  7. What is a recent challenging problem that you helped solve for a customer and how did you solve it? Yesterday, a customer who handles 55 service plants called me with a problem she was having. She was concerned that they had no clear standard operating procedure for when a problem occurred in their waste water treatment system and was wondering if we had any recommendations. I went over a previous talk that I had given about the importance of recording accurate data for problem solving and gave her some examples of how to record this data and analyze it.
