Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
The project group worked with Middleton Aerospace to design an improved manufacturing process for an aircraft engine turbine housing, utilizing six sigma and lean manufacturing concepts to shorten lead-time and improve part flow. The current manufacturing process was studied, a computer simulation of the process was created, and a new process was developed, incorporating changes to cell layout, order of operations, and work in process. The client's specifications were met, and Middleton Aerospace plans to implement the recommended changes.
