To deliver on this request CTSL formed a local project team which eventually grew to include a total of twenty (20) highly dedicated members.

bpTT Refurbishment Program

CTSL launched the purchasing of “Out of Warranty PCs” for bpTT Staff Members

CTSL launched the purchasing of “Out of warranty PCs” for bpTT staff members. The main project scope was the refurbishment of three hundred and twenty (320) machines to be sold within a three (3) month timeframe, as well as to remove the perception of biasness in the distribution of the equipment. A team of five (5) highly experienced and dedicated personnel were formed to participate in this project. The initial goal was to provide an assessment of the machines in question, and provide an estimate as to the number of machines that would be viable for re-distribution. This figure was a requirement to determine the selling price per machine; which was to be decided by the customer. The team had to work with several project limitations in the delivery of this activity.

  • Firstly all of the machines that were available for use in this project were limited to those PC that had experienced a hardware malfunction and were out of warranty. Machines that were still functional and out of warranty were outside of the scope of this project. This required in-depth testing and repairs from our team of support engineers.
  • Secondly no replacement parts was purchased or made available for these PCs. All parts had to be salvaged from other machines that were not viable for redistribution.

With a revised target of forty (40) machines to be distributed by the first week of December, 2007 the team evaluated one hundred and ten (110) machines to prepare the initial forty (40) machines with an additional five (5) machines determined fully functional.

A specially designed auction website was also created which allowed for machines to be purchased on a first come first serve basis, thereby ensuring transparency within the process. At the end of the project , CTSL successfully completed ith a total of One Hundred and Fifty Six (156) machines being re-distributed to staff members.
