Engineering design audit is a simple process carried out by experienced evaluators to find out discrepancies including incorrect project conception, deviation from term of references or client requirements, overlooking major design steps and finally identification of major errors and omissions.
The additional money (fractional) spent on such audits by clients is more than made up by what is saved in project costs, delays, startup problems, maintenance costs, and overall efficiency of design.
The consultants intent to work in international market do require audit of their designs to reconfirm the quality of work.
Review may include concept reviewing, planning review or design review of a project. It is a detailed analysis of an already conceived or designed project by our experienced and knowledgeable team of experts. Reviewing is a detailed procedure than “Design Audit” as, in-depth examination of issues may lead to redesign of the project.
