Ergonomics and Needs Analysis
Both new and upgrade projects require thorough planning and needs an analysis phase, which will ultimately determine the value add of the implemented solution. In order for the conceptulisation phase of a project to be effective, input is required from all the key stakeholders whithin the client’s organisation.
Control Room Conceptual Design
Oculus considers the conceptulisation of the control room as the most critical and crucial aspect in the design process. Dueto the lifespan of a control room, typically 15 – 20 years. Its imperative that the conceptual phase reviews the various design aspects in order to eliminate poor design issues that are impossible to rectify post-installation.
Control Room Detail Design
The detailed design phase of the process details all aspects of the design to enable the construction of the project. Detail design is performed using CAD tools, computer models and dedicated tools for the various aspects of design.
Control Room Installation & Construction
This phase comprises the supply and installation of the control room equipment. Typically the supply & installation of the control room upgrade is executed during the continuous operation of the plant, therefore extensive project management and co-ordination is vital for successful execution.
The successful execution of projects relies on a professional project management approach. Oculus provides services covering project management, planning and scheduling of the project.
