There were maybe 100 really advanced users, including aerodynamicists from NASA and everywhere else, who were innovators.
"Back at Grove, we have 500 people in the team, most of them are the best at what they do in the field from engineers to aerodynamicists to vehicle dynamicists, a big variation of people and they have risen to the top of their chosen field, so I think there is a lot of parallels in terms of bringing excellence to the field," Wolff explained.
Meeting these requirements requires the participation of aerodynamicists, structural analysts, materials engineers, process engineers, and controls engineers, each of whose design decisions affect those of other members of the rotor, turbine, and Wind Power Plant (WPP) design teams.
In an already secure building, access to the RP Lab requires additional clearance because of the work performed there, Operating around the clock, the highly trained team of technicians is vital to the global base of GM designers, aerodynamicists and engineers who achieve huge gains in creativity, flexibility and accuracy along with dramatic savings in time and money.
"We have chosen to give our aerodynamicists and engineers an extra 10 days - which doesn't sound much but in Formula One terms that's a long period of time - to find more performance.
