web-based “COREWORX Interface Management” module, with a guest SME attendance. Conclusion of the course is to review Path Forward, compile Lessons Learned, conduct Q&A Session, and finally distribute the certificates to attendees.

PREREQUISITE
Medium to high level knowledge of project management but not necessary on Oil, Gas and Energy projects, most suited for refreshing their approach by the Project Managers, Interface Managers, Engineering Project Managers, and Project Controls Managers, but very essential for highly communicative young discipline engineers shooting to be the Project/Program Managers and CEO’s of tomorrow.

PURPOSE OF COURSE
The purpose of this course is to enhance the awareness and importance of interface management on oil, gas and energy mega-projects to control the budget over-runs and schedule delays, which have huge negative impact on safety and quality as well.
