dc.description.abstract StandardAero’s AE2100 engine servicing facility is facing some issues in dealing with the handling of engine components. Engines are requiring greater levels of dismantling and the current carts used to store, track and transport engine components (kitting carts) are becoming inadequate. The current carts do not safely handle all of the components that are being dismantled. In order to provide adequate accommodation for the additional components, temporary carts have been procured. The temporary carts provide additional space to store engine components but, because they are general use carts, they do not handle the components in an efficient manner. Thus, the amount of shop floor space required to kit an engine is far too great. This report discusses the design details for a new CCM kitting cart. The new CCM kitting cart design reduces the overall shop space required to kit an AE2100 CCM to 24.75” by 48”. Additionally, the cart can accommodate a CCM in both an assembled or dismantled configuration, further decreasing the floor space required. The wood material provides for easy in-house manufacturing of the cart. Specific accommodations have been made regarding the placement of all CCM components; that is, everything has its specific place. Relatively heavy components, such as the assembled CCM, are placed on a shelf located at approximately waist height reducing the strain on the technicians using the cart. Boxes for miscellaneous components are placed on special trays to make searching for parts easier. Casters provide for ease of mobility of the cart. The total cost of the new CCM kitting cart is CDN $824.52 and is expected to decrease as technicians become more efficient in manufacturing the cart. The modifications recommended to the PTM cart will reduce the floor space required for the cart by moving the casters under the cart. Furthermore, the addition of another shelf will allow for better accommodation of power turbine blade trays. Team 2 believes that the design details discussed in this report adequately address the issues with the current kitting cart system. en_US
