An area of ongoing query is around accurately scoping projects to minimise "Scope creep".
Scope creep is when projects have additional areas/equipment/detail put under its umbrella after project approval that put pressure on the project timeline and budget.
While the scoping of projects can be an arduous process, with multitudes of options down every path, it can be a mind bending, time consuming & problem ridden process.
While there are multiple physical options (from size of site to what size pump to use to pump your product) there are the intangible options to consider - which is the most reliable, who/what can you trust & what preference and options do various stakeholders consider important?
One typical way to avoid scope creep is to delay projects while ALL options and perspectives are taken in during scoping, which for a lot of food manufacturers is not possible as there are enormous time constraints on the delivery of new products.
At RMR Process, we do things differently. We know the food industry so we understand the options that are available to you and can put these to you up front. Our background knowledge means we know who to talk to for quick, straight-up answers while also considering the additional implications and considerations for the various options (i.e. Lets chill it faster - get a larger chiller - that means a larger footprint and/or roof height and larger refrigeration gear - what refrigeration system is best for my application? Can the electrical supply handle the increased demand or does that need to be upgraded as well?)
We can work with you to scope projects and specify equipment in an accurate, encompassing & fast method so that you can get to your end goal faster, knowing it will meet the project goals and work first time.
Call RMR Process to find out how and why we do things differently.
