ENME311-16S2 (C) Semester Two 2016

Engineering Design and Production Management

15 points, 0.1250 EFTS
11 Jul 2016 - 13 Nov 2016


Engineering design reports, design for fatigue, fasteners, welded joints, cranes: use of engineering codes, pressure vessel design, hydraulic machinery.

In terms of the design material students are taught more in-depth engineering design methods than ENME 301 and cover procedures that are not included in the engineering science subjects. In particular it further their skills in engineering report writing, calculation sets and drawing presentation. It introduces the use of standards. Overall students are brought to a level where they can undertake a substantial engineering design problem in a methodical manner, and can produce a professional quality design report.

In terms of the production engineering module the course continues by introducing the concepts of process design and various methods of production management and health and safety practices required in the production environment. It also covers issues of recall and packaging.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this course students will be able to:
 Produce a conceptual and detailed design solution for an open-ended system that is only partially defined at the conceptual level
 Produce a professional design report including calculation set, and drawings.
 Design pressure vessels by creating a conceptual solution to a problem and applying standards to complete the detailed design
 Design components and steel structures using sections, bolted joints and welds, subjected to fatigue loading
 Produce design solutions that accommodate functional constraints as well as manufacturability, production economics, aesthetics, and safety.
 Understand design responsibilities regarding risk, reserve/safety factors, and ethical considerations
 Tackle basic process design and understand process management methods
 Know and apply the health and safety process required in a manufacturing environment.
