External Interface Management

Similarly to Management of Change, External Interface Management is an essential process that is transverse to the entire Project and is key to keep the Project in control.

The essential characteristics of a sound Interface Management process include:

Ideally an Interface Management process is managed by the Owner or its representative, which provides a single central platform (register and the relevant process and forms) for exchanging information between the main contractors,

It is always essential for contractors to setup an interface management process between themselves and their own suppliers and subcontractors, that interfaces seamlessly with the Owner’s own interface management system when available,

Any interface issue can be raised by any supplier or contractor, either as a clarification to existing documents, or as a deviation from existing documents,

Interface issues are preferably resolved quickly and collaboratively. The objective of the interface process is to agree on the interfaces between all interfacing parts of the Project so as to enable all interfacing parts to meet the associated technical requirements as specified in the Contract or in standards and norms. In certain cases, one or both interfacing parties may need to modify its intended design/solution in order to achieve this. Such modification should be subjected to a rigorous Management of Change process. Where the change is a result of requirements that were not covered by the Contract, a Change Order could be requested prior to implementing the Change so as to ensure that it is compensated for by the Client.
