Holds in pipe fabrication are often contentious and misunderstood. In this article, the term “hold” is used to describe the act of removing a spool piece from the fabrication cycle and preventing further work on the affected spool until the “hold” is “released”. “Released” means fabrication on this piece can resume.
A hold can be an instruction from a client to stop work on a piece or group of pieces, or it can be a result of the client issuing a change to the piece, with the fabricator putting the piece on hold while the changes are processed. We will describe some of the challenges created by holds caused by the client after the contract has begun, resulting in increased costs charged by the fabricator.
In order to understand the true impact of holds on pipe fabrication in a professional pipe fab shop, one has to understand the production process.
