Fast track modifications l.jpg
Fast Track Modifications

  • Plant changes are the biggest exposure to the health of a station’s CM program

  • Plants have strong processes and controls around ‘normal’ modifications

  • Often are challenged to accelerate this process to get a modification developed and implemented quickly (a fast track modification)

  • Higher risk of errors, near misses, and CM issues exist from this type of modification.

Fast Track Modifications

  • A plant change that is scoped, designed, planned, installed and tested all in a very short time frame.

  • Typically in response to an emergent degraded plant condition or to address a new regulatory requirement or discovered non-compliance.

  • Poses challenges to human performance and Configuration Management


Human performance challenges l.jpg
Human Performance Challenges

  • Engineer Fatigue

  • Lack of attention-to-detail

  • Working to assumptions that were not or could not be validated

  • Inadequate peer reviews

  • Imprecise or incomplete communications among project team members

  • Inadequate vendor oversight

  • Inadequate post-mod training (operators, maintenance personnel)


Cm challenges l.jpg
CM Challenges

  • Insufficient inputs to design (wrong solution)

  • Incomplete designs

  • Latent errors introduced

  • Overlooked impacted FCI sources

  • Concurrent design/ installation

  • Insufficient planning of installation

  • Installation problems requiring design rework

  • Inadequate post-installation testing


Logistics challenges l.jpg
Logistics Challenges

  • Material availability/ expediting

  • Lack of qualified workers (engrs/ craft)

  • System availability


How to mitigate risks l.jpg
How to Mitigate Risks

  • Requires a disciplined approach; can’t let schedule drive process

  • Need to recognize and address potential error traps

  • Develop special actions to mitigate identified risks.

  • Breakout Session: Looking for industry best practices to improve performance in Fast Track modifications
