An oil and gas company had gone through multiple acquisitions and experienced supplier attrition as well as documentation issues. Prints and bill of materials (BOM) were hard to define.
The Linear Solution
Linear did an obsolete and alternate material analysis. Utilizing design for manufacturing (DFM), Linear updated old processes and antiquated technology. New documentation packages were created and the electronics assembly was streamlined into current manufacturing processes.
A prototype was built and tested. Linear did the box build which communicated with satellites to collect data and perform pipeline trouble shooting. The new documentation package helped the oil and gas company achieve ISO and CSA certification.
