Customer and Sponsor Involvement

Sponsor: Dresser-Rand Comapny

Dresser-Rand plans to offer insights and contact through the Senior Design project to ensure that modification of the compressor is successful and will add value to themselves and RIT. Through Dresser-Rand contacts and resources, fault guidelines and implementation can be achieved. Successful downgrade of outlet conditions is dependent on maintaining proper contact throughout Senior Design. The Dresser-Rand contact will participate in all project reviews and deliverables. Trips down to Dresser-Rand facilities to view operations and product fabrication will be done in Senior Design I. The sponsor will participate with team communications electronically, through the possible use of web site as well.

Faculty Guide: Dr. Margaret Bailey

The team will be expected to carry out the vast majority of their interactions with the Team Guide. The sponsor will be available for a series of meetings during the course of the project, and will meet with a group of teams during the beginning of SD1 to lay out common goals, objectives, and philosophies for the project's purpose. The guide will lay the ground work for what RIT is trying to achieve by running this project.
