Carve for Commissioning & Operational Readiness
Carve for Commissioning & Operational Readiness is the first assessment of its kind in the industry based on research from the Construction Industry Institute (CII).
The Commissioning & Operational Readiness Assessment is a methodology designed to support project teams in the early identification of commissioning and startup gaps and hot spots that must be addressed to ensure a successful transition through each phase:
|1. Detailed Design||4. Commissioning|
|2. Construction||5. Startup|
|3. Pre-commissioning||6. Close-out|

Structure of the Assessment
The assessment consists of a series of readiness factors grouped by phase. As factors are assessed, comments and action items are captured where gaps exist. There are two specialized factor types, Hot Spots and Ongoing Factors.
Hot Spots: Factors identified as commonly problematic, higher risk, and a contributor to schedule delays if not addressed in a timely manner. These factors have a higher weighting within the calculation of the Transition Readiness score.
Ongoing Factors: Factors that have related activities or deliverables that must be performed continually to
maintain project alignment and transition readiness.
The Commissioning & Operational Readiness Assessment results provide project leaders with a clear summary of key points to help their team focus their efforts and ensure readiness for Commissioning & Startup, including:
- Transition readiness % by phase
- Transition readiness % by category
- Missing factors & hot spots
- Action items
