Dynamic Work Strategies

Dynamic work strategies allow project activities to adapt to unexpected site conditions and the results from real-time measurement systems.

Dynamic work strategies are the second leg of the Triad. Dynamic work strategies refer to strategies that incorporate the ability to adapt project activities to site conditions as new information becomes available while work is underway. This adaptation may be in response to data collection activities designed to address CSM unknowns, or it may be in response to completely unexpected site conditions encountered during the course of work.

Dynamic work strategies as part of a Triad approach can be integrated into almost every activity associated with hazardous waste site characterization and remediation. This includes overall project strategies, sampling and analysis programs for characterization purposes, remedial action design, implementation, and performance monitoring, long-term monitoring for sites that require it, closure plans, and quality assurance/quality control activities.

This section discusses some of the key concepts associated with dynamic work strategies, important considerations when designing and implementing dynamic work strategies, and the types of adaptive approaches that can be incorporated in dynamic work strategies.

Dynamic work strategies provide a basis for adapting work activities in response to real-time data while work is underway.
Important considerations for dynamic work strategies include logistics, lines of authority, documentation requirements, and vendor involvement in strategy development.
Dynamic work strategies can be applied to project management, characterization, remedial design, monitoring, and site closure.
