Bigger is Better

Problem:
Our client had built the first of their newest product, the world’s largest and most efficient gas
turbine engine, a 500,000lbs behemoth that cost $1 bn to develop. The company planned to test
the unit in controlled circumstances but they had a hurdle to cross – the unit was assembled in a
plant in France but the test facility was located in South Carolina, USA. It would need to be
shipped to the US, tested and data captured, and then re-packaged for shipment back to origin.

To add an extra level of complexity, certain components had been painted with heat-sensitive
paint to measure temperature at different points throughout the unit; in addition, this the giant
machine was fitted with 4,500 sensors that would need additional consideration during the
packaging process.
