Quality Management and Excellence Model Energy Sector

Order Description


Part 1

The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) is Scotland’s largest offshore wind test and demonstration facility which is being developed by Vattenfall-owned
Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited.
Located in Aberdeen Bay, the innovative 92.4MW 11-turbine offshore wind scheme will trial next generation technology and once operational, boost the industry’s drive
to competitive clean power.
Underlining the vision for the more than £300 million EOWDC is the installation of V164-8.4MW turbines paired with suction bucket foundations. An industry first.
Construction of the facility, which also includes 66kV cabling, began in October 2016, with first power generating in summer 2018 and operating for 20 years.
The EOWDC has been awarded up to €40million of funding from the European Union and is supported by Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG).

The EOWDC will:
Annually produce 309 GWh.
Have an installed capacity of 92.4MW.
Annually displace 132,977 tonnes of CO2.
Remove the equivalent of 730,492 cars from UK roads throughout its lifetime.
Produce enough electricity every year to meet the equivalent annual demand of 78,529 homes.
Generate the equivalent of 70% of Aberdeen’s domestic electricity demand and 23% of Aberdeen’s total demand.

You have attended the project briefing

and have been instructed to advise Vattenfall’s CEO regarding the deployment of quality management at the project
by critically analyze Wind Energy sector’s approach to quality management, making contrasting and comparative analysis
between case study organisations or within a single organisation.
Your analysis should seek to define and explore the application Quality Management standards within the sector specifically
focusing on standards and how it aligns with the strategic quality management, management of supply chain risks.
You may need to undertake a gap and impact analysis to build upon your ideas, evaluation and critique.


Part 2

Using secondary research design a conceptual quality management model that would be capable of improving Quality Management performance and business excellence within
the wind energy sector
in key areas such ask financial and non –financial performance, reduce marketing risk and customer satisfaction.
The model must be presented in a graphical format to present a graphical (e.g., diagrams, charts, flow charts, visuals or any other graphical format) to demonstrate
the underpinning philosophy, rationale and the objectives which the model is designed to achieve including a description of how the model will be applied within the
wind energy sector.
This may involve an exploration of existing frameworks, models and structures quality improvement within case organization(s) to offer a feasible and practical
conceptual framework
that can improve the effectiveness of the deployment Quality Management system within wind energy sector in the short term with the potential to improve outcomes to
the business in longer term.
The conceptual model should not exist in isolation, you need to offer an evaluation and critique how this model can be implemented effectively.

Report Requirements


• A contents page;

• List of tables, figures, charts, flowcharts, visuals, pixs and figures used;

• An executive summary;

• Body of the report: Numbered sections and subsections (e.g. Part 1 and 1.1. etc);

• Conclusions;

• Recommendations (where appropriate);

• Reference/Bibliography section;

• Appendices, if required at the end of the report; but all appendixes must be referred and contextualized in the body of the report.


The Harvard referencing system must be used.


Assessment Guidelines

Coursework allows students to study, review, analyse and present solutions to extended problems or cases.
It also allows students to develop their skills in the preparation of high quality reports. Coursework assignments are designed to assess students’ understanding
and ability to apply the range of concepts, theories and models examined in this module. Assignments are often open-ended and will always require a high level
of independent research that stretches beyond the taught module material. This will be the case for Postgraduate and MSc level study. The following notes are provided
by way of additional information:

An executive summary and any Appendices are in addition to the prescribed length. (Presentation marks will be deducted from reports +/- 10% of prescribed length).

The report should:

• Part 1 should be 2500 words long (+/-10%) and Part 2 should be 2500 words long (+/-10%) long;
• Demonstrate the contribution of your critique and evaluation to achieving performance improvement for organisations;
• Demonstrate understanding of current thinking in the possible synergy between quality and risk management, benefits and value of this synergy by the application of
research from books, journals, conferences, symposiums, databases or other current and credible sources;
• Be conducted within the context of a case organisation which may be your
own organisation if appropriate or one, two, three, etc., with which you are familiar or be sourced from suitable written case study material (secondary research).
