Project Management- Unit III

  1. 1. Unit III Project Management Technical Analysis: selection of technology, material input and utilities, plant capacity, location & site, machinery and equipment, structures and civil work, environmental aspects, project charts and layouts. Financial Estimation: Project cost, source of finance, cost of production.
  2. 2. Technical Analysis • It’s a continuous exercise. • Needs to be done simultaneously when project is being examined. • Two Broad Purpose: – To ensure that the project is technically feasible i.e. all inputs required are available. – To facilitate the most optimal formulation of the project in terms of technology, size, location and so on.
  3. 3. Selection of Technology • For manufacturing a product/service, sometimes two or more alternatives are available. Eg: – Steel - either from Bessemer process or open hearth process. – Cement - either by dry process or the wet process. – Soda – either by electrolysis or chemical process. – Soap – either by semi boiled process or fully boiled process.
  4. 4. The Choice of Technology • The choice of technology is influenced by variety of considerations: 1. Plant Capacity: Often there are close relationship between plant capacity and production technology. Certain product technology sometimes can meet the plant capacity. 2. Principal Inputs: In some cases, raw materials available also influences the technology chosen. Quality of limestones determines the process for cement manufacturing. 3. Investment Outlay and Production Cost: There can be an impact of technology on investment options and the overall production cost. It needs to be assessed carefully.
  5. 5. Contd.. 4. Use by Other Units: Technology adopted should be proven by successful use by other units, preferably in India. 5. Product Mix: Total product mix generated by the technology is important. 6. Latest Developments: Technology used should be carefully chosen keeping in mind the obsolescence in near future. 7. Ease of Absorption: The ease with which a particular technology can be absorbed also influences the choice of technology. Sometimes there is a scarcity of trained personnel when high level technology is used.
  6. 6. Appropriateness of Technology • It refers to those methods which are suitable for local economic, social and cultural conditions. The technology used should be evaluated in terms of following questions: • Whether the technology utilizes local raw materials? • Whether the technology utilizes local man power? • Whether the goods/ services produced cater to the basic needs? • Whether the technology protects ecological balance? • Whether the technology is harmonious with social and cultural conditions of the country?
  7. 7. Technical Arrangements • To obtain technical know how collaboration is sought. When collaboration is sought, following aspects of the agreement should be worked out in detail – The nature and support to be provided during the designing of the project, selection and procurement of equipment, installation and erection of the plant, operation and maintenance, training the project personnel. – Process and performance guarantees. – The price of technology in terms of licensing fee. – Benefit of any R&D services. – Period of collaboration agreement. – Termination of the agreement in case of failure in obligation. – Force Majeure situations.
  8. 8. Material Input and Utilities • Another important aspect of technical analysis is defining the materials and utilities required. • Material inputs and utilities are broadly classified into four categories: – Raw materials • Agricultural products • Mineral products • Livestock and forest products • Marine products – Processed industrial materials and components – Auxiliary materials and factory supplies – Utilities
  9. 9. Contd.. • Raw Materials 1. Agricultural Products – Quality needs to be examined. – Quantities available and future potential. 2. Mineral Products – Quantum of exploitable deposits and their properties. – Location, size and depth of deposits along with the viability of open cast or mining. – Composition of the ore, level of impurities, chemical properties etc. 3. Livestock and Forecast Products – Sometimes secondary data is not that accurate, therefore specific survey may be required to obtain more reliable data on livestock produce and forest products. 4. Marine Products – Assessing the potential availability of marine products and cost of collection is difficult.
  10. 10. Contd.. • Processed Industrial Materials and Components — Includes base metals, semi-processed materials, manufactured parts, components and sub assemblies. — These are important inputs for a number of industries. — Their properties (Physical, mechanical, chemical and electrical) are important to understand. — What is the total requirement of the project? — How much quantity from domestic and/or foreign sources? — Dependability of supplies? — Past and future trends in prices?
  11. 11. Contd.. • Auxiliary Materials and Factory Supplies – Like chemicals, additives, packaging material, paint, varnishes, oil, cleaning materials etc. – Feasibility study needs to be undertaken in order to understand the demand of such materials. • Utilities – Power, water, steam, fuel etc. – Detailed assessment of such utilities can be made only after project formulation w.r.t. location, technology and plant capacity. – Successful operation of project depends upon adequate availability of utilities. – What quantities are required? What are the sources of Supply? – What are the potential availability and likely shortage scenarios?
