Interim Manager commissioning and closing out on a £50M autonomous cart baggage handling system (total business: 165 people, £68M turnover); 2nd of 3 consecutive assignments
Phase 1 and 2 (90 carts) passed client confidence and brought into live traffic operation (key contractual milestone)
Commission of remaining phases (further 90 carts) developed ready for integration with live phases
The result was that when the final phase 4 completed construction, system integration could start immediately
I pulled together and managed a diverse range of close out activities, including low level commissioning in Phase 3, documentation and compliance.
I managed trouble shooting to address the myriad issues causing system instability and provided additional operational support as short term mitigation in Phases 1 and 2 as they went into live traffic.
I engaged more resource in Phases 1 and 2 to ensure emerging technical issues were resolved and then cut and pasted this approach the across the project to avoid repeating the scenario.
I brought intense, hour by hour focus to low level commissioning and brought in specialist resourcing as new technical issues emerged in Phase 3 in order to maintain the programme.
I managed the consequences of Covid 19 on site to ensure the project did not stop.
