The purpose of this project is to analyse a product (an existing commercial product) for its design for manufacturability. Analyse the design considerations/limitations or defects in the product due to the manufacturing method.
Selection of products:
The product chosen for this project should be different from any example already covered in the class.
1.Classify commonly used manufacturing processes and briefly explain any eight manufacturing process.
2.Provide a diagram of the product, with dimensions. You must annotate the diagram by specifying design consideration/guidelines considered for manufacturing.
3.What alternative manufacturing method you suggest to manufacture the same product? Nominate the percentage improvements or limitations when compared to the original.
4.Submit a printed copy in the class with coversheet and upload a copy in blackboard.
5.If possible, submit the product with printed assignment.
