OBJECTIVE 
The objective of this project was to determine the feasibility of manufacturing a plasticwidget. All required information to conduct the study was supplied by XYZ Company. Thisinformation included the following:
Part drawings or sketches
Description of part application and requirements
Production information
Miscellaneous information as requested
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 
Given the part design and requirements, the manufacturing materials and process wereselected (see Table 1.1). The parts were determined to be injection molded from a general-purpose polypropylene material. After selecting the process and material, there were thenseveral types of molds selected to manufacture the parts. The mold types are as follows:
1. Single Cavity, Center Sprue gate, (SC, CSG)2. Single Cavity, Hot Runner Edge gated, Fan or Multiple Tab gates (SC, HREG)3. Two Cavity, Hot Runner Edge gated, Fan or Multiple Tab gates (TC, HREG)
