Primary Author: Mr H Lance Stephenson CCC Enbridge Pipeline Inc.

Audience Focus: Intermediate
Application Type: Experience-Based
Venue: 2012 AACE International Annual Meeting, San Antonio, TX, USA

Abstract: The Project Controls Plan (PCP) provides the membership of AACE International with a guideline to improve the communication among stakeholders involved with preparing, evaluating, and use of project controls information. The time invested in preparing, documenting, and communicating a solid project controls plan will increase the success of the execution of the project. The recommended practice defines the overall development and implementation of a project controls plan. The purpose of the project controls plan should include, in part:
  • A plan to implement an integrated set of work processes, procedures and applications to plan, monitor, execute and control the work. The AACE TCM Framework will provide the basis for general work processes.
  • A plan to implement an integrated suite of applications (systems).
  • A plan to identify the roles, responsibilities, and accountabilities for the Project Controls Team members.
  • A plan to produce the Project Control Deliverables.
This recommended practice and presentation will provide the audience with an understanding of the Project Controls Plan (PCP) for the purpose of assisting individuals and organizations in developing a narrative document that describes specific processes, procedures, tools and systems that guide and support effective project control.
