Decisions made during the Design, Construction and Commissioning phase such as reliability, maintainability, logistics and operating concepts will influence our clients’ life cycle costs. One of GRRS’s aims is to provide either a second or third eye and act as an independent reviewer (of the design). GRRS ideal intent is to be involved in the initial stages rather than arriving at the site well after it was designed, bought, installed and commissioned. For the maximum benefit to our clients, GRRS hope to use its expertise and be in a position to request a cost of ownership evaluation from our clients’ suppliers/manufacturers of equipment. Being late onto the scene would mean inheriting any future problems that may be due to lack of foresight in the decisions made.
The success, high production or efficient service delivery at the minimum costs, during the operation/Support phase is determined during the Design, Construction and Commissioning phase. The Operation/Support phase is where about 80% of the cost of running an operation or delivering a service will be incurred.
