Design for manufacturing or DFM is a very important practical activity in Mechanical design engineering.
Converting concept into designs which can be manufactured and ready for implementation is a key skill in product development.
This course attempts to cover the basics of designing for manufacturing including selecting a suitable process based on various criteria and designing for the process to reduce cost and improve ease of manufacturing .
Topics covered are
Importance of Process selection
Parameters and Criteria for selection
Comparison of processes
Process- Shape matrix
Section wall thickness and Tolerance ranges
Part complexity and part cost
Prototyping vs production
Case studies in process selection
Designing for Forging - principles and guidelines
Designing for Casting - principles and guidelines
Design for Injection Molding - Principles and guidelines.
