Teaching New Product Development through a Product Engineering Approach
This paper describes experiences gained in teaching a new course aimed at providing junior-level undergraduate engineering students with some of the fundamentals needed in developing new products. A six-stage engineering ...
Integrated Product and Process Design Environment Tool for Manufacturing T/R Modules
We present a decision making assistant tool for integrated product and process design environment for manufacturing applications. Specifically, we target microwave modules which use Electro-mechanical components and require ...
Economic Evaluation of Rapid Prototyping Technology for the Development of New Products
This paper presents results obtained from a study of cost structure and cost estimation for applying the rapid prototyping technology in the process of developing new products. The laser- based rapid prototyping technology ...
Locators and Sensors for Automated Coordinate Checking Fixtures
This article proposes a systematic method for the optimal design of sensor locations for an automated Coordinate Checking Fixture (CCF). The fixture can be employed for making at-machine assessments of the dimensional ...
Stiffness Modeling of a Stewart Platform Based Milling Machine"
This paper presents the development of a mathematical model describing the stiffness of a Stewart-platform-based milling machine. Matrix structural analysis is used to derive the stiffness matrix for each of the elements ...
Dynamic Variation of the Workspace of an Octahedral Hexapod Machine Tool During Machining
A method is presented to evaluate the workspace variation of a Stewart platform based machine tool. Four sets of constraints, covering strut lengths, platform spherical joint angles, base spherical joint angles, and strut ...
