Design process, creative design, simple structures, shafts, bearings couplings and brakes; mechanical power transmission. Production quality, process design and production management.
In terms of the design material students are taught to do what design engineers do, namely to use innovative and creative skills; to continue to develop engineering communication skills, such as report writing, engineering drawing, and oral presentation; and finally to apply the science of engineering (learnt in the other subject areas) to real world engineering problems. The course introduces some of the main engineering components and shows how to select them and use them in design. In terms of the production engineering module the course continues the thread of measurement and statistical process control from ENME221 by introducing the concepts of quality management, production planning and management, process and plant design, and health and safety practices.The course lays the foundation for ENME311 in Semester 2 in the progression of design skill and by advancing the understanding of production issues.
On successful completion of this course students will be able to:Establish objectives and criteria for engineering design from conflicting user requirements.Undertake conceptual design including creating solutions from scratch and evaluating their feasibility against competing functional and manufacturability constraints Analyse and optimise designs by selecting appropriate methods and applying basic engineering sciences Synthesise solutions for a novel engineering design-problem, where that involves assessing loads, making design decisions, and selecting machine elementsProduce an integrated engineering solution for a broad problem that is not fully defined and is open ended.Undertake an engineering design problem in a methodical and professional mannerProduce an engineering design report with calculation set and engineering drawings.Understand personal response strategies to deal with mistakes in a professional wayDesign a bearing housing, shaft; select bearings, couplings, lubrication and seals.Undertake CAD modelling and drawing using assembliesPresent design ideas orally and in writingUnderstand the principles of production quality and production planning
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
