CAD 270 - Design for Manufacturing


Course Description:  

This course will study the major principles for designing a quality, cost-efficient product by creating designs that employ the best cost and manufacturing processes. Topics include design for manufacturing, design for assembly, process selection in manufacturing, inspection planning, concurrent engineering product re-engineering, quality management. The focus is on engineering designs and system approaches that affect cost quality, cycle time, and maintainability.
Prerequisite(s): Completion of CAD 110 and CAD 169
Note(s): N/A

Course Student Learning Outcomes:
  • Use a systematic procedure to analyze a proposed design from the point of view of assembly and manufacturing
  • Evaluate quantitatively the impact of design choices on manufacturing cost
  • Use modern quality control concepts and approaches
  • Use modern software tools to accurately model parts for specific manufacturing operations.
