LAUTEC’s Contributions to the Zhong Neng Project

Both our Lead Project Planners at LAUTEC Taiwan collaborated closely with the ZN PMO, Gina Wang, and the rest of the project team during this phase, contributing to the successful completion of the foundation campaign through simulating forecasts, identifying bottlenecks, providing recommendations to managers for improvement, and offering suggestions for enhancing subcontracting status.

Mao-Cheng Chang played a major role in enabling the smooth installation of the foundations through developing and managing the planning from the supply side of the project. Using his expertise to structure the planning to the supply chain, he was able to fully understand and highlight the focal points for the fabrication management team and capacity planning and control in the supply chain, ensuring a smooth and timely execution of the campaign.

Chi-Wei Lin supported the project by efficiently collecting real-time offshore construction progress data through the utilization of the LAUTEC DPR system as well as providing timely forecast planning with the help of LAUTEC ESOX. By continuously conducting weekly reviews of progress with the ZN project team, he was able to help adjust and optimize strategic approaches that ensured this milestone was met successfully.
