  20. 20. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com The Hi-Q Sigma Challenge To maximise the delivery schedule through best utilisation of available resource and identify opportunities to accelerate the programme through scenario modelling using a fully resourced schedule. Resourcing would be people only, cost would be considered separately.
  21. 21. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com 4 Scenarios to be considered 1. South Africa date achievable with current resources 2. Resource required to achieve South Africa in 2014 weather window 3. Resource required to achieve South Africa in 2015 weather window 4. Impact of a Media Jet Test 2013/14

  28. 28. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Complex Construction The BLOODHOUND Build Team trial fit one of the carbon fibre 'cheek' pieces to the jet and rocket powered car. These run from the Monocoque forward over the cooling ice tanks, front subassembly and front suspension
  29. 29. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Complex Multiple Power Plant BLOODHOUND SSC engineers test fitting the EJ 200 to the car’s chassis ready for connection of all the engine’s services and alignment checks, the engine weighs 991 Kg
  30. 30. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Complex Multiple Power Plant Pt 2 • BLOODHOUND's rocket partner, Nammo, successfully fired the new hybrid rocket. This firing lasted for a predefined 16 seconds, producing a maximum thrust of 30 kN (or 3 tonnes). The temperature in the rocket reached 2,500°C and 1,400°C in the plume. • The rocket started instantly after ignition and the firing was terminated in a controlled manner by closing the main oxidiser valve. • BLOODHOUND will use one rocket for high speed testing 2015 and a cluster of three rockets to reach 1,000mph in 2016.
  31. 31. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Development of Schedule • Predecessor and successor identified for each sub assembly and linked in schedule • For each sub assembly activity an estimated duration and existing available resource allocated. • Major Assemblies given priority order for design, manufacture & assembly. • Major Assemblies for Media Jet Test identified and prioritised
  32. 32. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Initial Logic and Critical Path Analysis • Sanity check of activity scheduling to ensure logic correct and 1st critical path identified to be front structure. • Resource levelling applied with existing team allocated, identified delivery to S Africa Q1 2017. Jul-13 Mar-17 Oct-13 Jan-14 Apr-14 Jul-14 Oct-14 Jan-15 Apr-15 Jul-15 Oct-15 Jan-16 Apr-16 Jul-16 Oct-16 Jan-17 INITIAL CRITICAL PATH CHECK - LOGIC LINKED, CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED
  33. 33. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 1 – Date with Current Resources Refining the Schedule • To ensure the resource levelling did not influence activity scheduling, priorities were applied to all sub assemblies. • The full schedule was then reviewed by the team to identify potential conflicts. This addressed a significant number of improvements both in dependencies and resource allocation. • The activity durations were revisited by the team to drive out any over pessimistic estimates and whilst some durations were revised down they did not lie on the critical path and failed to reduce the overall duration. • The resource graphs were analysed to ensure maximum utilisation of resource and some smoothing of resource was achieved through reprioritisation of activities.
  34. 34. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 1 – Date with Current Resources • The output from further resource levelling resulted in a delivery to S Africa end Q3 2016 Jul-13 Mar-17 Oct-13 Jan-14 Apr-14 Jul-14 Oct-14 Jan-15 Apr-15 Jul-15 Oct-15 Jan-16 Apr-16 Jul-16 Oct-16 Jan-17 SCEN 1 - CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED INITIAL CRITICAL PATH CHECK - LOGIC LINKED, CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED
  35. 35. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 2 - South Africa 2014 • To understand the level of resource required to achieve a SA 2014 date the ‘maximum availability’ of current resources was increased to 1000% • The schedule was then levelled to provide a date in Q4 2014…..HOWEVER….. Jul-13 Mar-17 Oct-13 Jan-14 Apr-14 Jul-14 Oct-14 Jan-15 Apr-15 Jul-15 Oct-15 Jan-16 Apr-16 Jul-16 Oct-16 Jan-17 SCEN 1 - CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED SCEN 2 – 2014, UNCONSTRAINED RESOURCE INITIAL CRITICAL PATH CHECK - LOGIC LINKED, CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED
  36. 36. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 2 - South Africa 2014 This scenario proved unachievable due to the requirement for : • 75 additional designers immediately • 31 additional stress engineers immediately • 5 additional assembly engineers • Unlimited availability of parallel manufacturing facilities
  37. 37. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 2 - South Africa 2014 • The achievement of a 2014 date, even provided with unlimited funds and the immediate recruitment of a huge amount of additional resource, is impossible due to: – The number of resources physically able to gain access to the assembly – The loss of valuable existing resource utilisation whilst providing oversight and mentoring to new resource, i.e. current resources become full time managers.

