Project Execution Planning

Following onto project structuring, the project that moves into execution must be planned in detail e g where the structuring will indicate the general strategy for outsourcing, contract allocation and route to market, the execution planning is required to provide the next level of detail, such as WBS freeze for both cost and planning, preparing the control budget with definitions of contingency usage and minimum requirements for budget adjustments. The procurement operating plan (POP) must be moved into specifically defined packages with a package numbering system, approval policies and vendor list process and policy; all to be integrated with the defined time planning and programme approvals, cashflow management and ensuring that take-over and operational readiness is defined, and adequately planned to bring the intended mine and/or plant into operation.

The project rhythm of meetings and reporting and associated documentation, must be clearly described and the forums and chairing appointments be made. This includes elements such as shareholders engagement and steering committee or other oversight forums.
