Mechanical Engineering Department Seminar Personalized Production Paradigm

Summary: Mechanical Engineering Department Seminar
Personalized Production Paradigm
Yoram Koren

10:30 am - 11:30 am
Room 1690 CSE (Comp Science Bldg)
Future personalized production of automobile interiors will boost the US economy and create
new jobs. Instead of compromising on an interior design offered by the auto manufacturer,
buyers will be able to design their new car interiors according to their needs: Starting from an
open interior space and filling it with available modules.
Automobile interior future modules may
include file cabinets, computer stations,
sport equipment, microwaves, refrigerators,
beds, dog baskets, folding tables, clothing
racks, portable-potties for kids, etc.
We are proposing an open-architecture
structure for such mechanical components
for passenger cars, parallel to the i-Phone
open-architecture software, and to the PC
open-architecture electro-software.
