MANUFACTURING

The goal of the manufacturing lead is to schedule, organize, and implement solutions to the manufacturing needs of the team. Since we are a team that manufactures the vast majority of our parts in-house, this means working with each subsystem to determine what must happen to turn their designs into physical parts. Not every ideal CAD model can be manufactured with commonly available tooling, so this lead must help to alter part designs for ease of manufacturing, and work to find other means to create those parts that cannot be altered. Finally and perhaps most importantly, the manufacturing team will work to produce the individual components that make up the car using the wide variety of machines and tooling available in the shop.
