The OptiFit process was in response to two specific definitions of success that we established at the very beginning.
First that it had to deliver a firm price and schedule that customers could rely on, and Second, the entire fabrication scope had to be completed in the shop environment, essentially resulting in a “meccano” set to assemble in the field.
Failures led the way to ultimately solve these two challenges. The first attempt at this “shop prefabrication” requirement was a project for Canadian Natural Resources on an ice-road northeast of Fort McMurray with break up looming!
With two Waukesha 7042/ Ariel JGK/4 packages to re-cylinder we arrived with over 70 pre-fabricated spools for the first unit. Given we had spent a full week on site measuring and double checking our work the 99% fit failure rate was to say the least disappointing!
