Established in 1841, National Oilwell Varco (NOV) of Houston, Texas is a worldwide leader in oilfield products and services.
NOV’s Pressure Control Group (PCG) designs products that improve drilling safety by preventing oil well blowouts and controlling wells during drilling operations. Since the Deepwater Horizon drilling incident in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the oil and gas industry has made a push to improve accountability. NOV’s PCG evolved with the new standards by improving training and assessments to demonstrate that its engineers design quality products, meet regulatory requirements, and follow strict internal guidelines. Since PTC® Creo® has been PCG’s primary design tool for more than 10 years (NOV as a whole has relied on PTC’s products for 20 years), the PCG training team needed to develop a plan to properly train engineers and to prove their competence in using PTC Creo tools for designing and manufacturing the PCG product line.
At the same time, NOV aims to technically dominate its industry. The PCG must produce robust and reliable products that are designed right the first time. Delivering on this objective has been challenging since substantial business growth over the past several years has left the company straining to deliver on a tremendous backlog of business. The PCG needed to ensure that new hires could hit the ground running.
