How to Fill your Summary Statement (Element 2.4 – part 2)

Summary Statement

This week, we look into the final part of the second table (Engineering Application Ability) of the Summary Statement document. This final part consists of the four remaining indicators of the forth element of competency entitled: Application of systematic approaches to the conduct and management of engineering projects. The first two indicators were covered in the previous tutorial, so if you missed that one, go back and read it first.

c.) Accommodates relevant contextual issues into all phases of engineering project work, including the fundamentals of business planning and financial management.

Example: The project planning was ongoing and under formation at all times, as I collaborated closely with the financial department in order to stay in touch with the latest market trends that helped me steer the R&D activities to more profitable areas.

Example: I established a project planning cycle consisting of the review, revise and the modify phase. This cycle was repeated every month, so the project was always staying on track and in accordance to any changes in the requirements.

d.) Proficiently applies basic systems engineering and/or project management tools and processes to the planning and execution of project work, targeting the delivery of a significant outcome to a professional standard.

Example: I introduced the Six Sigma set of techniques in the company, helping the manufacturing plant work more efficiently without investing anything from the available financial resources.

Example: By applying a Kepner-Tregoe analysis, I successfully replaced job activities that weren’t as efficient as others could possibly be, and justified each item replacement with the corresponding numerical rating data.

e.) Is aware of the need to plan and quantify performance over the full life-cycle of a project, managing engineering performance within the overall implementation context.

Example: I used Kanban boards combined with lead and cycle times data to quantify the performance of each employee and each department individually, so that I could adjust the resources engagement sector to achieve a better overall performance.

Example: I first quantified the project’s goals, and then explained the equivalent effort that corresponds to each member of the personnel. This way, employees could fully understand what their personal goals where and how to reach them.

f.) Demonstrates commitment to sustainable engineering practices and the achievement of sustainable outcomes in all facets of engineering project work.

Example: I decided to use solar panels instead of petrol generators to power up the repeater substations, as their remote placement in the mountains favored the use of this kind of renewable energy resource, and lowered the maintenance and running cost by far.

Example: Instead of transporting the waste materials to a special treatment plant and paying for the services to two contractors, I proposed the development and implementation of an in-house waste treatment unit with enough capacity to service the needs of the plant for the next decade.
