Recommended prerequisites:
Manufacturing-basic level; classical manufacturing method as operational
sketch, important parameters of the methods, physical and chemical
basics.
Targeted learning outcomes:
Presentation of the manufacturing process as part of production
environment, regarding logistics, quality assurance, productivity, process
security and engineering. Very important is the consideration of the
process chain and the optimisation as to quality and productivity. In depth
knowledge about CNC-programming will bring up problems and effects of
integrated data storage. The typically process chain being CNC-turning
starts with the generation of geometric data from CAD or for laser or jet
cutting with the CNC-programming. Students learn how to identify
problems of the automatically programming of complex operations (such
as milling). The first step for this is to find a mathematical model for the
manufacturing process.
Content:
Advanced manufacturing methods are part of a highly automated
production environment. They ensure high quality and productivity with
only a small need of manpower. But, on the other hand, there is an
increased need of highly qualified personnel designing such processes.
Information technology is an integrated part of the design, simulation and
implementation of the manufacturing methods. Students will learn how
CNC-machines and robots work as manufacturing and logistical unit.
Study / exam achievements:
In 60 minutes you answer some typically questions of manufacturing.

Classroom work
1. Lecture classes during which the main topics of the subject will be
dealt with. Lecture classes are the most efficient way to transmit
information and they allow the teacher to stress the important
points of the subject and to present the most appropriate ways to
study.
2. Classroom practice consisting in solving theoretical problems
related to the contents presented in the lectures. This kind of
practice is a good complement to lecture classes, both to allow
students to understand the subject and to teach them how to
solve exercises.
3. Computer practice consisting in resolution of problems by means
of Finite-Element-Analysis software tools. During these sessions,
students can show their skill in using software programmes to
solve problems.
4. Tutorial sessions are also an efficient complement to lectura
clases. They provide direct contact between the teacher and the
student during which the latter can express his doubts freely and
have them clearly solved.
5. Evaluation will be carried out through oral presentations of a team
work and a final written exam.
Personal work
1. Team work. Some projects will be suggested in order to have
them developed by groups of two students. These projects will
require using both manual calculations and FEA software tools.
2. Individual work during which the student studies the concepts
taught during the classes.
