OR&A Process

OR&A is a continuous process that is implemented from the earliest point in a project, ending after a successful handover to the asset custodian is achieved.

The OR&A process is implemented through a number or 'phases' and milestones (the same as those used by the Project). The OR&A Plan is then aligned with the Integrated Project Plan (IPP) to ensure the right information is available at the right time to produce the required deliverables.

Typically, an OR&A Plan takes several man-months to develop ...

... but using the OR& Solution it takes less than 5 minutes!!

This saves MORE money than the cost of deploying the OR&A Solution for the entire first year!

Involvement of the operations team as early as possible in the project ensures that critical decisions can be validated during the project concept, incorporating Lessons Learned and Best Practice examples from earlier projects and avoiding many of the mistakes often made in the pre-feed and early design phases when practical operational experience is often overlooked.

The application of the 'Flawless' process within OR&A can also reduce the repetition of flaws, risks and issues experienced in earlier projects.

OR&A requires a robust process to be adopted and deployed by the Asset Owner to monitor and control the development of the Asset Organisation and all the necessary component parts, to ensure Readiness to Operate is achieved prior to handover of ownership to the Asset Organisation.

The robust process developed by OR&A Ltd. is called the 'OR&A Solution'.

The OR&A Solution connects the Project Team activities to the real-life concerns of the Operations Team to ensure the operability, maintainability and availability of the asset enables them to generate the necessary production revenue and make the asset economically viable.
