Re: Supply Chain Considerations

I agree and what I found really interesting was the effect of just one part - fasteners - could have on production. I spent my engineering career designing and building test sets for in-house use so the logistics of mass production never entered the equation - each test set was never duplicated more than  2-3 times. I enjoyed reading this article and learning about a well-thought out design for a fastener for OEMs and even more, getting a peek into how challenging the logistics can be for mass production.

Supply Chain Considerations

Very well thought out product solution that addresses logistic considerations in addition to design considerations.  This should help to boost sales for this product line.

Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
