Course Summary

All the engineering universities are mostly producing Managers and Supervisors. The part of the curriculum which deals with design and innovation goes wasted and when they enter the industry they are mostly utilized for profit enhancement of the product in questions by optimization of domains like commissioning, erection, production, sales, marketing and maintenance using already established quality standards. Few of them get exposure of the new trends of these domains in the international world after few years and on coming back they lead the rest to adopt those trends and game goes on. Many engineers and innovative minds just kill their ideas in their head either due to short of time and budget or due to risk of failure. The idea of this course is to enhance the visualization of high level technical managers, designers and practicing engineers, beyond the scope of common reverse engineering and to think innovatively yourself than following others.

This course will introduce the attendee to a new world where he can use common machine elements like gears, belts, shafts, chains, cams etc. and simulate anything the way he wants it to work with the help of the state of the art simulation software. After visualizing and optimizing his required motion using his available space he can look for the appropriate motors, actuators and other driving elements available in the market. Furthermore, without spending a penny, he can also test his individual part of designed mechanism for failure analysis under different conditions in the same virtual work of multi body dynamics.
