Editorial Reviews

Review

Uniquely focused on the position of "lead in charge", the author of the book, James Pennock-a lead for 39 years at Fluor Daniel, compiles his vast experience into this practical how-to guide. -Chemical Industry Digest

From the Publisher

The "lead" person is responsible for the successful execution of all piping engineering and design for a project, technical and non-technical aspects alike. The author defines the roles and responsibilities a lead will face and the differences found in various project types.

Format: Hardcover
This book is poorly written. The author started out with an objective which he did not achieve at the conclusion of the book. The chapter on estimating provides no guidance on design manhours estimate for a piping project. There is no new information here for a person on the verge of piping leadership. Any person who is put in a leadership position without mentoring has been set-up for a potential failure. Any engineering firm which does the same is not treating itself well.

The book is written with the 2nd person pronoun (which means the reader or YOU)in a style that lectures or giving out sermon. The author should have sent the book for technical and literary style editing before publishing it. There is nothing in the book on how to manage a piping engineering project nor a small piping department. It talks on piping engineering lead, with responsibilities that matches that of project management but failed to discus it.

I regret buying this book in 2001. Over the years I seldom read it, and every time I read it, there is no guidance not enlightenment I can gain from it.

Format: Hardcover
The individual charged with the management of a piping team must be able to understand the project scope, plan the piping manhour and manpower requirements, decide the piping deliverables, decide the piping specifications and standards to be used, decide the piping procedures to be followed, monitor the piping progress and interface with the other diciplines as a minimum. Additionally, one should also understand the needs of procurement, fabrication and construction; be able to contribute to the construction execution plan and the scopes of work, and be able to negotiate with project management. In short, being a piping lead requires many years of experience and an ability to make and stand by your decisions. James Pennock brings his many years of experience to bear in this book. Here, he not only describes the piping lead's roles and responsibilities, but also provides other pertinent 'need to know' information. This book describes in detail all aspects of the project execution and piping management that every piping lead needs to know in order to take on this challenging role effectively. Purchasers of this book will be getting more than just a guide on piping leadership, but also a reference and resource that will serve them for years to come.
