The Goal

Parts Store E Commerce

Design a desktop application easy to use interface, robust gas properties program, allowing for the estimation of interstage water and hydrocarbon dropout. Compressor selection and performance prediction, Multi-service and multi-stage compressors, Case manager and packager manager for the evaluation of multiple operating points and multiple unit selections, Adjust-to-flow & adjust-to-load calculations.

Providing Users with frame and cylinder data sheets. Extensive report generation features. Calculation of crank-effort and mass elastic Standard comments and exceptions to API and ISO specifications , and access to equipment outline drawings and gas passage data, & finally Multi-run calculations with Compressor Performance Plots.

"I am motivated by necessary and challenging solutions with an understanding that the result is proportional to the effort.".

" key learnings points:

  • More user testing
  • Thinking beyond the data
  • The power of collaboration: bringing a mix of people from different departments into the conversation".
