AbstractThe course introduces the fundamentals of the development and design of technical systems. For the most important machine elements, operating principles, functions, areas of application and calculation principles are taught. Based on this, the basics of the development, design and manufacture of products are discussed using case studies from practice.
ObjectiveStudents are able to describe the machine elements discussed in terms of their operating principle, function and area of application and can dimension the machine elements for given applications.
Students can select suitable machine elements for a technical system to be developed and design the system in the draft.
Students understand the relationship between manufacturing processes and part design and are able to conceptually design parts considering the selected manufacturing process.
Students understand the basics of product development processes and know the development methods addressed. They know how to structure a development project with development phases and agile methods from the idea to requirements to the first tested prototype.
