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.
