MG1025 Product Realization - Manufacturing 6.0 credits

This course addresses the product development process by integrating the skills previously acquired on machine components and production technology, put them in a product development context, and methodically apply them in a product development project.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

A detailed form, precision manufacturing, and mechanical properties are determined largely by the selected manufacturing process. In the course you will study the most common cutting, shaping and manufacturing processes used in the engineering industry. Examples include turning, milling, drilling, casting, and plastic forming.

Other areas covered in the course are basic engineering technical measurement techniques to verify the functionality and quality.

Teaching is integrated in the form of lectures, tutorials and laboratory. To help you get to practice the skills you acquire in your course includes hands-on laboratory work in mechanical engineering.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this course you will be able to:

Describing the activities of a product development process and how they depend on each other
carry out have a technical product development projects in the group, from being formulated product requirements that have defined manufacturing
switch between levels of abstraction, as a function, solution in principle and detailed solution for product development
explain the frequent cutting and forming processes used in the engineering industry, and apply these processes to produce simple components
select the manufacturing process from a series of component size, shape, and mechanical properties precicion
prepare simple metallic components for the manufacture of manual / numerically controlled machine tools (lathe, mill), incl. choice of tools
using basic engineering technical measurements, to verify the function and quality
describe product development process (raw material - construction - manufacturing - product)
perform a simple dimensioned manufacturing drawings
The course information is a detailed description (give specific learning objectives for each lesson) of what a course participant should be able to after the course

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • PRO1 - Project Work, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

ÖVN A: Laboratory and exercises and homework assignments, 3hp

PRO 1: Technical report with manufacturing documentation, 3hp

Other requirements for final grade

  • Laboratory work including preparation
  • Homework assignments
  • Project tasks

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

No information inserted

Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
