FUNDAMENTALS OF DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING
Engineering design process and its structure. Identification and analysis of need, product design specifications, standards of performance and constraints.
Searching for design concepts; morphological analysis, brainstorming. Evaluation of design concepts for physical reliability, economic feasibility and utility.
Detailed design; design for manufacture, assembly, shipping, maintenance, use, and recyclability.
Design checks for clarity, simplicity, modularity and safety. Standardization and size ranges. Reliability and robust design. Design organisation and communication, . technical reports, drawings, presentations and models.
Concept of manufacturing; classification of manufacturing processes. Fundamentals of casting. Basic understanding of commonly used casting processes (sand casting, investment casting and permanent mould casting processes).
Fundamentals of metal forming; hot and cold working; basic understanding of primary metal forming processes (rolling, forging, extrusion and drawing processes, punching and blanking).
