Virtual Product Development A

The lecture "Virtual Product Development A – CAD Systems and CAx Process Chains" covers a basic introduction to modern product data technology to support virtual product development processes. Based on this, various CAx process chains (DMU, FEM, MKS, CAM, AM,…) are dealt with and their use in the phases of the product life cycle is explained.

Lectures during the winter semester 2020/21

The courses of the DiK will be held as online teaching in the winter semester 2020/21. The lectures will be digitally broadcasted and supplemented by additional digital materials such as demonstrations and exercises.

Online teaching starts in week 45 (from 02.11.2020) and takes place on the weekdays and at the times specified in the schedule (see TUCaN). The available room details for the individual dates in TUCaN represent the original attendance planning and will be replaced by the online teaching. The technical access to the online teaching takes place via Moodle.

The DiK broadcasts the lectures in the winter semester 2020/21 via livestream. You will find a link to attend the live lecture in the respective Moodle course of the event in the corresponding week. The link leads you to the video platform Youtube, which is used for the live stream.

The content of the lecture „Virtuelle Produktentwicklung A“ (Virtual Product Development A) includes a basic introduction in the modern product data technology for support of virtual product development processes. Thereby an orientation on process chains occurs passing through product creation. The product model concept as well as different methods of computer aided product description are dealt with as a background. In addition different CAx process chains of technical and commercial data processing (CAD, DMU, FEM, MKS, CAM, VR/AR, RPT, TPD and PPS) are explained in detail and their application in the different phases of the product life cycle.

Learning targets:

  • Understanding the relation between integrated product models, CAD-systems and CAx process chains
  • Understanding the cooperation of DV-systems inside process chains for product development
  • Knowledge of different models of computer integrated description of product information
  • Knowledge of composing DV-systems for product data processing
  • Knowledge of computer aided methods for conception, design, optimisation, display, production preparations and documentation of products
  • Representation and documentation of products

The lecture is for students of the following study programmes:

  • Master-Studiengang Mechanical and Process Engineering
  • Bachelor-Studiengang Computational Mechanical and Process Engineering
  • Diplom-/Master-Studiengang Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen Fachrichtung Maschinenbau (Wi-MB)

Number of ECTS-Credit Points: 4 CPs for MPE (M.Sc.)
