This paper is written about ALPS group7 works. Our group consists of 5 people, the proposer company, and the mentor. The proposer company is ASKA Company. The company has manufactured and solid plastic products. It is established in1968. This time, the company had a problem like below and we tried to help it.
"We, at ASKA COMPANY, manufacture and sell plastic food containers to distributers such as Glico and Nestle of Japan. Recently, with increasing environmental awareness, we have focused our efforts to produce thin and light plastic food containers. With these modifications, the mechanical properties such as brittleness and strength become increasingly important. However, we were unable to find any safety standard or mechanical testing instrument for plastic food containers on the market."
So, we were focusing on making safe plastic containers at first. The meaning of "safe plastic containers" must be defined. Then, we found out the current state and what the company really wants to do by asking them. As it is known, once it provides the not safe plastic containers, it is going to be very big problem because it is related to food or something like that. We were trying to think the way to prevent the plastic containers from contaminations at ALPS
