Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this webinar, one will be able to understand:

  • Facility design change terminology;
  • Techniques by which to evaluate the cost and benefits of a facility design change;
  • Infrastructure necessary for the management of facility design change;
  • The system for the management of facility design change;
  • The system for the management of change to administrative and technical process documents and activities affected by the facility design change.


Proposal Phase

  • Types of change – e.g.: documentation only; hardware equivalent; hardware non-equivalent; hardware generic; set point
  • Type of change – why – e.g.: corrective; improvement change
  • Change proposal documentation and data
  • Trade-off study
  • Change priority

Design Phase

  • Design inputs – e.g.: regulatory requirement; commitments; walk-downs
  • Detail design
  • Calculations and analyses
  • Test requirements
  • Design output documents
  • Design change package
  • Design change evaluation – e.g.: impact on safety; impact on “abilities”
  • Impact on personnel, hardware and process re-qualification
  • Impact on other documents and activities – Marguglio’s Interconnectivity Diagram
  • Change authorization

Implementation Phase

  • Design document distribution
  • Change implementation scheduling
  • Hardware obsolescence and stop work
  • Make or buy and long lead items
  • Change implementation tracking
  • Engineering acceptance of vendor design and operating and maintenance manuals
  • “As built”
  • Work “at risk”
  • Change implementation verification – e.g., inspection; post-modification testing
  • Turn-over for return to service – minimum requirements for
  • Change project close-out


  • A Certificate of Completion with 0.15 of a Continuing Education Unit.