  12. 12. Capacity Planning & Facility Location
  13. 13. Capacity planning • Capacity is the maximum output rate of a production or service facility • Capacity planning is the process of establishing the output rate that may be needed at a facility: – Capacity is usually purchased in “chunks” – Strategic issues: how much and when to spend capital for additional facility & equipment – Tactical issues: workforce & inventory levels, & day-to-day use of equipment
  14. 14. Plant Capacity • Also referred to as production capacity. • Volume or number of units that can be produced in a given period. • Can be measured in two ways: – FNC (Feasible Normal Capacity) • Capacity attainable under normal working conditions – NMC (Nominal Maximum Capacity) • Capacity attainable technically (installed capacity)
  15. 15. Measuring Capacity Examples • There is no one best way to measure capacity • Output measures like kgs. per day are easier to understand • With multiple products, inputs measures work better Type of Business Input Measures of Capacity Output Measures of Capacity Car manufacturer Labor hours Cars per shift Hospital Available beds Patients per month Pizza parlor Labor hours Pizzas per day Retail store Floor space in square feet Revenue per foot
  16. 16. Capacity Information Needed • Design capacity: – Maximum output rate under ideal conditions – A bakery can make 30 custom cakes per day when pushed at holiday time • Effective capacity: – Maximum output rate under normal (realistic) conditions – On the average this bakery can make 20 custom cakes per day
  17. 17. Calculating Capacity Utilization • Measures how much of the available capacity is actually being used: – Measures effectiveness – Use either effective or design capacity in denominator (FNC or NMC)  100% capacity rateoutputactual nUtilizatio 
  18. 18. Example of Computing Capacity Utilization: In the bakery example the design capacity is 30 custom cakes per day. Currently the bakery is producing 28 cakes per day. What is the bakery’s capacity utilization relative to both design and effective capacity? 93%(100%) 30 28 (100%) capacitydesign outputactual nUtilizatio 140%(100%) 20 28 (100%) capacityeffective outputactual nUtilizatio (NMC)design (FNC)effective   • The current utilization is only slightly below its design capacity and considerably above its effective capacity • The bakery can only operate at this level for a short period of time
  19. 19. How Much Capacity Is Best? • The Best Operating Level is the output than results in the lowest average unit cost • Economies of Scale: – Where the cost per unit of output drops as volume of output increases – Spread the fixed costs of buildings & equipment over multiple units, allow bulk purchasing & handling of material • Diseconomies of Scale: – Where the cost per unit rises as volume increases – Often caused by congestion (overwhelming the process with too much work-in-process) and scheduling complexity
  20. 20. Best Operating Level and Size • Alternative 1: Purchase one large facility, requiring one large initial investment • Alternative 2: Add capacity incrementally in smaller chunks as needed
  21. 21. Factors Influencing Capacity Decisions • Technological Requirement – There is certain minimum economic size determined by the technological factor. • Input Constraints – In India, availability of certain inputs like power, basic raw material etc have impact on plant capacity decisions. • Investment Costs – Investment cost per unit of capacity decreases as the plant capacity increases.
  22. 22. Contd.. • Market Conditions – If market for the product is strong, high capacity plant is preferred and vice versa. – Sometimes market potential is expected to rise in future, then also capacity should be large. • Resources of the firm – A firm cannot choose large capacity beyond the available financial and managerial capability. • Government Policy – Concept of ‘minimum economic capacity’ has been adopted in several industries because of Govt. policies.
  23. 23. Facility Location • Facility location is the process of identifying the best geographic location for a service or production facility. • Is there any difference between “Location” and ‘Site”?
  24. 24. Location Strategy • Infrequent decision based on: – Demand outgrowing existing capacity. – Local changes in labor productivity, exchange rates, costs, local attitudes. – Shifts in demographics and customer demands. • Location options: – Don’t move, expand an existing facility. – Maintain current sites, add another facility. – Close an existing facility and move to another location.
  25. 25. Factors That Affect Location Decisions • General factors. • Global Region or Country decision.
  26. 26. General Factors • Globalization. • Market (customer) proximity – High population areas, close to JIT partners • Raw Material/Suppliers proximity – Transportation costs, perishability, bulk purchase • Labor proximity and productivity – Proximity—local wage rates, unions, special skills availability – Productivity—low cost may be linked to low productivity and vice versa) • Government Policies – Govt. restrictions and inducements. – Restrictions in urban congestion and inducements in backward areas. • SEZ, concessional finance, income tax benefits etc.
  27. 27. Contd.. • Availability of Infrastructure – Power, transportation, water and communications – Power: Useful in electricity intensive projects. • Quantum of power available, prices, stability etc. – Transportation: inputs transportation and output distribution. (rail, road, sea or air) • Availability, reliability and cost of transportation. – Water: Adequate water supply is essential given the plant capacity and type of technology. – Telephone and internet. • Competitor proximity – Clustering—due to a major resource in the area. • Others: Climatic conditions, General living conditions, Proximity to ancillary units, ease of coping with pollution.
