Shipping Configuration Optimization

Technical Tasks:

  • Perform the container and trailer analysis
  • Form the most likely combinations of part data base
  • Develop suggested loading plan
  • Develop package design


Deliverables: 
A report on Tasks 1 and 2 will be formed at the end of month six, and a final report documenting the simulation and experimental results will be delivered at the end of the project.


Overview:
Develop optimized shipping configuration and explore the design procedure for cost effective shipping configuration. Origami, advanced mechanisms analysis and multi-body dynamics, will be used in the process. This project is dedicated to develop the optimized shipping configuration and explore the design procedure for cost effective and high product value for CTD founding members.
