Real Case Scenario for Cost Event

The following is the Real Case scenario for participating teams at Formula North 2017:


Unforeseen economic and geopolitical events made the price of aluminum jump by 1000%. This directly affects the supply chain for your manufacturing departments, which means all the parts that are costed as made.

In this real case scenario, you have to highlight which one (1) of the following two major systems would be the most affected by this market upset: the Drivetrain or the Unsprung mass. Then, you have to present a design and manufacturing strategy that minimizes the effect of the cost spike of that highlighted system.
