This course consists of two separate parts (a part Manufacturing and a part Technical Product Definition/Machine Parts). Both separate parts have their own goals.|
Goals for Manufacturing (2.0EC).
As a result of the course Manufacturing a student can:
- reproduce the theory of manufacturing systems and apply that theory to determine how products and components of products, the best can be made;
- describe and apply the basic knowledge of the main manufacturing processes and the required materials;
- describe and apply the basic knowledge of the main machines and the necessary job preparation making;
- describe the entire production cycle of a product, including the production control and quality;
- describe the automation aspects of production;
- describe the cost aspects which are associated with the manufacturing process.
Goals for Technical Product Definition (1.5EC)
As a result of the course Technical Product Definition a student can:
- 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;
- use the 3D CAD system SolidWorks;
- think better in spatial representations;
- identify several aspects of normalisation;
- apply several design aspects of machine elements regarding the production method used.
Goals for Machine Parts (1.5EC)
As a result of the course Machine Parts a student can:
- Identify and characterize design engineering aspects of machine parts;
- Analyze certain machine parts based on system requirements;
- Analyze mechanical loads on static machine parts;
- Design (dimension) and analyze common methods of mechanical joining;
- Design (dimension) rotating machine parts based on system requirements;
- Evaluate simple mechanical constructions and make competent design choices.

Technical Product Definition:
Students will learn the language of a mechanical engineer: technical drawing. They will learn to make sketches by hand and how to use SolidWorks to create a good technical drawing. This will be done by performing several assignments..
Students get a first introduction into the field of mechanical engineering and into the design of standardized machine parts. Students learn how system requirements influence the mechanical design. Modeling of static loads on constructions and common methods of mechanical joining are addressed. Also, rotating machine parts such as axles, couplings, transmissions and bearings are addressed.
