Using this speculative information we went ahead and prepared our design drawings. The procurement people got bids from switchboard suppliers and placed orders. As the actual motor sizes were firmed up by the process engineers and this information issued to us we revised our drawings. The procurement people issued the revised drawings to the switchboard suppliers with change-orders and the suppliers modified what they were making. This was an ongoing process until the switchboards we (...) Read more? Sign up for free
