The Challenge

At Company T, they were using a certain supplier’s pumps for a newly developed LC system. But as soon as they installed it they ran into problem after problem; they couldn’t get the system to work at all. Though they asked the supplier to run tests and locate the source of the trouble, they saw no improvement whatsoever. The project was threatening to run overbudget and overshoot delivery time.
