Production-Optimized Component Design

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Production-Optimized Component Design
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Mechanical and Process Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019
Module code: MAB_19_M_4.07.FBG
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+1PA (3 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 4
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Project with a paper in conjunction with the "Konstruktion mit Projekt" module

MAB_19_M_4.07.FBG (P241-0246) Mechanical and Process Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 4, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
45 class hours (= 33.75 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 56.25 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be familiar with the influences of production processes on the design of components using the example of machining production processes.
They will be able to design components with their functionally relevant functional surfaces for machining.
They will be able to transfer their knowledge to other production processes and independently familiarize themselves with technology-specific characteristics.
