The project implementation phase embraces the period from start of commercial production.

If not planned properly, this phase may extend over enough time to endanger the potential profitability of the project. Implementation scheduling is primarily aimed to determine the financial implications of the implementation phase with a view to securing sufficient finance to float the project until and beyond the start of production.

I started to think what aspects we need to consider making plant layout. Read More
