This initiative is a win-win undertaking between your organization and the University of Toronto. While you would have the benefit of improving your business practices, our students would have gained valuable real-life experience of applying the scientific methods they learn.
For our academic year 2011-2012, the number of proposed projects has exceeded the number of projects that our graduating students could take on. As a result, some client proposals unfortunately had to be declined or postponed. The RFP is to help get your project(s) accepted.
Benefits of being a Capstone client
- The projects should be of high value to your organization, typically something you want to do but do not have the resources or knowledge to do it yourself.
- These projects present an opportunity to:
- Introduce new innovative concepts into your organization (e.g., Use of Tabu Search Optimization to reduce production time, use of Simulation to identify operational bottlenecks, Green data centers, Lean Manufacturing practices)
- Attain significant improvements to your organization (e.g., 25% reduction in bottling times, savings of over $1,000,000 per year using a redesigned computer algorithm or equipment)
- Identify bright, future engineers who will soon enter the workforce (many of the students are subsequently hired by the Client)
- Access expertise of our faculty members who interact closely with the student teams and are at the forefront of their fields.
