upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
- Describe the impact of process planning and its activities for batch production and describe the links between the activities (e.g. input / output relationships, their effects on each other)
- Compare and select materials and processes for a given part/component for batch production and justify the choices
- Apply process plan for a given part/component with specified material, processes, and batch size, and analyze the plan against the time and cost
- Apply a process plan for batch production of a given part/ component to meet given time and cost requirements
This is a part of Module 3 of the Bachelor Industrial Design Engineering. See here for the compete description of this module.|
The broad goal of this course is to produce process plans specifically for batch manufacture of products. In a few words, process planning is an act of converting designs into workable instructions. It involves selection and sequencing of processes and operations to transform a raw material into a finished component, along with associated decisions on component purchase or fabrication and material and process selection. The students will learn how to integrate and make the best of their knowledge and skills of both manufacturing and industrial design areas acquired in the previous modules, and apply them to plan processes so as to come up with a complete work instructions required for manufacture of a product that meets certain requirements.
Assessment includes two formative, three summative assessment tasks, and one peer-review. The formative assessments are in-class activities and run right after the lecture. The three summative assessment tasks are: one written exam (individual) on the theory, two projects (group) focusing on drafting process plans.
