ACADEMIC PROGRAMME: Mechanical Engineering, Bsc
COLLEGE/SCHOOL/FACULTY: School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
STATUS: Elective
PROGRAMME TYPE: Undergraduate

Course Description


Course examines the basic manufacturing processes from product design through production

and quality testing.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

To study how a design can be made suitable for various manufacturing and assembly process requirements.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, the student should be able to:

  •  Learn the dimensioning details needed for building and assembling a manufacturing unit.
  •   Learn the application of CNC machines has impacted manufacturing.
  •   Explain the advantages and disadvantages of using machining in a manufacturing environment
  • Identify the major axis of a machine and identify where the program zero point should be for any given project.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The students will be able to:

  •  Program  simple  lathe  and  mill  parts  requiring  notches,  radius  edges,  drill  hole patterns, part profiles, and pocket milling. Programs will be generated using “G” and “M” codes.
  •  Read a  detailed  blue print, Pick the  tooling necessary for  machining, create  the program to build the part, and be able to QC the finished part using micrometers,
  • calipers, and other specialized measurement equipment.
  •   Look at a potential product and decide how to design the parts for manufacturability, and outline how the elements of constraint management limit the assembly process...
