Engineering is all about solving problems with efficient solutions by designing and building various technologies and techniques. In the oil and gas segment and hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI), one of the main challenges is how to maintain aging facilities with old equipment that have no existing original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and spare parts. To overcome this challenge, the author’s company approved reverse engineering as a new methodology to repair obsolete equipment and ensure the availability of their spare parts. Reverse engineering is the process by which a mechanical component can be modeled by evaluating its mechanical and performance characteristics, and its physical
