Digital factory for individualized mass products
The goal of the Specialist course
Production of an individualized product based on a mass-produced article. Customer access to the product specification. The production control, customized based on a cloud application.
At the end of the successfully completed modules (I-V), the students should have understood and implemented the digitized processes in the production of an individualized mass-produced product. Here, the example "Labeling of a ruler (see figures)" or "Shape design of a spinner" as a project task can be exemplified.
Scenario to introduce into the learning situation for digital Production Process and recognize the connections.
Concrete tasks /Project tasks (ways of collaboration)
Recognize the relationships of the process chain in a digital production and translate this into a concrete individualized mass product.
The individual performance of the students are checked on the basis of the concrete results (3D model / data structures / technical documents).
The reflection and evaluation takes place with the help of a cloud-based evaluation software (for example: FORMS)
Content / Material
We give the teams the task of creating a customer-oriented mass product. Hereby the connections of the digital process chain are worked out with the students.
Exercises in the various learning modules, project tasks.
The individual results of the students in the form of technical data and documents and a 3D model.
Reviewing and evaluating the student´s individual outcomes in terms of functionality and implementation.
The students give feedback on the individual learning modules. Here, the course history, the media used and the relationship to professional practice are evaluated.
How to use it
By means of modularized lessons, with individual exercises, students are introduced to the use / application of the different software tools (CAD, CNC, RP, data management, documentation).
Create a concrete timeline with tasks and dates together with the students.
Use of various software tools
The students create the results and document the development process. They present the individual- and group results in plenary.
The procedure, the feasibility as far as the functionality of the results is assessed.
The reflection and evaluation takes place with the help of a cloud-based evaluation software (for example: FORMS).
The results are discussed with the students.
