Creation of Industrial Engineering strategies for Intelligent Manufacturing Cells

The goal of the project will be to further refine and enhance P&WC’s (Pratt & Whitney Canada) near and long term Industrial Engineering strategies with respect to development and deployment of Intelligent Manufacturing Cells. Firstly, an understanding of current P&WC Intelligent Manufacturing Cell Projects in parallel with surveying leading Industrial Engineering (IE) research and application development for integration of similar cells within best-in-class mechanical manufacturing industries will be developed. Secondly, the work will endeavor to define the scope of current and future cell integration requirements, technology gaps, and opportunities with a view to supporting the establishment of a domestic research and development infrastructure to support and promote the deployment of Intelligent Manufacturing Cell solutions within the Canadian supply chain. Finally, the student will assist P&WC in developing a vision for the advancement of Intelligent Manufacturing Cells including a technology portfolio for research and development of innovative new IE strategies, as well
as developing the Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) required to support the emergence of these technologies within Industry
