Value Engineering (VE) is used to maximize the product of a process while utilizing the minimum amount of resources. In previous reporting periods a powder processing hot cell was designed and simulated. A VE study will be initiated for this work cell. A manipulator reliability study and a workspace study are performed in this work period. The above noted studies can be combined, and improvements can be made in the operations of the work cell.
