Course Objective The methods used in product design is changing rapidly in parallel with the developing technology . Concepts such as concurrent engineering, reverse engineering have been raised and product development methods such as rapid prototyping have been developed in this context. These modern methods and techniques began to be widely used within a very short period of time for designing and developing the engineering products. Therefore, this course aims to provide knowledge related to product development techniques to the students.
Course Content Mechatronic system design, product development and innovation, product development methods and stages, freehand drafting, engineering tools, concurrent engineering, reverse engineering, virtual design and simulation, rapid prototyping, and production methods in mechatronics, product development practices (group work)
