Course specific prerequisites

Manufacturing technology basic course.

Aim

The objective of the course is to put the most important manufacturing processes in to a context of a production environment. The objective is further to introduce and train some important different work tasks engineers in this field will have; process development and optimisation, quality problem resolutions, and process selection.

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

- Describe the most important manufacturing processes with respect to applications, economics and environmental impact.
- Explain the role of manufacturing processes in a production system, including their necessity of appropriate equipment, tooling and automation based on for instance volume of production.
- Understand and be able to explain the link between the basic function of a manufacturing process, the tools used and its resulting product features (for instance tolerances and surface characteristics).
- Make a basic selection of a manufacturing process in the context of a process chain for a finished part.
- Describe how some of the most common parts and products in modern industry are manufactured.
- Understand the role of control limits and specifications limits for process capability analysis.
- Understand the basic industrial practice for measurement system capability determination.

Content

- The role of manufacturing processes in a production system
- Metal forming with a focus on modern sheet metal forming processes
- Metal cutting focusing on milling and advanced machining
- Precision machining and surface engineering
- Introduction to unconventional methods, focusing on laser technology
- Joining focusing on sheet metal joining and introduction to adhesives joining and soldering
- Process development and optimisation
- Process selection
- Introduction to quality engineering focusing on process capability and measurement systems analysis.

Organisation

The course will consist of :
A series of lectures, including guest-lecturers of experts in the respective field.  Four laboratory exercises training the engineering task. Four group assignments follow the labs in which results from the labs are used in an engineering task.

Literature

Course binder, assembled by the department. The binder contains a variety of information sources. Written theory is mixed with scientific articles to get both the basics and the ongoing development of the different manufacturing methods. The binder is sold at Chalmers bookstore Cremona.

Examination including compulsory elements

Written exam, fulfilled group assignement and laboratory work.

The course examiner may assess individual students in other ways than what is stated above if there are special reasons for doing so, for example if a student has a decision from Chalmers on educational support due to disability.