  40. 40. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 3 – South Africa 2015 The team then concentrated on developing a REALISTIC and ACHIEVEABLE schedule based upon the recruitment of a limited number of additional resources, to be allocated to critical activities This resulted in a date in Q2 2015, a 15 month saving compared to Scenario 1 Jul-13 Mar-17 Oct-13 Jan-14 Apr-14 Jul-14 Oct-14 Jan-15 Apr-15 Jul-15 Oct-15 Jan-16 Apr-16 Jul-16 Oct-16 Jan-17 SCEN 1 - CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED SCEN 3 - ADDITIONAL RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED SCEN 2 – 2014, UNCONSTRAINED RESOURCE 15 MONTHS INITIAL CRITICAL PATH CHECK - LOGIC LINKED, CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED

  43. 43. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 3 - Critical Path
  44. 44. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 3 – South Africa 2015 • Total average cost per month of additional resource would be £30k, peaking at £65k • However, the project completing 15 Months earlier results in a saving of £380k* • Mechanisms for increasing resource - – Recruit additional premium rate (£65/hr) resources (included in Scenario 3 schedule)
  45. 45. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 3 – South Africa 2015 • Prerequisite for bringing in premium resource – Uncapped overtime at an enhanced rate for current resources (not included in schedule – contingency for risk mitigation) – Estimated monthly cost £20k
  46. 46. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 4 – Media Jet Test Jul-13 Mar-17 Oct-13 Jan-14 Apr-14 Jul-14 Oct-14 Jan-15 Apr-15 Jul-15 Oct-15 Jan-16 Apr-16 Jul-16 Oct-16 Jan-17 SCEN 1 - CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED SCEN 3 - ADDITIONAL RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED SCEN 4 – MEDIA JET TEST SCEN 4 – POST MEDIA JET TEST SCEN 2 – 2014, UNCONSTRAINED RESOURCE 15 MONTHS TBC INITIAL CRITICAL PATH CHECK - LOGIC LINKED, CURRENT RESOURCE APPLIED, LEVELLED
  47. 47. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Scenario 4 – Media Jet Test • Initial planning process indicates that a media Jet Test could occur during Q4 2014 • This will inevitably have an adverse impact on the SA date, this is estimated at 10 weeks • Further detailed planning is required to fully understand the schedule for the Jet Test and the remaining activities post Jet Test
  48. 48. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com The inevitable over optimism
  49. 49. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Task Dependant Critical Path Next Steps; Re-assess logic and durations of critical activities Investigate ‘outsourcing’ some of this work Decide whether Aux Intake Cassette Assembly is required

  51. 51. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com Bloodhound Laid Out
  52. 52. ENGINEERING ADVENTURE www.BLOODHOUNDSSC.com The lessons • Invariably most plans are optimistic. • Over optimism is inherent in most people and difficult to overcome • Even the best constructed plans can only be realised by people and there is your biggest problem! • Understanding the personalities of key personnel is essential • You will never capture all the activities required for the ultimate schedule. • Be prepared for the schedule to increase in size and complexity as it matures before you can simplify and reduce working complexity • The analysis of data and its presentation needs to be tailored to your customer. • Some like lots and the decision making is paralysed • Others like to keep it simple and make effective decisions • Know and understand your customer, help them to help themselves
