Linamar Corporation has hired Titan Consulting to design a solution to an ergonomics issue at the CAMTAC facility in Guelph, Ontario. A xed mechanical rotator has been proposed, including engineering drawings, a bill of materials, and a written report documenting the design process and results. The design process and solution is summarized and recommendations for implementation are given.

Created in fulfillment of the course requirements for ENGG*3100 Engineering and Design III. This course combines the knowledge gained in the advanced engineering and basic science courses with the design skills taught in ENGG*1100 and ENGG*2100 in solving open-ended problems. These problems are related to the student's major. Additional design tools are presented, including model simulation, sensitivity analysis, linear programming, knowledge-based systems and computer programming. Complementing these tools are discussions on writing and public speaking techniques, codes, safety issues, environmental assessment and professional management. These topics are taught with the consideration of available resources and cost.
