English term or phrase: cookie-cutter approach
En un artículo acerca del trabajo en campos petroleros:

"As recently as December 2000, the Burgos team assessed its processes and found its engineers were consuming 95 percent of their time working with “cut-and-paste” well construction programs. Most of their well designs followed a cookie-cutter approach that recycled as much as 80 percent of their specifications from previous designs because engineering resources were limited and the wells in Burgos are drilled extremely fast."

"La mayoría de sus diseños de pozo fueron clónicos, reciclando ..."
