Whether it is a new venture or a retrofit, revamp or upgrade, delay and cost overrun even to reach the Go No-Go decision gate to move is common. This adds to the fear of unmatched (below promised/ projected) reactor performance or worse total failure that is not uncommon. We witnessed these events in multiple ventures that succeeded or failed. We critically examined and documented the causes and effects. We are now ready to offer solutions to minimize cost and time to reach the decision gate and then minimize fear and risk for the final move.
