Abstract

Under Caterpillar, Inc. sponsorship, three WPI students and three HUST students collaborated to redesign the battery box of the 980H2 Steel Mill Application Wheel Loader to solve any interference and reduce cost. The team gathered design specifications and created an evaluation system using multiple criteria. The team achieved the goal and demonstrated cost reduction opportunities in the designs generated. Finally, ideas for the relocation of the lifting eyes were produced.
