Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Design for Manufacture traditionally applies to the initial design of a new product where a methodology is followed to ensure that the product is: easy to manufacture at an economic cost, built to required quality; and able to achieve the required reliability. In modern manufacturing environments, automation is an integral part of the production process. This subject considers adapting design for production and designing and implementing effective automated production lines to produce products to a specified quality and cost.
