Increasing Throughput and Productivity of NORDAM's Manufacturing

Student: Matt DiDonato, 2017-2018

Sponsor: NORDAM, Tulsa, OK

NORDAM continues to bid on and win additional commercial aircraft content. In order to be successful in an increasingly competitive market the business must continually find new and innovative ways to make parts. The primary goal of this ESTEEM project is to help increase throughput and productivity for a selected product line (likely Polaris business class seats or A320 blocker doors). Keys to success will include industrialization mixed with technology such as match die tooling, 3D printing, Thermoplastics or automation.
