Prel. scheduled hours: 330
Rec. self-study hours: -10

  Area of Education: Technology

Main field of studies: Mechanical Engineering

  Advancement level (G1, G2, A): A

This course is aimed at applying skills from previous courses in manufacturing engineering in a manufacturing development project. After the course the student should
  • be able to apply concept generation and concept selection in a realistic manufacturing project.
  • be able apply modelling of manufacturing
  • be able to do a project plan for a manufacturing project
  • have experience from working in a team with manufacturing development project

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
The project requires knowledge from the first three years in a Mechanical Engineering program.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

The course is carried as a project with regular meetings. In addition there are lectures in project specific technology.
The course runs over the entire autumn semester.

Course contents:
The course is based on projects that could be from industry or a relevant in-house project. The project contains concept generation and concept selection, modelling of manufacturing system and/or equipment in the different phases, project planning. To a varying degree, students will work with modelling, simulation and other analysis techniques. The course also contains some lectures on project specific technology.

Course literature:
Depends on the specific projects

Project work
A written report or scientific article and an oral presentation

Course language is Swedish/English.
