A. Class of Facility Quality:


Facility specification can vary greatly for good reason. For a new and uncertain market, it may be appropriate to choose the lowest  investment parameters. On the other hand, expansion of an existing production line might require incorporation of state-of-the-art plant and lower maintenance costs, thus dictating higher initial investment costs. Such decisions have a significant impact on subsequent design actions.


Typically, many large organizations have adopted different categories of characteristics and governing standards and specifications for a set of categories of facility quality and performance. These characteristics often include aspects such as reliability, product quality, process flexibility, operability, maintainability, life of plant & equipment, appropriate expandability. Each critical section of the facility has its own designated class of facility and is designed and constructed accordingly.

The TEAM FOCUS Group Value and Risk Management approach is an excellent framework for conducting the Class of Facility Quality VIP for best results.
