We keep forward momentum by guessing missing information and later revising things when new info becomes known. Using the Project Control Specs issued to all disciplines at the start of the project we electrical designers "guessed" the motor sizes (kW ratings) by extrapolating from similar functions on the existing plant. Using this speculative information we went ahead and prepared our design drawings. The procurement people got bids from switchboard suppliers and placed orders. As the actual motor sizes were firmed up by the process engineers and this information issued to us we revised our drawings.

This was an ongoing process until the switchboards we (...) Read more? Sign up for free
