Ethical Case Study - Building the Spring Factory on Maple Street - A Narrative (AIA# TCEBSF) (1 credit hours)
This course tells the story of one engineerís instructive experience planning,  assembling, installing and starting up a spring factory to make large coil springs for railroad cars while carefully adhering to his standards of ethics.  The course describes the steps to reach the final goal of producing thirty tons daily of large coil springs of good quality.  The story includes descriptions of problems encountered along the way and their ultimate solutions.  Part of the difficulties included working ethically with competing departments within the company, dealing with unreliable contractors and correcting mistakes made by all.  There is much time spent in adapting existing equipment to keep costs within budget.  Itís a little sad, a little funny and very instructive for anyone endeavoring to take on a new project with something with which you have no prior experience. 
James Thompson
