CONS06048 2019 Project Design and Management
The overall aim of this module is to introduce students’ to the design process and to equip them with the foundation skills needed to produce 3D CAD models and 2D detailed drawings of projects, typically encountered in the wood manufacturing and construction industry.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Demonstrate an understanding of the design process and employ recognised design techniques.
Produce freehand sketches, orthographic and pictorial of projects in the wood manufacturing and construction industry
Demonstrate design solutions through the use of solid modelling CAD system to create 3D models and fully dimensioned detail drawings of products encountered in the wood manufacturing and construction industry.
Understand material and process selection impose on the designed project
Demonstrate an understanding of the management process of a design project encountered in the wood manufacturing and construction industry from commencement to completion.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
In addition to the normal CAD lectures and practical classes, Designers Practitioners working in industry will be invited as guest lecturers and site visits to companies will be arranged, where possible.
Module Assessment Strategies
100% continuous assessment will involve the assessment of all assignments undertaken in class, design project activity completed independently.
Repeat Continuous assessment
The Design Process: The nature of design, design process models, design activities.
Freehand Sketching: Freehand sketching techniques, quality of presentation, orthographic projection pictorial sketches.
Computer Aided Design: Introduction to a CAD system, use of solid modelling CAD system to create 3D models and fully dimensioned detail drawings of projects
Individual Design Project Work: Design brief, design specification, concepts and alternatives, concept sketches, evaluation of alternatives, details drawings, project reports and presentations.
Management process: management of projects, cutting list, project scheduling
