Common Cx roadblocks
There are several mistakes a commissioning agent can make that will create roadblocks in the commissioning process.
Failure to engage the Cx agent early in the project
Failure to identify engineering roles
Failure to get schedule buy-in from the contractor to align the Cx schedule with construction schedule/delivery date
Failure to validate scripts from all parties
- Lack of experience with current technologies (which might cause confusion in procedure/scripts, resulting in unanticipated downtime and affecting the construction schedule).
