CAD systems are used for the graphic design, it generates three dimensional graphic designs, and the knowledge worker can check the design from different angles. The analysis of design via this way is much faster and more accurate than the traditional ways. It is accelerating designing phase by which it not only save time but also save cost and production phase can start sooner than expectations.
Software’s such as CFD and FEA used on solidworks combined with material testing in the university labs and garden tests helped us in achieving our final design solution which was to produce a small scale 3d prototype. The methodology, material selection and CAD design will be explained significantly within this report.
Manufacturer’s today face more and more challenges than before because of highly volatile market changes, which creates large fluctuations in demand of product.To be competitive, companies must need design manufacturing systems that produce high quality products at low cost with responding to market changes in an economical way.FMSs are expensive, utilize inadequate system software, since developing user specified software is extremely expensive, not highly reliable and subject to obsolescence because of advances in technology and their fixed system software/ hardware. Due advances in computers, processing, optics, controls, information , high speed motors , linear drives and materials some time occurs in cycles as six months , today’s most efficient production system become inefficient after short
On another note, manufacturing engineers and quality engineers play a key role in the development of new vehicles. Manufacturing engineers work with the design engineers to ensure the vehicle they have designed can be produced in a high volume environment. According to Automotive Engineering HQ, an international headquarters for automotive engineering teams, “[Manufacturing engineers] will review how all the parts are assembled to ensure that they can develop a process that will be able to assemble and install everything from the circuit boards in the radio all the way to the bumper of the vehicle”. Creating the most efficient method of assembly is the chief responsibility of the manufacturing team; additionally, working alongside the manufacturing engineers, test engineers implement check points in the assembly process to guarantee correct assembly and functionality. Comparatively, “Quality engineers are responsible for overseeing all aspects of the design, development and production processes to make sure that the end product will be as robust and meet the highest quality standards possible” (Automotive). Particularly in the automotive industry, the role of quality engineer is vital given that errors or flaws in the product can cause costly recalls or even death; in addition, quality engineers are involved on all levels from supplier
3. To regulate the process of accommodation of new and reconstruction of operating industrial objects under the conditions of rigid environmental restrictions. (uvm.edu)
The current software, AutoCAD was currently being used with a combination of MasterCam. AutoCAD would support the design work while MasterCam would be used to program the CNC router. The new program, SolidWorks would be used to convert all of the flat models
In the area of defect, the mirror image model can be exported to a computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system for preoperative processes (wrapping, fitting errors, and shape) .
All engineering companies are different in the procedure they use when designing a new product. However, some basic steps should always apply to ensure a successful outcome.
It can also involve making sketches of a product, recording data, computing that data to ensure it matches with specifications, analyzing results and writing reports. Designing products is additional part of the specific engineering discipline. This however is likely to a small component compared to the testing and eliminating of production problems aspect.
I have had a special interest in mechanical engineering since my childhood, as I grew up watching my father develop complicated equipment for power plants. Hence, I opted for a mechanical engineering course for my UG program. The concept of computational science and engineering which uses numerical approaches to characterize, predict and simulate physical events and engineering systems using the laws of mechanics fascinated me. To understand their advanced methodologies, I have pursued a Master’s degree in CAD/CAM from VIT .
Robustness testing is a simple extension of boundary value analysis. Most of the discussion of boundary value analysis applies directly to robustness testing. This is especially true
Implementing the restructuring plan, network scheduling method, change in communications and quality control measures will improve the product process at FHE. These changes will also improve costs, employee moral and increase speed and delivery of new products. FHE will continue to see increases profits and maintain their competitiveness in the market. Introduction of the new CAD-CAM system proposed at FHE will increase the efficiency of the
