Learning Objectives


The course aims to provide knowledge on the integrated development product philosophy (Integrated Product Development - IPD) that involves all major business functions. Will study approaches and methodologies aimed at improving the "process of development of new products or existing products mofiche" type adaptive design, design variation and original design.

The problems of the course ranging in all environments of the type designmechanic. They must be acquired the requirements for Design (DFM designfor Manufacturing) and installation (Design for Assembly, DFA or DXA) that It integrates the assembly optimization addresses the design requirements, and Ashby method for the selection of the materials in the design process.

Methodology Course structure predeve lectures, computer exercises on case studies using the CES the materials selection software, and the drafting of three projects that encompass the topics covered in the course.

Course Structure

The teaching is conditioned by a certain number of hours in which the theoretical topics of the course will be presented to the pupils, which are used to carry out the required projects.
In order to complete the design training path, the purpose of this teaching will be presented to the students of the applied examples. At the end of the first part of the program students will have to support a test in order to certify the degree of preparation achieved.

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.

Learning assessment may also be carried out on line, should the conditions require it.
