Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To show how engineering sub-assemblies comprise both standard and bespoke designed components.
To demonstrate the importance of optimisation within an iterative design process in contrast to adequate design in terms of functionality, geometry and material selection.
To show how a successful design can be achieved by integrating analytical skills from the engineering sciences.
To introduce design methods and design for X approaches.
To introduce students to collaborative working in a design environment.
To further develop students CAD modelling abilities.
To incorporate practical aspects of the Year 1 design and make activity.

Learning Outcomes:
After taking this unit the student should be able to:
* Design a sub-assembly in detail using correctly selected components and design ancillary items to meet a requirement.
* Design an engineering product.
* Generate a requirement specification from a customers requirements
* Recognise the importance of completing comprehensive design analysis, component drawings and sub-assembly drawings in order to achieve a successful solution.
* Understand engineering product characteristics
* Present a working prototype of their own manufacture.

Skills:
Problem solving; numeracy; IT; working as part of a group; leadership.

Content:
Embodiment design: To include shafts, coupling, keyway, welded and bolted joint design, bearing, pulley, gear analysis. combined loadings, design factors and optimisation techniques.
