Manufacturing Process selection and Design for Manufacturing

Learn the principles of process selection and DFM

Course Summary

 Design for manufacturing or DFM is a very important practical activity in Mechanical design engineering.

 Converting concept  into designs which can be manufactured and ready for implementation is a key skill in product development.

This course attempts to cover the basics of designing for manufacturing including selecting a suitable process based on various criteria and designing for the process to reduce cost and improve ease of manufacturing .

Topics covered are :
- Importance of Process selection
- Parameters and Criteria for selection  
- Comparison of processes  
- Process- Shape matrix  
- Section wall thickness and Tolerance ranges  
- Cost associated  
- Part complexity and part cost  
- Prototyping vs production  
- Case studies in process selection  
- Designing for Forging - principles and guidelines  
- Designing for Casting - principles and guidelines  
- Design for Injection Molding  - Principles and guidelines.  
- Exercises to practice

The learning outcome of this course is to develop a strong basic comparative understanding of various processes and get started with designing as per certain processes to build DFM skills for mechanical design & product development.

Course will be best suitable for  Mechanical design engineers who want to level up their DFM knowledge and skills .
