Project Management

xing wei services project management

Project execution within the offshore industry is often subjected to extreme datelines and workload whereby every decision can drastically affect the project.

Our project management personnel are highly experienced, with relevant backgrounds in the fields of the offshore design, construction and installation. This ensures that we find the right solution for our client as cost-effectively as possible. Project personnel will always exercise due dilligence, ensuring projects will be completed on time and within budget and that appropriate contingencies are in place.

In addition our systematic approach to the project ensures that our assignments are managed in a consistent and effective way. Scope of work, milestones dates and critical success factors are documented and carefully managed, along with constraints such as budgets and targets.

Our experiences in project management range from new building, conversion to engineering projects and studies. Work can be performed on behalf of the Client whether it’s a Ship Owner, Oil Company or a Shipyard. Our people have successfully performed projects in compliance with customer requirements as well as Classification and Authorities rules and regulations.

We strongly believed that Project control is essential for the success of all projects. Planning, monitoring and interface control are all factors which can drastically affect project results. These areas are also high dependable on routines, procedures and each individuals experience and expertise

As a part of our management system, each project will have an execution plan including the following:

•    Organization & Resource Schedule
•    Master Schedule
•    Reporting Format
•    Responsibility Matrix
•    QA & HSE Plans
•    Structural Completion Schedule
•    Mechanical Completion Schedule
•    Electrical Completion Schedule
•    FAT & Pre-Commissioning Schedule
•    Commissioning Schedule
•    Start-up Procedures
•    Hand-over Procedures

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a procedure for analysis of potential failure modes within a system for classification by severity or determination of the effect of failures on the system.

The DP FMEA philosophy is to gain a clear understanding of the safest mode of operation for the vessel. Main objectives of the DP FMEA are to

  • Understand the worst case failure
  • Understand the vessel’s station keeping capabilities following the worst case failure
  • Identify significant single point failures ( if any) of the DP system
  • Identify the configuration for the safest mode of operation
  • Validation of technical suitability
  • Ensure contingency plans or operational interventions are in place

It is a general requirement of many national and international standards that FMEA is used in evaluating product integrity. FMEA is also one of the most widely used methods in system reliability. FMEA are normally carried out in a top down method and can identify failure modes in a system. Once this is completed, a FMEA can be used¬¬¬ to improve overall reliability and avoid failure and determine how these critical failures can be minimized or eliminated.  

By establishing the various failures, these scenarios can be tested out in proving trials to confirm the results. Recommended actions or compensating provisions are then made to reduce the likelihood of the occurrence and mitigate the risk.

Advantages of a FMEA includes:

  1. Aids in the initial design & helps determine changes to design specification
  2. Develops a list of potential failure modes ranked according to their effect on the customer. Establishes a priority system for design         improvement
  3. Helps determine if the level of redundancy is sufficient
  4. Identifies potential failure mode caused by the interfacing of various equipment
  5. Assess the effects of the failure and resultant effect to the end user

DP Annual Trial

The purpose of the DP Annual trial is to improve safety and performance by reducing risk. The DP Annual Trial ensures that the DP system is maintained in good working condition by systematic testing of all important systems and components of a DP system. Focus is placed on verifying the conditions from the failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) that are difficult or impossible to verify by any other method. Periodic and managed testing will ensure that within a five year period, all FMEA test programmes/procedures will be completed.

Xing Wei provides comprehensive marine surveying services to meet the varied needs of our clients. Our location in Singapore makes it easy to access vessels and surveys within Asia. Xing Wei can also act on behalf of the owner, charterer or shipyard to verify proper documentation and in compliance to classification and authorities rules and regulations.
