ABOUT THE BOOK
Fundamentals of Project Planning and Engineering oﬀers comprehensive and practical information to engineering students. It will serve as a database for all those who need to refer to it for a proper understanding of project management concepts. Therefore, this book incorporates the principles of project engineering namely - Need, Vision, and Delivery. This book also covers industrial application and practical problems of detail engineering design. It gives complete and concise information on every topic of the subject, which has so far never been available in consolidated form. The simple language, collective information and case study examples are a unique feature of this book.
This book will be of great help to students where a course on Project, Planning and Engineering is included in the syllabus. All chapters include specific explanations with a relevant block and schematic diagrams. The book has made an attempt to cover the industrial standards and practices followed for project execution by a project team, and project management and engineering documents produced by the instrumentation discipline. The chapters have been arranged in chronological order so that one goes from the definition of a project to project implementation and the project planning and engineering life cycle is divided into ten chapters for proper understanding and implementation. This book will be useful to all engineering students, graduate engineers, and practicing engineers. It will help in gaining a proper understanding of project concepts and engineering activities, which will help to expedite the installation and construction phases of any project.
It will also be useful to installation and construction teams for the installation, mechanical completion, pre-commissioning and commissioning activities.
