A docking survey should be carried out twice within a 5 year period. The intermediate survey must be completed within 3 years. Preparation for dry dock begins after the ship sails from its previous one. A dry-dock list of new items is created with specification sheets describing individual jobs. These sheets are compiled into a dry dock file which some time before the due date of the docking is submitted to several dry docks for pricing.
As the ship was due in for routine maintenance, one of the main jobs during this maintenance for the electrical department was to replace the Impressed Current Cathodic Protection system. This system suppresses corrosion on the wetted surface of the hull using an arrangement of hull mounted …show more content…
It helps you identify which tasks need to be completed on time for the whole job to be done on time and it also identifies which task can be delayed if resources need to be reallocated to catch up on missed or overrunning task.
The critical path for my project is as shown above. It shows the fastest time (red arrows) it would take to completely remove and replace the Cathelco Anodes and also gives a better understanding of what task need to be completed on time to make sure the job is done and completed on time without any problems.
Indicate the Dummy Task:
The Dummy task for my job is obtaining the Permit to Work and gathering all the tools required to start the job. These two task can be done at the same time as there are two electricians and only one of them was needed to sign the PTW as one of them was assisting. The other Dummy task was making sure everything is isolated and putting up the scaffolding. These two task can be done together at the same time as they are done by two different groups of people. This second group of Dummy task also shows that if there was a delay in gathering the tools or filling the permit to work, the following task would not be affected as it could be started at a later time and would not therefore affect the critical path. This Dummy task helps make the preparation for the job more better and also reduces the amount of time it would take to get the job started.
Describe the Critical Resources:
There were two
Critical path analysis identifies the most efficient and cost effective way of completing a complex project. The various activities which together will make up the project are identified, and the order of these activities are identified. Then, the duration of each activity is estimated and these factors are then arranged as a network or graph, showing the whole project from start to finish, and showing which tasks can happen at the same time. The sequence of tasks which have to be done one after another with no gaps in between is called the Critical Path.
Having deadlines allows you to structure your own deadlines, allowing a certain amount of time on each source of research, so you do not overlook the information of another.
During my tenure with NTB, I have undertaken complex engineering and project work within the boundaries of the Navy Technical Regulatory Framework (NTRF) to successfully deliver technical products and services for the acquisition and sustainment of Minor War Vessels (MWV) for the RAN. In the naval context, these includes specification and validation of compliance with Platform System Requirements for the current and future ships through the development of material specification for maritime capability certification assurance process and provide technical naval system advice to naval community that is accurate, on time and pragmatic.
Deadlines are particularly important to meet when you are a leader of soldiers. Deadlines keep your mind focused on what you need to do and by when. Everything done in the military is based on time and deadlines. Whether is time to eat or get ready for a mission or even just a simple exercise. Reason for this is because setting everything up in a timely manner which helps keep everything organized; meet deadlines, and increase maximum productivity. Time is something that you can’t get back once it’s lost so it’s best to manage your time as much as possible. Each day the in the military in constructed around a time schedule, from the beginning of the day till the end at COB. First of all the military is all about being organized, using time management is the best way to stay completely organized and prioritize task. This way when you have tasked that need to be done you set when they have to be done at a certain time, by who and get it done at that time. This way people aren’t trying to this or try to do that all at the same time, and nothing will ever get done at that designated time with the work divided. With time management you set task #1, task #2, task #3 etc. in a timely manner to ensure each task gets done on time. This also helps keep everything and everyone looking professional as possible and maintain order. The military is all about looking professional and staying well
5. Mooring and pontoon berthing for up to 350 vessels, up to 45ft in length and 2m draft. This will require dredging to a depth of 2.5m to allow access to the pontoons for larger vessels.
Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) means systematic caring, inspecting, and servicing of military equipment to keep it in good condition and to prevent breakdowns. The operator of the vehicle mission is to be sure to perform PMCS each time he/she operate the vehicle. Always do the PMCS in the same order, so it gets to be a habit. Once you've had some practice, you will quickly spot anything wrong.
In almost every business, project management is critically important. The critical path method (CPM) will provide a timeline for the project manager for when tasks should be completed. In addition, providing a deadline and the negative effects it will have on the following successors if not completed on time. These many task are interdepended. Therefore, the CPM provides the start and finishes times of the tasks, and identifies the few tasks on the critical path that the project manager should observe to determine which task needs the most attention. Already discovering and incorporating the details the task or assignments may require, CPM calculates all task times, which can be measured in hours, days, weeks, and months. For any unintended manually input errors, a warning message will be provided. Including an automatic successor generator, task numbering comment, and data validation, makes it easier on the project manager.
construct a network diagram for a project determine critical path and expected completion time of a project with deterministic task times (note: some of us also do calculations for probabilistic times, but not required) calculate slack times for a particular task know how to “crash” a project down to a certain completion time at the lowest cost (note: just the concept of crashing needs to be discussed and not the calculations; some of us do the calculations, others do not)
Having 3 days of delay in electrical can affect the whole project. Therefore, the negotiation of 15 working days would exceed up to 18 days, which could cause the penalty of $300 ($100 per extra day). In order to minimise a project’s critical path, sequencing of tasks should be changed. On the off chance that one can do a project’s tasks in alternate grouping to that initially proposed, one might have the capacity to shorten the critical path. A level of intricacy by striving for shortening the critical path, which is primarily hazardous, is unavoidably acquainted with the task. (Aydar, 2014) With a specific end goal to convey this shorter timescale, the critical path should be controlled
