Meeting Materials Engineering Challenges in a Fast-Changing World

Today’s engineers face many challenges that their predecessors in the chemical processing and oil & gas industries could never imagine. From shrinking budgets and staffs to growing concerns about environmental and safety regulations, to the management of aging plants, more is demanded of those with fewer resources at their disposal than ever before. 

The modern-day process industries engineer must have reliable answers at his or her fingertips. Even the slightest misstep can cost a company millions of dollars in clean-up, repair or replacement costs, unplanned downtime, and in extreme cases, lives. With companies demanding the most from production equipment to keep up with market growth, engineering departments are forced to find ways to keep pace and ensure that their operations are efficient and safe.
