Keywords

Product Lifecycle, Life Cycle Assessment, Life Cycle Costing, Circular economy

Learning Prerequisites

Important concepts to start the course

  • Principles of mechanical design
  • Principles of materials

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Choose suitable methods and tools for (a) the development of, (b) the modelling and simulation of, (c) the analysis of and (d) the choice of solution for an engineering problem in the mechanical engineering domain (product design, manufacturing process and system production), CP1
  • Choose production tools and methods based on performance and cost requirements and needs, taking into consideration applicability limits and associated hypotheses, CP8
  • Carry out a multi - criterion (technological, economic and environmental) analysis of the solutions.
  • Choose suitable methods and tools for (a) the development of, (b) the modelling and simulation of, (c) the analysis of and (d) the choice of solution for an engineering problem in the mechanical engineering domain (product design, manufacturing process and system production) CP1
  • Choose production tools and methods based on performance and cost requirements and needs, taking into consideration applicability limits and associated hypotheses CP8
  • Apply adapt and synthesize learned engineering skills to create novel solutions CP14

Transversal skills

  • Communicate effectively, being understood, including across different languages and cultures.
  • Make an oral presentation.
  • Evaluate one's own performance in the team, receive and respond appropriately to feedback.
  • Write a scientific or technical report.
  • Plan and carry out activities in a way which makes optimal use of available time and other resources.
  • Use a work methodology appropriate to the task.
  • Negotiate effectively within the group.
  • Give feedback (critique) in an appropriate fashion.
  • Demonstrate a capacity for creativity.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools
  • Collect data.

Teaching methods

The course is organized in theoretical sessions, presentations of selected topics by students and a project (Environmental Life Cycle Assessment) to be realized by the students in groups using appropriate software.

Expected student activities

  • Participation in the course
  • Study documents and do presentations
  • Prepare and ask questions
  • Do a project using a software tool
  • Write a project report

Assessment methods

  • report on the project (80%)
  • presentations in the class (20%)
