In any project particularly the large ones, numbering procedures and specification is a very important document. This document makes or breaks the success of automation and the implementation of maintenance and replacement programs during plant operations. Getting this procedure right during the early stage of the project is crucial. Failing to do so has a massive impact later in the project or during operations to amend the document to make it fit for purpose.
This is happening to our current project. One of the client's senior managers mentioned in an argument during a project meeting, that there is nothing wrong with the specification, it is the interpretation that got a problem. He added that someone needs to take the initiative to interpret the document and explain to every team member for them to fully understand. In that way, every team member will be on the same perspective saving the company time and money during the project execution.
