Opening Dinner – P1: Moderator: TBA
Keynote: Mike MACSWEEN, Executive Vice President, Major Projects, Suncor (confirmed). Mike is
a Productivity Alberta board member and is heading up PA's energy steering committee, which has a
project called the "Aligned Project Execution Initiative". The goal of the initiative is to create a
framework for collaboration whereby all members of the supply chain benefit.
Project Alignment and Delivery (PAAD) takes a bird’s eye view of industrial projects in Alberta and
takes a look at all aspects involved; from manufacturing to supply chain and construction, accounting
to management and procurement. PAAD is dedicated to discover, measure and address critical
execution and productivity challenges in large-scale energy and construction projects, through
collaboration and demonstration of the best practices.
Previous productivity improvement projects, studies and reports have focused on the elements
that make up large-scale projects, but PAAD takes a holistic approach; This ambitious approach
has the ability to measure project execution at both the macro and micro levels; benchmarking
success against global and internal metrics and working to improve execution across an entire
industry, not just one or two factors.

Mining the Gold. A summation, by the moderators, of the key points uncovered in concurrent session
Advanced Work Packaging and Productivity
Traditionally, contractors face a large amount of rework due to both poor field planning and poor
coordination between engineering and construction. The loss of productivity caused by rework can be
harnessed and turned around if the work packaging process is implemented properly. Early project
planning that integrates work packaging with engineering, procurement, construction, and project
controls increases the probability of the following:
1. The engineering team supports the construction sequence and schedule.
2. Vendor-supplied equipment remains on schedule.
3. Materials are purchased and delivered to support construction.
4. Communication of specific work tasks is improved at the workface, from the
superintendent level through the craft ranks. (Throughout this document the team uses

the term workface; this term is interchangeable with the term work front.)
5. Constraints such as craft availability, material laydown, scaffolding, and IFC drawings
are better managed.
6. Work toward closeout and turnover is better controlled.
The session describes the benefits and provides an overview of this disciplined approach to improving
project productivity and predictability.
