Michael compares to the pharmaceutical industry:
“If the pharmaceutical industry does not plan its production and does not test its drugs before it goes on the market, it will have catastrophic consequences for the affected people. Likewise I see the commissioning of the technical facilities in our hospitals. Unless we carefully plan and test all the systems before commissioning, it may cause one or more systems to malfunction or cables to be suddenly shorted.”
According to Michael Hyllegaard, both the regions and the hospital management see the importance of good planning and commissioning. Niras is responsible for commissioning the project.
“The commissioning department has always been part of our construction projects, without being named. That is nothing new under the sun. However, the designation has made it a clear and documented process that we can use to improve the quality and safety of the buildings.”
A risk analysis optimizes the schedule
Martin Veis Marxen, Exigo, says:
“We ran a risk analysis of the schedule and quickly found that there were made no changes to the schedule. The moving in and commissioning would be delayed for many months. We have optimized the schedule so that most of the settings and testing of equipment has been moved to before shipment. At the same time, we streamlined the commissioning activities, which saw many start-stops. Many smaller tasks had an unnecessarily long duration, which delayed the entire schedule. We used location-based planning to plan across zones and discover and balance resource consumption.”
