1. Fundamentals of Engineering Design: Industrial Engineering Component
Contact Name: Stephen Tricamo Organization:New Jersey Institute of Technology

The FED course is intended to show students at an early stage of their studies what engineers do and what the practice of engineering is about. The course is divided into two parts - a project component and an application component, which teaches students the use of engineering software tools. In the project component, students are guided through an engineering design and manufacturing process that is comparable to that which an engineer in industry might be called upon to complete. This is the manual for the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering module for this course. In this project, the class is divided into groups of four students each, and each group is required to choose a specific product to design or improve. The groups generate a list of technical specifications for their product, develop a project plan, and generate and choose among alternative designs based on cost and manufacturability constraints.
