Senior design courses. Complete design sequence with a required capstone project spanning two semesters. While the focus is on the capstone disciplinary design experience, it includes the two-credit core module on Engineering Economic Design (E 421) during the first semester.

Analysis of both bulk-forming (forging, extrusion, rolling, etc.) and sheet-forming processes, metal cutting, and other related manufacturing processes; physics and stochastic nature of manufacturing processes and their effects on quality, rate, cost and flexibility; role of computer-aided manufacturing in manufacturing system automation; methodologies used to plan and control a manufacturing system, forecasting, production scheduling, facility layout, inventory control, and project planning.

Application of the principles of strength of materials to the analysis and design of machine parts. Stress and deflection analysis. Curved bars, multi-support shafts, torsion, cylinders under pressure, thermal stresses, creep, and relaxation, rotating disks, fasteners, springs, bearings, gears, brakes and other machine elements are considered. Failure of structural materials under cyclic stress. Close

Modeling and simulation methodologies including model-block building, logical and data modeling, validation, simulation and trade-off analysis, decision-making, and optimization. Product and assembly modeling; visual simulation; process modeling; production modeling; process plans and resource modeling, entity flow modeling including conveyors, transporters, and guided vehicles; Input and output statistical analysis. Several CAD/CAE simulation software are used. Close
