It is a good practice to have a PSR that acts as a dashboard for procurement and fabrication activities updated on weekly basis.
The Procurement Status Report normally shows:
- Name of package
- Name of supplier
- Name of relevant team members (package engineer, quality engineer, buyer, expeditor, lead inspector)
- Dates the Purchase order signed off,
- Dates for KOM, PIM, Fabrication Commencement Date, Fabrication and Testing Bench Mark Dates, latest expediting visit and report No.
- Dates for First release, last release, Required on Site (ROS) Date and the like.
Note: ROS date is normally a couple of months after the release date in order to absorb any delay in manufacturing and release without affecting the project progress.
