Many consulting organisations have relatively young and inexperienced surge analysts. As a result surge analyses often fail to use the best strategies. Consequently, the conclusions and solutions offered can be limited. To address this, we are able to support modellers, analysts and designers on the job, assisting them in strategy and methodology.
This type of supervision and mentoring can be provided remotely. We have a permanent web based collaboration office on the advanced zoom.us web-conferencing service. This allows the sharing of multiple screens and remote control making the mentoring process very efficient and cost effective.
We also do peer review of surge analyses and studies for third parties. This can be a simple review of surge analysis strategy, methodology and conclusions, but can also involve verification of models. Peer review is particularly important on larger projects.
