Dutch term or phrase: weten te verwijderen
Related to my previous question, this expression is giving me a headache. Help!

"Tijdens de risicoanalyse hebben we veel met brainstomsessies gewerkt. Dat bleek een hele uitkomst. Door projectmedewerkers te laten meedenken hebben we de ergste dubbeltellingen weten te verwijderen."

Thanks!
