dc.description TSM416: Technology Capstone
dc.description.abstract Problem Statement: Our client is the Iowa State Transportation Services. They rent out and maintain vehicles for use in the University and university-related travel, excluding CyRide buses. The Transportation Services shop is becoming outdated with both the building's structure and the available resources and technology. The shop needs to be redesigned so that it can serve a more significant number of cars at one time, with a focus on the newer electric vehicles. In terms of repairing their cars in between rentals, the existing layout wastes a lot of time. They have no potential to enhance their process in terms of speeding up time and being more efficient with vehicle turnaround, given their available space. They have achieved their full capacity in the existing space and require a new structure that will provide them with more space. This gives them greater flexibility in their work process and allows them to reduce the time it takes for each vehicle to be ready to go on a return. They also require a more substantial capacity to interact more efficiently with one another in the new location. One of the few unknowns we still have regarding this project is the cost and how much they are willing or able to spend to complete the new facility. The client has not specified what the University is willing to spend on their new shop, so we are still working on a more specific budget.
