Improving Design Quality with Computers - Harvesting Equipment 670721

An engineering design group can increase its effectiveness by using a computer to solve daily routine problems. However, certain requirements of computer hardware and personnel training must first be satisfied.
Various basic computer applications which have proved useful to one harvesting equipment design group are presented in this paper. These applications apply to the daily problems of simple tabulation, test data reduction, and design optimization.
One of the programs can assist in the design of a three-sheave belt drive. A listing of this program is included to facilitate its use on any computer which has a Fortran compiler.
