Course aim

To develop students' knowledge and ability to design for the materials and processes used for low volume manufacturing with a focus on computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing techniques and technologies.

Course content

The students will develop knowledge on a range of contemporary materials and processes and how these are applied in the design of products for short run manufacturing. The implications of mass customization, microfactories and the economics low volume manufacturing will be investigated. This will include knowledge of the economic, ecological, and health issues related to manufacturing technologies. The students will develop their design skills to produce simple products that demonstrate an integration of  materials and processes constraints as part of design development process including economic and ecological criteria. In addition students will conduct research into the properties and form possibilities of a variety of low volume manufacturing technologies and materials.
