Mechanical Industrialization


Program (detailed contents):

The sequence is composed of lectures (L), tutorial classes (TC) and a serie of practical works (PW) using different production machines. This sequence permits to build a small mechanism to illustrate the methods of production, control and assembly. The disciplines covered are prototyping, sheet metal process, molding, machining, numerical simulation, inspection, assembly.

At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):

- the main types of production processes for mechanical parts,

- principles of industrialization that permit starting a 3D digital model to obtain a real mechanical part (digital process chain),

- the general approach to implement a production process.



The student will be able to:

- make the link between the Product, the Process and the Material associating the form of a part made of a given material to one or more manufacturing processes,

- describe the physical principles of a manufacturing process to produce a mechanical part.

- identify the influencing parameters of a production process


The skills assessed in this course are:

1_5 mastering basic industrial techniques (industrial design, manufacturing ...)

3_3 be able to use generic digital tools (ENT, programming, collaborative work ...)

3_4 Define, build and operate an experiment in a critical view

6_3 Knowing how to use the methods of creativity and demonstrate independence.


The skills deployed in this course are:

2_5 Managing a production tool.

Needed prerequisite

1) Interpretation a digital model of a mechanical part (3D model).

2) Reading the specifications of a mechanical part.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
