    Prerequisite: "DEN4001 MAT4002"

    This module will develop strategies to identify product requirements, identify design constraints, think creatively, solve problems and identify solutions. It will examine how 3D CAE can be used to create detailed design drawings, create simple assemblies, manufacture prototypes, real parts and also how analytical models such as finite element analysis can be used to evaluate designs. A wide range of different processing techniques will be examined. Various strategies such as failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) that can be used to evaluate the design risk, will be described to determine 'safe' design. The role of inspection and statistical process control techniques in ensuring a robust design and manufacturing process will be examined.
