Sponsored by the C&Q and HVAC Communities of Practice.

Outlining risk-based methodologies for planning and implementing a project through the entire lifecycle, this seminar includes case studies and workshops to help you gain a working knowledge of the ISPE Baseline® Guide, Vol. 12: Science and Risk-Based Approach for the Delivery of Facilities, Systems, and Equipment. It is anticipated that the Guide will be provided either at the conference, or subsequently if publish date is delayed.

The seminar will outline risk based methodologies for planning and implementing a project through the entire life cycle. The two-day seminar will feature the newest concepts and exemplify their applications in a way that you can use in your company.

  • How to incorporate Quality Risk Management (QRM) principles (e.g., QbD, risk assessments, control strategies, product/process knowledge, etc.) into C&Q activities and deliverables (e.g., requirements definition, design review, C&Q planning, verification, test and release)
  • Real-world implementation of risk-based approaches to fit your companies needs (efficient use of commissioning data and vendor documentation based on identified risk factors)
  • Managing and documenting engineering/project change
  • Verification processes for demonstrating fit-for-intended use
  • Understanding, defining, and assigning roles and responsibilities for a risk-based project

Come and participate in discussions with the guide writers, case study presenters, and your colleagues who also intend to implement this new approach. For those less experienced, an introductory webinar will be made available to you at no additional charge, upon request, so that you can better take advantage of this intermediate to advanced seminar.

How You Will Benefit

  • At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Understand and apply QRM principles to C&Q
  • Deliver projects more efficiently using lean risk-based applications
  • Understand how to apply risk-based principles within your organization based on knowledge obtained through case studies and workshops
  • Understand regulatory perspectives and expectations
  • Analyze applications through case studies and how this knowledge can be applied to your company
  • Gain insights into problem solving by applying concepts in the Guide.

    Continuing Education Units 

    ISPE will provide continuing education units (ISPE CEUs) for all North American seminars and courses, including educational programming at the ISPE Annual Meeting. CEUs are nationally recognized units of achievement designed for those individuals continuing their education in their chosen field or profession.

    Delegates attending European seminars and courses will receive a Certificate of Attendance, as ISPE CEUs are currently not offered at European events. Verification of CEUs is based on attendance as well as satisfactory completion of all evaluation materials. Statements of credit will be sent via email within four weeks of evaluation materials. One hour of education programming equals 0.1 ISPE CEU credits.
