Operational Excellence

The Engagement:

The $600 Million Estimate 

The Challenge to the Project:

This particular client wanted to increase market share in the Latin American region (more specifically in Brazil).


Our Solution:

PE4U acted as an extension of the estimating team. We worked with the estimating team to arrive at a +/- 10% estimate. We also assisted in the estimate transfer. The estimate transfer is where we do a final "scrub" of the estimate before it is the official project budget. 


Schedule Detail:

The project schedule was slated for 36 months. That this point in the project we had a level 1 and level 2 schedule. 

Cost Impacts:

This was a major project for our client. The initial estimate showed about $600 million in cost expenditures. 


Risks Impacts:

Multiple risk impacts were identified. Currency fluctuation, governmental interference, qualified labor shortage, multiple logistic challenges.

A significant portion of the estimate involved a risk budget.  

Project Outcome:

Mission Accomplished

Our client provided a more competitive estimate to their client (Petrobras) than their competitors. Our client was awarded the project verbally by their client. 

This is another example of our many successes.
