Sean Blechschmidt, '14, won the best presentation and presentation with the best content awards at the western regional ASME Old Guard student presentation competition at Highline Community College, Saturday, April 12, 2014. Eight teams from University of Idaho, Olympic College, EWU, CWU, Green River CC, and Tacoma CC joined the competition.
To promote engineers' ability to synthesize issues and communicate effectively to diverse audiences, ASME's Student Professional Development Conference (SPDC) program holds the annual Old Guard Oral Presentation Competition. This competition is designed to evaluate ability to deliver clear, concise and effective oral presentations because that skill is vital in engineering practice.
Sean's presentation titled "Quick Attach Clevis & Adjustable Tie Rod" was a summary of his senior design project advised by Prof. Cornwell, sponsored by the Boeing Company, and contributed by his teammates, Steven Gose, Aaron Mendez, and Alberto Valdiviez. The project team was tasked by the Boeing Interiors Responsibility Center to present two designs, the Quick Attach Clevis and the Advanced Adjustable Tie Rod, to accelerate aircraft interior assembly and reconfiguration operations. The team has successfully designed the Quick Attach Clevis to reduce both the installation time and the number of mechanics required. The team has also designed an adjustment mechanism for the Tie Rods as shown in the figure below to allow Boeing to reduce the number of tie rods that must be kept in their inventory.
