Description

The objective of this module is to provide a broad, basic introduction to the fundamentals of manufacturing. It will describe the most common processes in use and introduce advanced processes. Manufacturing problems in using these processes and solutions to these will be discussed and applied.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Explain a range of common manufacturing processes.

2.

Choose suitable manufacturing processes based on product requirements.

3.

Calculate metal cutting forces, power requirements and metal removal rates.

4.

Identify and provide solutions to part manufacturing issues.

5.

Describe manufacturing problems with joining processes.

6.

List advantages and disadvantages of additive manufacturing processes.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Fulltime
The theoretical and background material will be presented through a series of lectures. Application of the theory will be demonstrated in class with the aid of case studies and engineering artefacts.  Application fo the concepts will be practised using design selection and manufacturing problems.

Online
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. The theoretical and background material will be presented through a series of lectures. Application of the theory will be demonstrated in class with the aid of case studies.  Application of the concepts will be practised using design selection and manufacturing problems.

Module Assessment Strategies

Theory and some applied elements will be assessed in a final exam. Application of the theory will be assessed based on written reports.

Repeat Assessments

Repeat assessment will involve a final exam and resubmission of reports as determined by the lecturer.
