Abstract

Caterpillar Inc. is a worldwide leader in earth moving machinery. This project, in collaboration with Shanghai University, established a new access system for the oil filter on a Mid-Sized loader. This task was completed by first gathering design criteria from Caterpillar. Using the established design criteria and ISO specifications a design matrix was established and used to narrow designs down. The final designs were then optimized and sent to Caterpillar for review and feedback before choosing the final design.
