The Engineering Projects Department for BHPBilliton's Iron Ore processing facility located in Port
Hedland WA is responsible for delivering capital projects up to $3 million in value and
administering the site capital program to the value of up $60 million. The department's primary
function is to implement growth and sustaining capital projects to site based stakeholders.
The department has traditionally been a poor performer in delivering successful projects when
scored against the following criteria: - Project schedule and planning. - Project budgetary constraints. - Project Acceptance by stakeholders. - Project Reporting and stakeholders liaison. - Poor Resource planning. - Failure to complete projects.
It is considered that a contributor to the root cause of these project failures is due to the lack of a
defined process for progressing projects.
This dissertation seeks to define, map and test a process to successfully deliver projects by: - Researching Information on specialist project management processes. - Critically evaluate project management tools and processes with respect to inclusion into a project management manual. - Design a project manual process that provides the user with tools and processes to complete
a project that will ensure the user complies with BHPBilliton's Iron Ore financial and
commercial governance requirements and delivers successful projects. - Design a suite of tools to apply to the project management process including templates, checklists and process flow diagrams. - Provide a user-friendly guide to the project management process.
It will be reported at the conclusion of this dissertation on whether the process developed as a result
of this paper has succeeded in improving the delivery of successful projects for the engineering
services department.
