2. ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
Safe and successful completion of complex projects in industrial environments requires careful planning and collaboration of different stakeholders. This paper presents the integration of three methods (task analysis, safety analysis, and project optimisation) to apply a holistic approach to complex project planning. The attributes and limitations of the separate elements are discussed, and a case study applying the integrated methodology is presented. The results from the case studies indicate that significant benefits in terms of time, cost and safety can be achieved through the application of the integrated methodology.
