Comprehensive consideration of both basic terms, relations, and the whole of the topic as well as actual research in the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to generate data-integrated holisms of close-to-manufacturing engineering design, process and operations planning, of manufacturing and quality engineering. Computer aided geometric modelling and production engineering optimization of both products and the corresponding manufacturing processes. Mathematical basics for product modelling, exemplary skills in using advanced CAD/CAM software systems to generate 3D-CAD models for free-form objects, information transfer from CAD- to quality-assured product models. The main topics in this course will include:
The course aims at establishing understanding of the basic knowledge about principles of computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) systems. The course offers an introduction at intermediate level as well as practical abilities in the application of components and interdisciplinary relations that emerge when modern information and communication technologies (ICT) are utilised for the further industrialisation supported by computer-aided engineering tools particularly towards manufacturing of products in goods industries.
Knowledge and understanding:
Coursework / Course requirements
An assignment exercise regarding design of a small-scale geometric model. The mandatory exercises have to be handed in and approved by the teacher.
Examination and assessment
3 hour written exam account for 100% of the grade in the course.
The course is evaluated through ECTC system (A-F), where F is a fail.
For students failed in the written exam, a re-sit written exam will be arranged for this course.
