The PRIMA project will enhance Snamprogettis ability
to properly address safety issues within the bid process in order
to have a clear and early understanding of the integration between
safety and technical requirements. The project will also improve
the ability of the company to effectively keep memory of the
past experience. This way, Snamprogetti is expected to provide
better estimates of the relevant cost figures and will be, eventually,
in position to better manage the economical risk of the bid.
In the PRIMA project, thanks to their industrial knowledge,
Snamprogetti will contribute to the identification of the users
needs and to the evaluation of the system performances through
test cases and evaluations by experts.
Snamprogetti plans to use the results obtained by the project
internally, towards a better understanding of the critical areas
and a deeper control of the whole bid process. In particular,
using the PRIMA products will help to identify hidden problems
and critical paths for bids, to keep memory of past experience
and reduce both errors in cost estimates and average lead times.
This way, the software and the technology developed will be used
to assess and reduce the economical risk of typical bids; assuring
best practice in Snamprogetti is also an expected by-product.
