2 day

In-person workshop to be held at the Stanford University campus for participants to present their project application results and learn from peers

Program Outcomes

Create a new and modern project delivery mindset rooted in Operations Science and project production systems thinking rather than conventional and outdated project administration.

Apply the science of operations using technology to effectively map, model, simulate, analyze, optimize, control, and improve project production systems – create digital twins.

Identify hidden performance improvement opportunities in real projects that would not be able to be exposed through conventional practices.

Who Should Enroll

Professionals responsible for the delivery of capital programs and projects including engineering, fabrication and offsite assembly, construction, commissioning, maintenance operations and associated support functions.

Overview

The next wave of innovation in the global engineering and construction industry combines the effective application of operations science together with leading-edge technology as the means to achieve radically better project performance.

The Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD), the Stanford Center for Integrated Facilities Engineering (CIFE) and the Project Production Institute (PPI) are collaborating to accelerate industry adoption and create impact beyond what is currently thought possible.

  1. A five-day and in-person introductory workshop that includes interactive sessions and hands-on experiences including labs

  2. A six-month period of application of what was learned during the introductory workshop on a real-life work project including monthly check-ins with insights and guidance provided by Stanford / PPI program mentors

  3. A two-day in-person workshop to be held at the Stanford University campus for participants to present their project application results and learn from peers

Through this journey, participants will be able to:
