Introduces students to the interactions between manufacturing, materials performance and engineering design processes. Students explore this through a team-based reverse engineering exercise. Common and new manufacturing processes are addressed. Students undertake Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Manufacturing (CAM) exercises, including numerically controlled production of a component.
1. Design as a problem solving activity
2. Interactions between manufacturing and design processes
3. Common and new manufacturing processes
4. Materials behaviour in manufacturing
5. Design within manufacturing and material constraints
6. Computational modelling in design
7. Computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) exercises
8. Reverse engineering, manufacturing and assembly project
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
