This webinar is about how to rapidly develop new technology. It will describe how a new-generation Rotary Steerable System (RSS) was developed from a blank sheet of paper to first commercial work in just 23 months. It will focus on the importance of developing a clear and simple requirements specification to provide the “True North” direction to keep the project focused and on track and offer simple tools to develop and test such a requirements document. It will discuss how risk was removed from the project, and how a “fail fast” philosophy and adherence to a strict cadence in testing allowed the system to be delivered so quickly. As background to some of the design decisions, the webinar will briefly review how the RSS market has changed over the last two decades, and how, as a direct result of these changes, the design team focused on modular design and rapid turn around of tools, in order to maximize utilization and efficiency. Although the case history is specific to a particular type of tool, the principles used are broadly applicable and should be of interest to anybody practicing innovation and new product development.
