As part of a project incubator program at my university, I am trying to understand current specific issues, cumbersome processes, and obstacles facing engineering projects in industry. By pinpointing a specific issue, my team and I would be able to develop a potential solution to the problem.
For instance, I read about how this team of engineers designed a tray that can stick onto inclined surfaces (airplane nose, etc.) so that technicians can easily handle tools.
I consider myself a creative person and love to come up with solutions. However, I need to identify specific inefficiencies and issues in industry. As I do not have work experience, I am hoping that you can provide that insight. As many of you come from a wide range of industries and different positions, I would really value your input and opinion.
Thank you for your help!
