On completion of this course, the student will be able to: 

Manufacturing 1
  • give an overview of the existing manufacturing processes and their characteristics
  • describe and explain differences and similarities between the 6 groups of manufacturing processes and the individual processes themselves
  • explain how the processes are influenced by: material choice of the product (part); quality requirements of the product (part); geometric features of the product; technical limits of production equipment and tools;(part); product (part) quantities to be produced
  • select a suitable production process for a given (part of a )product
  • analyze mechanical design problems using engineering design principles, present alternative solution concepts and make an informed decision
  • mention and characterize machine elements in mechanical design, and analyze them in relation to system specifications
  • evaluate the relation between function, material, connection method, shape, size and cost of machine elements
  • understand design principles for mechanical power transmission systems, including mechanical drives, gears, shafts and bearings, and apply these in a practical context
  • analyze mechanical loads on constructions, machine elements and standardized connection types
  • evaluate simple mechanical constructions and make a justified selection and design using standardized machine elements
  • translate the workpiece drawing of a machined part into a work preparation
  • Describe the choices for the production process of the prototype and elaborate into pieces
  • translate the workpiece drawing of a machined part into a work preparation
  • Technical drawing
  • sketch and interpret a technical drawing
  • analyze a technical drawing and sketch regarding the functional performance of the various  components
  • apply the technical drawing rules, usual in mechanical engineering
  • think better in spatial representations
  • use the 3D CAD system SolidWorks
  • describe and explain the complete production cycle of a product
  • Describe the choices for the production process of the prototype and elaborate into pieces
  • explain what the effect is on the complete production cycle of a (part of a) product caused by: automation, quality of processes and testing, engineering metrology, safety
  • apply several design aspects of machine elements regarding the production method used
  • identify several aspects of normalization
  • Make drawings (digital with solid works) of the designed prototype  

This is a part of Semester 1 of the Bachelor Mechanical Engineering (UT-VU) See here for the compete description of this semester.

MANUFACTURING 1 is the first course in the DESIGN & MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING learning line. The course Manufacturing focuses on learning to select the right production processes for products and parts of products from the design and production perspective. During block 1 students will get acquainted with the basic knowledge of manufacturing. During block 2 and 3 students will get acquainted with manufacturing techniques and the boundary conditions of manufacturing.
