Synopsis

The module is aimed at introducing students to principles associated with manufacturing processes and machine tools. This includes the criteria used in selecting the appropriate cutting technology and the mechanics of material removal processes. It discusses various methods of metal working processes and the economics of cutting and machining. Finally it describes important aspects of product design with the objective of designing for manufacture and for assembly.

Outcomes

On completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to:

1

Understand fundamental concepts of manufacturing

2

Understand the Mechanics of material removal processes

3

Apply cutting tool technology

4

Master the process of machining operations and machine tools

5

Understand the metal working processes

6

Apply appropriate techniques in product design

Assessment

Coursework assessment: 45%
Examination: 55%

Workload requirements

The purpose of this module is to introduce the students to a variety of manufacturing processes, with the objective of enabling them to select the most suitable manufacturing process for a task at hand from several available processes.There will be a combination of lectures, that will include interactive elements. Tutorials will require students to conduct individual work (self-assessments; reflecting on learning aspects) and group work (PowerPoint presentations on aspects of the module, role-play and group discussions). Moodle, for sharing learning aids, to help students test their own knowledge through informal quizzes, and to administer short formal tests. All outcomes will be assessed by means assignments, class tests and a final examination.
