Unit description

Applies a systems-based engineering approach to analysis and design of advanced manufacturing systems. A scenario-based learning approach is used to guide students in applying a range of practical tools and techniques along with skills in systems analysis, engineering design and project management to a real industry-based engineering project.

Unit content

Module 1: Introduction to advanced manufacturing

Module 2: Design for manufacture and assembly

Module 3: Traditional and non-traditional machining processes

Module 4: Processing of ceramics and additive manufacturing

Module 5: Fabrication of microelectric devices

Module 6: Quality management and control in manufacturing systems

Learning outcomes

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.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1employ a systems approach that integrates a detailed technical knowledge of manufacturing design, quality management, and traditional and non-traditional manufacturing processes with other relevant contextual factors to address a complex problem related to advanced manufacturing systems
2evaluate and creatively apply advanced engineering methods, techniques, tools and resources including 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to analyse and design solutions to a complex problem related to advanced manufacturing systems
3select, define, successfully complete and communicate the outcomes from a complex project related to advanced manufacturing systems
4self-assess conduct and performance as a professional engineer in contributing to the successful completion of a complex project related to advanced manufacturing systems.
