Aims 

After having passed this course, the student will be able to:
- apply systematic and analytical means for carrying out the DFMA-analysis of different
types of components and assemblies and suggest improvements either to product design,
material selection, manufacturing stages or production
- utilize analytical tools to evaluate products’ manufacturability and assembly aspects in
industrial production and integrate these aspects with the results of functionality analysis of
different product variants
- take care of material related DFMA-viewpoints in the context of sustainability
- build an analytical overall model for integrating aspects of product design, sustainable
production and environmental friendly material selection
- utilize commercial manufacturability data from industrial workshops in DFMA-analysis
- compare objectively different subcontractors for industrial production

 
Contents 

Different systematic and analytical means for carrying out the DFMA-analysis of different
types of components and assemblies. Analytical tools to evaluate products’ manufacturability
and assembly aspects in industrial production and means to integrate these aspects with the
results of functionality analysis of different product variants. Practical ways to recognize
material related DFMA-viewpoints in the context of sustainability. Tools to build an
analytical overall model for integrating aspects of product design, sustainable production and
environmental friendly material selection. Means to utilize commercial manufacturability
data from industrial workshops in DFMA-analysis and compare objectively different
subcontractors for industrial production. During the project work industrial products will be reassembled and analyzed by utilizing presented DFMA-tools.
