Appendix C: Materials for Meetings

C.1 Handout and Role Cards for Fuselage Design Meeting


Your company Cruise Liner, located in Sydney, Australia, has been producing a very successful commercial aeroplane, the CL100, for short-haul routes, with 150 units sold to 30 airlines over the past 20 years. Now it intends to enter the long-range passenger market with a new aircraft design, since, owing to the growing business in Asia and South America, airlines have expressed their need for such an aeroplane within the next 10 to 20 years. The new airliner should carry between 250 and 300 passengers over a range from 5,900 to 9,000 miles. Market research suggests a global demand of 30 new aircraft in this category each year. Your company has started the initial concept phase, and an engineering team has been assigned the task to propose a concept for the fuselage design of the CL111. A meeting has been called with leading design engineers who need to decide which characteristics and parameters the fuselage concept may show.

Design considerations may involve fuel storage, cargo compartment layout, passenger compartment requirements, seating arrangement, number and location of emergency exits, wing and tailplane attachments, landing gear solutions and other aspects you are aware of.
