Once the plant appropriation request has been approved, the facilities program enters into an implementation phase. We leave the domain of strategic planning and enter that of equipment purchase, including negotiation, procurement, and installation of the equipment to perform the intended task. Also, once the PAR has been approved the facilities project ceases to involve all aspects of the company. It continues to have high priority only within manufacturing engineering and, secondarily, within shop operations. To the other functions of the company the project is history; to manufacturing engineering, it is just beginning.

In this chapter we will explore the many facets of a capital equipment project that lead up to successful implementation. Some of the items occur before PAR approval, some after. The sequence described is the optimum way of approaching the accomplishment of capital equipment projects.
