FEL Front End Loading Project Definition Feasibility capital project planning best practice

Front End Loading (FEL) is the process by which an organisation develops a detailed definition of a capital project to meet business objectives. It is the detailed up-front "loading" work whereby the definition, scope and feasibility of the project is thoroughly assessed in terms of scope, cost, risk and other factors to minimise the impact and escalation of these factors during the detailed design, procurement and construction of the project. The successful outcome of capital project delivery is heavily reliant on the pre-planning work to minimise risks and costs during detailed design and construction. Included during this front end loading are other best practices such as contracting strategies, value improvement practices, constructability, planning for start-up and other.
