Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. Detailed planning of welding activities, from the fabrication sequence through to the development of welding procedures and environmental constraints, enables a manufacturer to accurately estimate project scope and timeframe. In-depth project planning, from the tender to the delivery of the product, instils confidence in the client that the product will be delivered within the promised timeframe.
