Decision Making in the Front End Loading Stage of Project Management

People Involved

Project Description

This project aims to examine the types of decision-making processes used by project managers during the Front-End Loading (FEL) stage of project management and to provide recommendations for improving decision-making during this phase.
FEL in Project Management is the early stage of a project where strategic success or failure for the project is set. FEL is commonly used in the Oil and Gas industry to develop a detailed definition of the scope of a capital project in order to increase the probability of project success in terms of cost, schedule and operability. FEL is an important process in the conceptualisation of a project as it involves generating enough strategic information in order to address risk and make decisions to commit resources to a project. Some researchers have found that while the FEL process is understood in the oil and gas industry, it is not applied appropriately.
