|Project Title||Modernization of Nickel Electroplating at Depots|
|Project Lead||Bill Chenevert, NCMS, 734-995-7989, email@example.com|
|TI Goals Supported||P-1, C-2, S-3|
|Focus Area||Metal Working|
|Implemented Technology||Nickel Electroplating|
|Problem Definition||Current DoD nickel plating process is labor intensive and time consuming|
|Proposed Solution||Implement new nickel electroplating tooling into DoD maintenance activities|
Reduce processing steps by 50%. Reduce set-up time my at least 75%. Reduce plating thickness requirements by 50% or more. Reduce machining/grinding time by at least 50%. Reduce turnaround time by at least 50%. Reduce reject/rework rates to below 5%.
|Benefits||Reduced overall plating and machining production costs of 50% or more.|
