Course evaluation:


For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

The course is based on knowledge from:
- Mechanics and solid mechanics
- Material science and engineering


The course focuses on the foundations of industrial manufacturing technology with special emphasis on how the design affects the manufacturing costs. It will provide knowledge about manufacturing processes and how the manufacturing system should be designed.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- Select manufacturing process with respect to costs and quality aspects
- Adjust product design to current manufacturing conditions
- Perform calculations in order to design tools and choose feasible machine tools


The course is introduced with a survey of the manufacuring department in todays industry. The role of the production engineering is enlightened and thereafter the different manufacturing methods, mostly for metal, are systematically classified and discussed with regard to energy consumption, production methodology, tools and machines, material properties and information transfer. Also the results of manufacturing, tolerances and surface quality will be considered.
Casting and Design aspects for Casting
Powder metallurgy
Basic plasticity theory
Basic FEA for forming
Metal forming: Rolling, extrusion, forging etc
Basic metal cutting theory
Metal cutting: Turning, milling & drilling
Joining: Welding, brazing and soldering
Introduction to Manufacturing Systems: NC-machines and NC-information preparation
Laboratory work:
Experimental analysis within metal cutting (turning).


The course is defined by lectures, exercises and laboratory work.
