Subject fundamentals
The lecture is aimed at describing and understanding the main manufacturing processes applied in the enterprises. The processes are describe as a coordinated system of manufacturing steps oriented to the making of an industrial product. The focus of the lecture is on the optimization of the performances and to the management of the resources, taking into account quality and security issues.
Expected learning outcomes
In the context of the lecture, the student will learn the description of productive processes, their representation through formal models and their dimensioning.
By applying the acquired knowledge, the student will be able to identify the principal enterprise functions, to choose among alternatives on the basis of the functional design requirements and to estimate the necessary productive resources.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Basic knowledge of Mathematics, Algebra, Trigonometry and Statistics, as well as, Physics, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry, Mechanics and Ectromagnetism.
During the lectures some different industrial case studies referring to production processes and systems will be presented and discussed. Starting from these examples the principles and methodological models of modern industrial production, as well as the relating supporting functions, will be introduced and described.
Taxonomy of manufacturing processes.
Competition factors in production.
Tools for production systems analysis.
Models and methods for process control and management:
- Quality Assurance.
- Total Productive Maintenance.
- Risk Analysis.
Process representation.
Description and dimensioning of main production processes:
- Ferrous metal production and metal casting.
- Metal forming (rolling, extrusion, drawing and sheet metalworking).
- Cutting operations (turning, drilling and related operations, milling, slotting, broaching, grinding, and superfinishing).
- Computer numerical control.
- Production processes and system for plastic materials, ceramics and composites.
- Introduction to assembly processes.
Delivery modes
Class exercises and case study discussion.
Presentation of industrial cases by experts from industry.
Visit of laboratories and workshops.
