The customer had a limited 4 week window to manufacture, with a strict 10 week shipping and commissioning leadtime, based on project funding. The units having a final location of Namibia, Rwanda and Scotland.
We reviewed the project and consulted with all relevant suppliers checking availability as to the supply and lead time of material and equipment, once procurement was secured our team went into full production of the filter packages which had a finish deadline of 22 working days.
After some design issues and some small procurement issues we hit the deadline of the 22-day build. The 1st unit to be shipped was Scotland unit to a test facility (a farm in Haddington).
Once in place we started the second phase of the project which was the final assembly and commissioning of the unit. Once in position the unit was assembled with the flow & return spools and weather sealed to create a watertight environment for the customer. Under a timeline of 1-day we completed the project and assisted the customer with several other tasks outside of the project scope to ensure the success of the project.
The project was completed with the final commissioning of the unit within the allotted timescale. All commissioning procedures were completed safely and the remaining two other units delivered to Namibia and Rwanda.
Unit built in 22 days from material order to shipment under 9001 and 1090 procedure.
Commissioning 1 day from unit availability to running liquid through the filter unit.
