Teacher in charge
Jorge Joaquim Pamies Teixeira
This course is designed to provide an engineering processes overview in the product development, from the functional requirements to their manufacturing processes and their inspection.
- To identify the functional requirements expressed in the product drawings.
- Basic concepts about manufacturing technologies.
- Basic concepts about metrological inspection, and about equipment used in the industry;
- Basic concepts to understand the influence of economical and commercial information in the manufacturing systems.
- To interpret surface finish and dimensional and geometric tolerances in the technical drwings.
- To select manufacturing technologies to a given product.
- To select equipment to the quality control.
- To select manufacturing systems.
Teamwork, technology and global development.
