Introduction to the Commissioning & Operational Readiness Assessment

The next step in project assurance for capital projects.


It’s no secret that the transition from construction to operations is where the highest leakage of business value occurs.

In this webinar, Valency will introduce Carve for Commissioning & Operational Readiness – a standardized assessment methodology that enables organizations to quantify their transition readiness through each phase of commissioning and startup (CSU).

We will share how Construction Industry Institute’s (CII) industry leading research on commissioning and startup has been put into practice, and how you can get started with the Commissioning & Operational Readiness Assessment on your next project.

We will walk through a case study project using Carve for Commissioning & Operational Readiness and how you can achieve immediate results with your projects to increase schedule certainty.
