Abstract

This thesis will document and analyze the ideation, research and design, production, and optimization processes for the Center for Manufacturing Excellence Senior Capstone design project. The Pens Up! team consisted of six team members- four mechanical engineering majors, one accounting major, and one business major- working together to continuously improve the Ole Miss ballpoint pen’s quality, design, and to standardize and eliminate wastes to its production process. After months of preparing and testing various ideas and ironing out kinks and mistakes, Pens Up! was able to produce a quality aluminum pen. This thesis will describe the various obstacles faced as well as the iterations taken in the optimization process of the Ole Miss Aluminum pen.
