Prerequisites: The prerequisites are included in the entry requirements for the Master's degree in Ingegneria Gestionale.
Target skills and knowledge: The course has the following expected knowledge and skills:
• Know the basic and advanced methodologies for the industrialization of the product, with particular reference to the methods, techniques and concurrent engineering tools of product and process, which allow companies to create innovative and quality products, in shorter times and at competitive cost.
• Know computer based methodologies applied to manufacturing production.
• Be able to use product modeling tools (CAD).
• Be able to analyze and estimate the cost of assembly and manufacturing processes (DFA and DFM).
• Be able to perform virtual prototyping (CAE) of the injection molding and machining process (CAM).
Examination methods: The evaluation of the expected knowledge and skills is carried out with a written and an oral exam. The final grade will result from the arithmetic average of the evaluations.
The written test includes 6 open questions on the program while the oral exam consists in presenting and discussing two projects that students have carried out in groups (made of 3 people) during the course. The first project is focused on a Design for Assembly of a product chosen by each group. The second project is about CAD modeling and DFM, CAE and CAM analysis of a plastic part made by injection molding.
Assessment criteria: The final grade is calculated as the arithmetic average of the written test (50%) and the oral one (50%).
The evaluation criteria with which the knowledge and skills acquired are verified are:
1. Completeness of the acquired knowledge
2. Correctness of the technical terminology used
3. Ability to conduct a DFA analysis for a manufacturing product
4. Ability to model with a 3D CAD a component to be manufactured by injection molding
5. Ability to conduct a DFM analysis and a numerical simulation of the injection molding process
6. Ability to program and simulate milling machining using CAM
Course unit contents: Life cycle of a manufacturing product. Criticality in the industrialization and production of innovative and successful products. Integrated and simultaneous development of product, process and production system (Concurrent Engineering).
Design for assembly and manufacture. Design for manual assembly (Design for Assembly). Design for manufacturing (Design for Manufacture) by injection molding.
Assisted design systems (CAD). Transfer of product data between computer-aided design, engineering and production systems.
Virtual prototyping of production processes (CAE). Computer simulation applied to the study of the injection molding process. Analysis and prevention of geometric distortions and defects in products.
Computer assisted production (CAM). Numerical control of machine tools (NC). Techniques and systems for additive manufacturing (AM). Integrated systems for geometric-dimensional control.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The activities include classroom hours where, using computer support (PowerPoint file and OneNote), the contents of the course are dealt with. The frontal activity is interspersed with exercises in the computer lab where the students, divided into groups of three people, use the software for the design (Fusion 360) and the industrialization (Moldflow Adviser) and the prototyping (Netfabb) of a plastic part made by injection molding.
Additional notes about suggested reading: All the teaching material presented during the lectures, manuals and software tutorials (Fusion 360 and Moldflow Adviser) is made available on the Moodle platform.
