The aim of the course is to enable students to design and plan the manufacture of assemblies for real machines to:
- Meet the customer’s requirements, including functioning correctly.
- Be designed with the manufacturing and assembly processes in mind.
Outline Of Syllabus
To enable students to:
Use engineering science and common engineering technologies to design fully functional
machines / assemblies that can be manufactured economically and so provide products that will
completely comply with the engineering specification.
- Specification of components for and the detail design of manufacturable, economical and
effective mechanical systems to meet a specified performance.
- Selected manufacturing processes
- Manufacturing process routes
- Selection of economical manufacturing processes, process routes and manufacturing facilities for
typical components and assemblies.
- Design of Structural Frameworks and appropriate FEA tool.
- Design, Manufacture and Testing of Structural Framework.
- Provide all the above in the context of British Industrial practice.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
- Lectures provide case studies, the underlying design methodology and manufacturing methods and demonstrate the integration of engineering science and systems.
- Supervised classes and tutorials provide opportunities to seek advice and to present and discuss all stages of the design project from concept generation and specification to communication of final design.
- Practicals allow students to practise and experience the material taught.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

|Report||1||M||50||Design 2A logbook, model and drawings|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
- The design projects allow students to practise the discipline
- The laboratory report ensures students have absorbed the basics illustrated.
- The manufacturing assignment ensures strong linkage of the manufacturing constraints into the design process.
