Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of the module, students should be able to:
  • Assess uncertainty in system design;
  • Quantify tolerance stack up, taking into account human attributes and factors; use a range of CAE tools;
  • Apply engineering design principles to produce an effective interface.


Description of Content

This module explores a range of advanced engineering design approaches to enable the quantification of parameters in the design process. Use of computer aided engineering tools. Assessment of uncertainty in parameters including advanced assessment of tolerance stack up on parameters. Modelling of ergonomic function. Six sigma engineering design. People flows. Interface design modelling and assessment. Extreme user modelling. System design principles and modelling.
