1 Strong design experience.  Why design system improvements for the first time with new recruits?  We have usually done it before at small and big scales.

2 Our operational experience is strong enough to trouble-shoot commissioning problems that others may struggled with.

3 Sometimes fiddling with computers and numbers is not enough.  We provide monitoring / data logging equipment and services when fact is better than hypothesis.
