This subject introduces the elements of a number of basic manufacturing processes and associated materials behaviour required in the design of mechanical devices. The configuration of machine tools is discussed in the context of orthogonal cutting and the basics of materials deformation processes including casting,forging, sheet-metal forming and polymer processing. Graphical representation techniques include sectioning, conventional representations, dimensioning, tolerancing further develops computer-aided design skills (CAD). Also included are 24 hours of practical workshop experience with assorted hand and machine tools to produce a manufactured article.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:On successful completion of this course, students should have the skills and knowledge to:
- Justify the most appropriate manufacturing process and material for a given product, considering various requirements including cost, physical properties and process capabilities.
- Complete a design project considering the design for manufacture principles.
- Perform a range of different manufacturing processes.
- Clearly present designs for manufacture in the form of an Engineering Report.
- Critically analyse new advanced manufacturing processes and their implications for design and manufacture.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
