Design for Quality, Manufacturing and Assembly
Design for Quality, Manufacturing, and Assembly
In the context of product design, it’s critical to recognize a design’s limitations in terms of production and assembly, as well as to generate high-quality products at a cheap cost.
This course will cover strategies for guiding design teams in reducing product structure to decrease manufacturing and assembly costs, quantifying benefits, and demonstrating how robust design concepts may help. quantifying improvements and demonstrating how solid design concepts may be utilized to ensure quality.
This course will teach you how to account for variability, express it mathematically, formulate it, and control it. Quality, robustness, six sigma, and orthogonal array are some of the concepts that will be explored.
Week 1: Introduction, course objectives, and quality debate
Week 2: Quality Loss Function and Measuring Quality Robustness and six-sigma notions are discussed.
Week 3: Measuring robustness: Signal to Noise Ratio and SNR-based issue formulation Discussions on experiment design
Week 4: Optimal combinations, orthogonal arrays, linear graphs, triangular tables Case studies are used to illustrate a point.
Week 05: Design for Manufacturing: over-the-top design, the most influential phase of design, injection molding and sheet metal working best practices
Week 6: Additive manufacturing design, single point, and multipoint tools
Week 07: Xerox producibility index (XPI) approach, Boothroyd Dewhurst method, the theoretical minimum number of parts
Week 08: Manual assembly dos and don’ts, assembly time calculation, and design for robotic assembly considerations Design for long-term use
