Unit Code: MCD641

Unit Name: Manufacturing Processes

Description: Engineering technologists are expected to distinguish a broad spectrum of manufacturing techniques available in the manufacturing industry. In this course, you will understand the working principles of the machinery and processes used in manufacturing metal and plastic products and examine the different joining process methods. You will also learn and practice the techniques and application of work measurement, calculating for optimal tool life, job costing, broaching processes, and analytical approaches used in forming and cutting procedures.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Demonstrate an understanding of the principles of primary processes in manufacturing and selects appropriate procedures for given applications 2. Investigate the measuring instruments available for accurate measurement of size, surface finish, angles 3. Justify the use of a system of limits and fits and demonstrates through a report the principles of design of limit gauges 4. Practice Method Study and Work Measurement 5. Analyse economic tool life and evaluate production rates by using calculations. 6. Use Job Costing to appraise machines or processes and find the break-even quantities. 7. Investigate and produce a report for each of the following processes: broaching, forming and cutting; plastic forming by compression, injection and transfer moulding 8. Produce data to evaluate the various non-destructive testing methods of materials.
