Page of the Day

Life is not as we think it is. It is very hard most of the time but sometimes ,forshort times,it is fascinating too.

If one keeps the end destination in sight then the hard  journey keeps going .Astyaing makes it attractive too for the short time.

Priorities in life are like the candle placed on the dark path.They keep us on track while on a long journey. Being part of the society and sense of contribution gives the strength to move forward .

The love and care for the family gives hope and purpose to move forward.

Going on this long journey one step at a time and consistantly lets one feel alive other wise life becomes stagnant and one feel useless day by day which leads to depression and anxiety.

In summery life is though hard but the only way to feel good is to move forward and to feel alive being purposeful and part of larger circle.

Religion as a Social Life

Human is social animal and to survive a stable life it needs interaction. There are many ways for making this interaction. Virtual interaction are in no way a replacement of social life which one on one interaction can provide,

Whenever I go to religious gathering I realize the immense contribution it provides  an opportunity of social interaction. It provides multiple opportunities of interaction, sense of contribution by volunteering services, learning opportunity and of course a way to spiritual enlighten and realization of our actual purpose of being here in this non-eternal life. This is a common contribution of any religion or sect and sometimes we forget this beautiful common factor and focus what are the differences,

I have not been able to being part of any religious social gathering and never been lucky to give services and that’s the only reason  I always feel non attachment with my faith. I don’t find any good alternatives eithers as I know for me it is the best and perfect and yet I don’t feel the attachment.

Then I think it is what life is, a continuous learning experience and we have to go along flowing with it.

Control Valve Technical Bid Evaluation

Technical bid evaluation  is an important part of an EPC project and both cost and schedule have large impacts.

Control valve and other critical items have more importance of this activity. After doing three major EPC projects with client like GASCO and ADCO I have got good experience and I would like to highlight the important parts of this activity.

Data Sheet

While developing technical data sheet it is important that special attention be given to :

What material is specified for the body, stem, plug, ball and other wetted and non wetted parts of the valve.

The selection of proper material is important since it has large cost impact special if the process is corrosive and custom material are required for wetted parts

Leakage class of the valve

The leakage class should be clearly mention. The classes range from class IV to VI. The later being more stagnant.

Stroke timings

The stroke timings are necessary to be specified since vendor shall select actuator accordingly

Fail Safe Condition

Once the fail safe condition is specified, the valve is designed accordingly. It can be either fail open  or fail close.

Test Requirements

All the required test must be clearly mentioned on the data sheet like material test certificate, leakage test, NDE test and other project specific test required

Material Requisition

Material requisition is also important pre-bid evaluation document. All the  codes and standards to be complied should be listed like ASME, IEC, ISA and other applicable codes.

The documents required from vendor should be listed and also the inspection and test plan should be tabulated.

Once these pre-bid documents are prepared and quotations are received then the quotes are evaluated for technical compliance.

The technical bid evaluation should be prepared in such a way that point by point compliance is obtained from vendor but it should be easy to understand by all three parties(client, contractor and vendors). The best way I have practiced and which is followed in good engineering practice in an EPC project is to tabulate the requirements of both material requisition(clause wise) and the requirements of the data sheet(items wise) and then obtain vendor compliance confirmation in adjacent column of the same table.

It is also important that the confirmation items should also be  reflected in vendor’s technical offer

This practice helps optimizing the time required for technical clarification with vendors and the same document can and should be used for multiple vendor of the same item,

All the deviations of the vendor should be clearly marked and highlighted and be shared with client for approval.

Life as We Live it

I was trying to write some thing. I typed then deleted  some lines and at the end what matters is how we live the life.

Our thought pave the path which mold our lives. There is nothing as destiny, all that unfolds is what we attempt for and the one we don’t try always remains never seen and whatever we can think is possible to be turned into reality.

Life is a beautiful bitch, at first it attracts you but once you catch it  suck as everything back in past but yet again it gives the satisfaction of being achieved than sitting and doing nothing.

House MD

So yet again I felt I did late in watching House MD. It is one of the best series I have come across and enjoyed watching. This story is about an anti social mavric doctor who has his unique way of diagnosing unsolved illnesses. It has every thing. The curiosity and craziness of Dr House, the commitment of Dr Cuddy, the gentleness of Dr Willson. The story is both entertaining and useful specially for the medical field. The unique part of the whole series is the misery of Dr house whole life and his unique way of dealing both the patients and his team.

The character of Dr House is  the epic part of the series and the friendship of the trio(House, Cuddy and Willson) is most awesome part throughout the series. The teaching method of Dr House to his teammates and young doctors is perhaps the craziest and unique way.

Some of the most memorable moments and quotes of the series are :

Everybody Lies.  Dr House

People never change, the become more of who they really are. Dr House

If you are dieing, suddenly everyone loves you. Dr House
