ENGRG 7520 Design for Manufacturability
|Course Number:||ENGRG 7520|
|Course Name:||Design for Manufacturability|
|Course Description:||A major portion of the costs and in turn the profitability of manufacturing organizations are affected by the quality of the design of their products. Building quality into the design will call upon engineers to systematically design a product and/or process so that it can be produced with lowest costs, rapid response time, and meet customers¿ expectations. This will require the integration of design, manufacturing, management, and economic principles. The course will address this overall integration and focus on the design for manufacturing aspects so as to provide faster time to market, productive utilization of equipment, faster delivery, improved quality, reduced cost, and effective continuous improvement. Students will be able to systematically design a product and/or process so that it can be produced with lowest costs, rapid response time, and meet customers¿ expectations. In doing so, they will be able to identify opportunity for design, address technical considerations of design & manufacturing, and make a business decision on feasibility of design.|
- Identify opportunities for design.
