Fundamentals of computer aided manufacturing

ME-416

Lecturer(s) :

Kyritsis Dimitrios

Language:

English

Summary

The goal of this course is to expose the student to basic computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) modeling concepts, basic mathematical simulation, verification and optimization algorithms and methodologies and their applications. The students will practice their knowledge with modern CAM software.

Content

Introduction to CAM (computer aided manufacturing)

Machine tools (composition, performance and morphology)

Machining (cutting, tools, strategies, parameters, toolpaths, process plans)

CN Programming / Post-Processing

Process Planning

Process Planning Modeling and Optimization

The Pétri Net Process Planning Modeling Method

Toolpath generation (3 axis)

Machining cost estimation

CAM Projects (machining simulation and comparison with real machining)

Keywords

Computer-aided manufacturing, toolpath generation, process planning

 

Learning Prerequisites

Important concepts to start the course

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

The course includes ex-cathedra lessons for the presentation of the theoretical notions of the course followed up by theoretical exercises and modeling exercises on the computer.

Expected student activities

The students will have to work on the assigned modeling exercises on the computer in addition to the studying of the course material described in the documentation and presented in the classroom.

The students are organized in groups of two students when performing their modeling exercises.

The modeling exercises require an average of 5 hours of workload per week

Assessment methods

The students are graded in part by their reports on the modeling exercises and in part by a written exam at the end of the year. The written exam is based on the entire material covered in the course and consists of theoretical questions and small exercises.

Supervision

Office hours Yes
Assistants Yes
Forum Yes
Others

The students are supervised during their computer-aided exercise hours by a team of assistants including the responsible teacher.

The students can ask for more supervising assistance according to their needs
