The objective of this project is to create an improved design to replace the set point blocks currently in use throughout Boeing's manufacturing facilities. The set point block is a device used by milling machine operators to accurately set the zero point on the head of the mill. The current block, though simple and easy to use, has problems that can lead to errors in zeroing the mill heads, which in turn lead to errors in the parts produced. Through analysis of the advantages and shortcomings of the current block as well as desires that have arisen from the use of the block we will create an improved version with greater functionality.
