Registration – PDRI for Manufacturing & Life Sciences Workshop

Project Managers, Planners & Cost Estimators – CII Needs Your Help!

MLS Sector Committee

The Challenge

The Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) for Industrial and Building projects have been highly effective tools for improving scope definition and team alignment for many organizations for over 20 years. However, the manufacturing and life sciences industry has evolved significantly, and a single PDRI tool addressing both industrial and building requirements is needed.

CII’s Manufacturing & Life Sciences sector (MLS) committee has funded an Advanced Development Research team to accelerate continued innovation in front end planning. A new PDRI template has been developed to maximize the effectiveness of PDRI for this sector. Specific areas addressed include:

  • Projects that include industrial and building scope
  • Commissioning, qualification and validation plans
  • Enterprise and control systems
  • Loss prevention considerations
  • IT and communication considerations
  • Air Flow and Instrumentation Diagrams
  • Containment
  • Process and mechanical test plans
  • Facility portfolio coordination
  • Project controls, aligned with the latest CII research

The Opportunity

The PDRI for MLS template is ready for review by industry experts.

The PDRI for MLS Research Team invites professionals from any organization involved in manufacturing & life sciences capital projects, to join one of our upcoming review workshops to help determine which defined elements could have the greatest impact on the overall project success through a weighting of each element.
