Training Program of Project Personals

Agrotech offers professional services in several interrelated areas of project development. We can provide a technical evaluation of the project being considered as well as analysis of the economic feasibility. Margins and markets available and the costs of production that are to be expected each form integral parts of the analysis. The following outlines in more detail the work normally undertaken in each these phases:

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT AND FEASIBILITY SERVICES

Clients are offered parallel analysis of both the technical and economic aspects of a project. Technical analysis includes production parameters and economics of scale evaluation. Economic analysis includes cost of production, net margins available, return on investment, etc. This service is often extended to assisting clients in drafting a business plan. In developing this information, we go through the rudiments of concept development and can conduct preliminary design of those aspects having major impact on capital cost.

We are also able to develop preliminary estimates of both capital and operating cost for use in conducting feasibility study. Perhaps the most valuable feature offers the ability to develop these estimates internally. This allows us to interactively adjust the capital and operating costs towards the optimal production capacity of the project.

Having knowledge of the input, output, and transportation constraints associated with a project allows us to conduct a rational site selection program. We balance all the project requirements towards a prioritized selection from available alternatives.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Clients engage us as prime consultants or sub-consultants. As prime consultants we engage those sub-consultants needed to supplement or in house capabilities and mange their input towards a common end product. As a sub-consultant, we form a part of team coordinated by others.   

SPECIAL SERVICES

The following are several examples of services we have provided.

STANDARD OPERATION MANUALS

A manual prepared for technical staff is considerably different from a manual prepared for custodial staff, and the ability to present information that they can understand quickly is essential. The preparation of this type of document draws upon our technical background as well as our experience in presenting the subject in a concise and readable fashion.

TRAINING PROGRAM OF PROJECT PERSONALS

          Several of our projects have involved:

  • Conducting training needs assessments for use in defining the scope of the program required.
  • Development of the training program and training materials.
  • Coordinating the provision of trainers (drawing upon both in-house staff as well as engaging contract trainers).