  28. 28. Global Region or Country • Key International Locations – North America, Europe, Pacific Rim. • Key Considerations – Political/legal concerns. – Cultural issues (including business). – Infrastructure: supplies, communication, utilities. – International trade issues. • Exchange rates. – Market access issues. – Labor availability, attitudes, productivity, costs. – Quality-of-life issues.
  29. 29. Location Analysis Methods • Analysis should follow 3 step process: – Step 1: Identify dominant location factors – Step 2: Develop location alternatives – Step 3: Evaluate locations alternatives • Factor rating method • Load-distance model • Center of gravity approach • Break-even analysis • Transportation method
  30. 30. Factor-Rating Method • Six steps: 1. Develop a list of relevant factors. 2. Assign a weight to each factor reflecting its relative importance to the firm. 3. Develop a rating scale for the factors. 4. Score each location on each factor based on the scale. 5. Multiply the scores by the weights for each factor and total the weighted scores for each location. 6. Make a recommendation based on the maximum point score, considering other [quantitative?] factors.
  31. 31. Factor Rating Example
  32. 32. A Load-Distance Model Example: Matrix Manufacturing is considering where to locate its warehouse in order to service its four Ohio stores located in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton. Two sites are being considered; Mansfield and Springfield, Ohio. Use the load-distance model to make the decision. • Calculate the rectilinear distance: • Multiply by the number of loads between each site and the four cities miles4515401030dAB 
  33. 33. Calculating the Load-Distance Score for Springfield vs. Mansfield • • The load-distance score for Mansfield is higher than for Springfield. The warehouse should be located in Springfield. Computing the Load-Distance Score for Springfield City Load Distance ld Cleveland 15 20.5 307.5 Columbus 10 4.5 45 Cincinnati 12 7.5 90 Dayton 4 3.5 14 Total Load-Distance Score(456.5) Computing the Load-Distance Score for Mansfield City Load Distance ld Cleveland 15 8 120 Columbus 10 8 80 Cincinnati 12 20 240 Dayton 4 16 64 Total Load-Distance Score(504)
  34. 34. Center-of-Gravity Method 1. Place the locations to be supported on a coordinate system (like a graph). 2. Calculate the center of gravity: Where: xi = x-coordinate of location i. yi = y-coordinate of location i. li = quantity (load) of goods moved to/from location i.   i ii cg l xl coordinateX   i ii cg l yl coordinateY
  35. 35. The Center of Gravity Approach • This approach requires that the analyst find the center of gravity of the geographic area being considered • Computing the Center of Gravity for Matrix Manufacturing • Is there another possible warehouse location closer to the C.G. that should be considered?? Why? 10.6 41 436 l Yl Y;7.9 41 325 l Xl X i ii c.g. i ii c.g.      Computing the Center of Gravity for Matrix Manufacturing Coordinates Load Location (X,Y) (li) lixi liyi Cleveland (11,22) 15 165 330 Columbus (10,7) 10 165 70 Cincinnati (4,1) 12 165 12 Dayton (3,6) 4 165 24 Total 41 325 436
  36. 36. Break-Even Analysis • Break-even analysis can be used for location analysis especially when the costs of each location are known – Step 1: For each location, determine the fixed and variable costs – Step 2: Plot the total costs for each location on one graph – Step 3: Identify ranges of output for which each location has the lowest total cost – Step 4: Solve algebraically for the break-even points over the identified ranges • Remember the break even equations used for calculation total cost of each location and for calculating the breakeven quantity Q. – Total cost = F + cQ – Total revenue = pQ – Break-even is where Total Revenue = Total Cost
  37. 37. The Transportation Method • The transportation method of linear programming can be used to solve specific location problems • It could be used to evaluate the cost impact of adding potential location sites to the network of existing facilities • It could also be used to evaluate adding multiple new sites or completely redesigning the network
  38. 38. Machinery and Equipment • Selection of machineries and equipments is dependent upon – plant capacity and production technology – Type of project • In manufacturing, various machines can perform same function with varying degree of accuracy. • For selecting machinery and equipments for manufacturing industry: – Estimate the likely levels of production – Define various machining and other operations – Calculate the machine hours required for each operation

  59. 59. Contd.. • Margin money for working capital – Principal support for working capital is provided by banks and trade creditors. However certain part of working capital requirement comes from sources of long term finance. This is referred to as ‘margin money for working capital’. – Mostly required to meet overruns in capital cost. A margin of working capital is blocked by the financial institutions initially so that it can be utilized later when needed. • Initial cash losses – Most of the projects incur cash losses in the initial years. – Sometimes they are not disclosed to make the project appear attractive and public investment can be easily initiated. – Provision for such losses are important. Failure to do so, it may impact the firms liquidity and can impair the operations as well.
