Abstract

This project, in collaboration with Shanghai University, established a new rack design to help transport large fabrication parts for Caterpillar Suzhou, China. This project was completed by first gathering necessary information from Caterpillar to allow for design criteria to be established. Using the design criteria, a convergent design process was followed to narrow down three initial designs to one final optimum design. The most optimum design was then validated before being offered to Caterpillar for future use.
