Abstract

The goal of this project is to assist the Beijing manufacturing facility of Pacific Can in determining a more efficient and economical drying system into the manufacturing process of aluminum cans. We analyzed the current drying process, conducted experiments to determine the feasibility of our proposed alternatives, and created a 3D model of our recommended solution for integration into the current process. Major methods used include engineering design, design of experiment, systems thinking and cost-benefit analysis.
