Introduction to the Construction Readiness Assessment

whitePaper | February 9, 2021

Construction projects have always faced pressure to begin early mobilization of the construction phase which can result in out-of-sequence work leading to cost and schedule overruns. The decision to proceed with construction requires a standard, objective process that easily identifies the gaps that must be addressed to achieve construction readiness and supports the decision of when to move forward. CII's Construction Readiness Assessment is a game-changer to guide project teams in achieving construction readiness with confidence. Their research shows that construction-ready projects outperform projects that are not ready with 20% better cost performance and 22% better schedule performance2.

SIMPLIFYING MODEL-BASED SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

whitePaper | June 23, 2022

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and often abused acronyms in the engineering vernacular. Many companies struggle to understand how it will improve their entire product lifecycle and address the ever-increasing complexity of products. In many companies, executives and middle management experience a lack of understanding regarding the rapid pace of today’s technology and its impact on organizations and processes. Technical practitioners may gain additional insight as they focus their energies on establishing strong MBSE practices. The successful implementation of MBSE includes transformations and enhancements in three key areas: organization, process and technology. This white paper shares proper planning and implementation considerations in adopting an MBSE practice. It provides a high-level view, defines critical components to help success and identifies many problematic areas to avoid in an implementation journey.
