Life in the (Electrical) Trenches

Ben Louw

Abstract
We will describe the project delivery process for SCADA/EMS systems.
Mention will be made of the primary vendors encountered and the role of consultants.

Included will be:
- The customer request for proposal (RFP)
- The vendor proposal
- The evaluation and contract award
- Implementation and Factory acceptance testing
- Field installation and commissioning
- Final acceptance (...hopefully)

We will comment on some of the most interesting and the most difficult projects encountered, as well as two of the most recently implemented (for Egypt and Iraq).
