The process-design-basis document represents the owner’s instructions to the design engineering organization about what the owner wants designed, and how the owner wants the process design to be done. Note that these instructions to the process design engineering effort are different from what the owner would provide to the basic design/mechanical engineering organization, or the design-construct organization. Note also the distinction between a process-design-basis document and a scope-of-work document. The scope of work is an integral part of the design basis, but the design basis also contains much more. The scope of work defines what is to be done, and what are the limits of that activity. The design basis also provides the who, the how, the why, and the when. Furthermore, the scope of work rarely addresses the design philosophy, the design standards, the execution plan, the format of deliverables, or the commercial terms.   Don’ t leave anything out A fundamental attribute of a good process-design-basis document…
