Final Presentation to Ford

The director of the CDR made a trip to Ford Headquarters in Dearborn MI, to present the work of last semesters teams. The project for last term was to redesign the automatic gearshift for the entire Ford line of automatic shifters from the F150 to the fiesta. In the end three teams developed a total of six proposed shifters as the result of the semester long project. Each team were able to test their designs in a open public venue, complete with working prototypes, ballots for public scoring and still and video captures of the products being used. The summary of this test was made in the form of the final presentation to a Ford representative who had been part of the project since its beginning launch. Afterward the teams had the opportunity to refine their candidates before they were brought to Ford and a presentation to senior administrators, researchers and engineers.
