Sisson, Richard D.
The file transportation system currently in use by Iron Mountain has been thought to be insufficient. It was the goal of this MQP to work with Iron Mountain's Special Projects Team to design a more efficient, safe and secure system. Once the specific areas of interest were introduced, the investigation phase began. This included background, patent and benchmark examination as well as a survey of the current system to note specific defects and strengths. An investigation of alternatives proceeded, leading to the initial designs. A prototype was built and presented to Iron Mountain for their intermediary critique. The final design and prototype were tested, evaluated and analyzed. Our final solution was a side loading cart that Met Iron Mountain's as well as our performance specifications.
