Guidelines for Managing A Fiber Optic Project

MANAGING_FIBER_PROJECT

 

Managing a fiber optic project can be easiest part of the installation if the design and planning have been done thoroughly and completely, or, if not, the hardest. But even assuming everything has been done right, things will still probably go wrong, so planning for the unexpected is also very important.

Therefore to minimize the problems and help in their speedy solution. Here are some tips

ON SITE MANAGEMENT AND SUPERVISION
first, someone has to be in charge, and everyone involved must know they are the boss, including them. During the project, they must be readily available for consultation and updates. While this may sound obvious, sometimes the network user’s representative has other responsibilities (like managing an IT department) and may not be able or willing to direct full attention to the project. Whoever is assigned the task of managing the project must be involved and available, preferably on the job site, full time. If necessary, delegate responsibility to the contracting construction supervisor with requirements for daily reports and personal updates.

Make certain that everyone responsible for parts of the project have appropriate documentation and have reviewed the installation plan. Everyone should have toured the relevant job sites and be familiar with locations. They must also know who to contact about questions on the sites, within the network user, the contractor and any outside organizations such as local governments or utilities. Everyone needs to have contact information for each other (cell phones usually, since email may be too slow and instant messaging will probably not be available to field workers.) The onsite supervisor should have a digital camera and take plenty of photos of the installation to be filed with the documentation for future reference and restoration.

Locations of components, tools and supplies should be known to all personnel. On larger jobs, managing equipment and materials may be a full time job. Special equipment, like splicing trailers or bucket trucks, should be scheduled as needed. Rental equipment should be double checked with the suppliers to ensure delivery to the job site on time. Contacts for vendor technical support should be noted on documentation for the inevitable questions arising during installation.

CONTACTS WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES
Outside plant installs may require local authorities to provide personnel for supervision or police for protection or traffic management on public job sites, so they must also become involved in the scheduling. If job inspections are required, arrangements should be made so that the job interruptions for inspections are minimized. Supervisory personnel must be responsible for job site safety and have appropriate contact information, including for public services like police, fire and ambulance.

If the project is large enough to last several days or more, daily meetings to review the day’s progress are advisable. At a minimum, it should involve the onsite construction supervisor and the network user’s person in charge of the project. As long as things are going well, such a meeting should be short. On longer projects, overnight security personnel at job sites should have contact information for the job manager who must be available 24/7 as well as public service contacts.

CONTINUOUS INSPECTION, TESTING AND CORRECTIONS
Inspection and testing of the installed cable plant should not be left until after the job is completed. Testing continually during installation can find and fix problems such as cable stresses or high termination losses before those problems become widespread.  Each installer doing testing should have documentation with loss budget calculations and acceptable losses to use for evaluating the test results. Installers should be double-checking each other’s work to ensure quality.

What do you do when (not if) things go wrong?

Here judgment calls are important. When something happens, obviously it is the responsibility of the onsite supervisor to decide quickly if they can take care of it. If not, they must know who needs to be brought in and who needs to be notified. By reviewing progress regularly, disruptions can be minimized. Equipment failures, e.g. a fusion splicer, can slow progress, but other parts of the project like cable laying can continue, with splicing resumed as soon as replacement equipment is available. Problems with termination should be reviewed by an installer with lots of experience and the cure may require new supplies or turning termination over to more experienced personnel.

 

NOTE: Never hesitate to call vendor support when these kinds of questions or problems arise.
