Abstract

The Engineering Projects Department for BHPBilliton's Iron Ore processing facility located in Port Hedland WA is responsible for delivering capital projects up to $3 million in value and administering the site capital program to the value of up $60 million. The department's primary function is to implement growth and sustaining capital projects to site based stakeholders. The department has traditionally been a poor performer in delivering successful projects when scored against the following criteria: - Project schedule and planning. - Project budgetary constraints. - Project Acceptance by stakeholders. - Project Reporting and stakeholders liaison. - Poor Resource planning. - Failure to complete projects. It is considered that a contributor to the root cause of these project failures is due to the lack of a defined process for progressing projects. This dissertation seeks to define, map and test a process to successfully deliver projects by: - Researching Information on specialist project management processes. - Critically evaluate project management tools and processes with respect to inclusion into a project management manual. - Design a project manual process that provides the user with tools and processes to complete a project that will ensure the user complies with BHPBilliton's Iron Ore financial and commercial governance requirements and delivers successful projects. - Design a suite of tools to apply to the project management process including templates, checklists and process flow diagrams. - Provide a user-friendly guide to the project management process. It will be reported at the conclusion of this dissertation on whether the process developed as a result of this paper has succeeded in improving the delivery of successful projects for the engineering services department.
