Mechanical Engineering MS Project Presentation by Mr. Matthew J. Pladsen DATE: January 23, 2020 TIME: 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. LOCATION: Textile Building, Room 101E TOPIC: Feasibility Study for Insourcing the Manufacturing of MIL-C-882 Specification Pads ABSTRACT: Preformed laminated fabric pads are exceptionally suited for the reduction of impact shock, vibration, and structure-borne noise. They are manufactured to the MIL-C-882 military specification. There is currently only one known manufacturer of this material. This feasibility study will analyze the technical requirements, production capacity, facility considerations, economic impact, and risks associated with developing a machine to produce this product in-house (for a particular company).
