The Design Process
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: The student will:
1. Understand common material properties and applications.
2. Understand manufacturing processes as they relate to the manufacturing and fabrication of consumer products.
- Mass reducing processes
- Mechanical reducing (shearing and chip reducing)
- Thermal reducing (torch, electrical discharge machine, and high-energy rate machining)
- Mass conserving (Molding/Laminating)
- Mass conserving deformation (forging, extruding, drawing, rolling, and bending)
- Joining processes (Mechanical, Thermal, and Chemical)
3. Gain an ability to function on a multi-disciplinary team, and develop the understanding of how a design and manufacturing environment involves a total team effort.
4. Gain an ability to communicate effectively.
5. Develop the creative aspects of engineering design and the design process in the design and manufacturing of a group project.
