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.
