Abstract:

We propose a system of methods to help automate the design of customizable mufflers, as well as modular manufacturing techniques targeted at mid volume manufacturing quantities. A successful solution would reduce the price point of a muffler to an estimated 500 per unit for a run size between 10 and 1000 units. In the ideal case, customers would not need to inventory mufflers because lead times would be fast and managed.
