Innovation, better management, throughput improvements, and expansion of new technologies have led Product Design and Manufacturing as a compelling field for the students. Managing the product development process, right from idea generation to final product manufacturing has to be systematic and effective to meet the customer needs, while incorporating the time-to-market constraint as well. This course presents an overview of the product design and development process, along with the manufacturing systems aspects. The concepts Design for Manufacturing, Assembly, and Environment, and analytical tools for development, costing and manufacturing would help the students and practitioners learn to conceptualize, design, and manufacture competitively-priced quality products. Reverse Engineering, Prototyping and Simulation using soft tools are also incorporated make the students learn the advanced methods in manufacturing.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : Students of all Engineering and Science disciplines.PREREQUISITES : The student should have completed two semesters of UG Engineering or Science program.INDUSTRY SUPPORT : HAL, NAL, SAIL, ISRO
