A standardized, global product development and purchasing process was needed to fuel growth and control capital costs

AOP Approach

  • A client team facilitated by AOP and composed of sales, design engineers, and purchasing personnel was assembled to promote process and product standardization
  • A design-for-cost methodology was applied to establish product design standards


  • Recent capital budgets for large projects resulted in +/- 5% variances instead of historical +15% to +50% budget misses
  • Product design standards for major capital projects were instituted across North and South America
