Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • Basic concepts in assembly technology
  • Manual assembly
  • Automated assembly
  • Product design for assembly (Design for assembly – DFA): Manual and automated
  • Components of the assembly system
  • Assembly in textile and wood working industry

Intended learning outcomes *

After the course, the students should be able to:

  • describe the role of the assembly process within the manufacturing domain and discuss its importance
  • create mathematical and feature models of assemblies and use them in context of design and evaluation of assembly systems
  • account for the dynamic and static constraints of a manual or automatic assembly process
  • analyse a given product and define feasible assembly sequences
  • choose the best sequence by applying technical and economical criteria
  • describe the function of all the elements of an assembly system (both automatic and manual)
  • evaluate the impact of the product design on the assembly process, by applying the Boothroyd DFA methodologies
  • identify the requirements on design of an assembly station and provide instructions for the subsequent implementation
  • calculate the costs and the most important economical key performance indicators (KPIs) for standard assembly systems (both manual and automatic)
