This course follows on from Physical Principles for Designers. It places an emphasis upon the relationship between Industrial Design practice and manufacturing processes. This course enables designer to design and specify a specific materials and manufacturing processes. Students will learn to communicate intelligently and effectively with other manufacturing specialists. The course will develop your knowledge of engineering materials and manufacturing processes tailored for the Industrial Designer. The focus will be upon metals, alloys, fastening systems and assembly processes. Other materials and manufacturing processes will also be covered in less detail, they include: composite materials and ceramics. Specific topics covered within this course include, design and selection of materials and manufacturing processes, design constraints, design for assembly and disassembly, specification and tolerancing, and advanced manufacturing technologies.
