Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)
On completion of the course, the student should
Knowledge and understanding
- Demonstrate comprehension of manual and automated design processes
- Be familiar with techniques for automation of design processes
- Being familiar with the mapping of design processes and design knowledge
- Being familiar with useful tools to structure design tasks and design knowledge
- Know useful tools to structure design tasks and design knowledge
Skills and abilities
- Demonstrating ability to develop automated systems for configuration and parametric design
- Demonstrating ability to classify design tasks and design knowledge
- Demonstrating ability to structure design tasks and design knowledge
- Demonstrating ability to acquire knowledge about design processes
Judgement and approach
- Demonstrating ability to analyze a real design process to plan computer support and automation
Engineers manage big amounts of digital information about the products they develop. Such information is stored in a variety of formats (e.g. Excel, MathCAD, Access, CATIA, and Solidworks). It is possible to automate some of the efforts engineers put on managing and processing that information, which has proven to shorten development lead-time and enhancing productivity. This course gives you basic knowledge and abilities to automate engineering design task through computer programming.
The course includes the following topics:
- Need for different types of computer support – analysis/synthesis.
- Classification of design tasks and design knowledge
- Mapping of design processes and design knowledge
- Representation of knowledge and reasoning (Dependency Structure Matrix, Ontologies, Constraint-programming, Knowledge based engineering, Case Based Reasoning (Matching of design problems and solution strategy (Configuration, Parametric design, Generative systems)
- Practical experience from industrial systems for automated
- A systematic procedure to develop systems for automated design
