Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be familiar with common rules for designing components, assemblies and machines.
They will be able to construct a machine for a given task in a methodically planned procedure and assemble it in a functional manner.
SoK Students will be able to cooperate and communicate with other students in a team, and both present and defend their ideas. They will be able to discuss and evaluate the ideas of others objectively.

Module content:
A methodical approach to design _ From main functional components to standard parts
Force flow-oriented and material-economical design
Assembly-ready design
Component design for additive, generative manufacturing processes
"X-Würfel" project: Machine design and construction in a team according to a defined task The task will be announced in an annual guideline with specification sheet.
The components designed within the framework of the project must also be suitable for production (see the "Fertigungsgerechte Bauteilgestaltung" module).
