Project Announcement: Advanced Tools and Methods to Improve Material Handling Equipment Overhaul

The US Navy and Army is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to advance the state of modeling and simulation, advanced engineering, and maintenance methods to refurbish and overhaul a legacy forklift. This initiative seeks to prove out new advanced engineering and manufacturing tools and processes that result in a full system overhaul that is cost effective, extends equipment useful life, and can be completed safely and easily by maintainers. It will further seek to determine if this new approach can be documented and applied to a wide range of MHE equipment.
