LO 3.4

Make decisions based on the initial costs and running costs of Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS), Flexible Manufacturing Cells (FMC) and stand-alone machinery

You have been given three different manufacturing systems to produce the following product: - A machine vice, the volume required = 100,000 P/A, identify all the components that are required and determine how they will be manufactured. Develop a manufacturing solution for each of the above systems (FMS, FMC or Standalone machinery.)

See moodle for solid models of all the components

LO 4.1 Explain the technical requirements, uses and applications of special manufacturing processes.

For the following, describe the process and identify suitable products that can be manufactured. Use suitable visual methods to help with your description.

1/ Chemical machining

2/ Electro discharge machining (die sinking, wire cutting)

3/ Laser machining

4/ Water jet cutting

5/ PCB routing and drilling

6/ Ultrasonic machining

7/ Rapid prototyping

8/ Flame cutting

9/ Plasma cutting

10/ Emerging technologies

11/ Economics of non-traditional manufacturing processes

4.2 Discuss the benefits and drawbacks of special manufacturing processes.

From the list in LO4.1 Investigate 5 of the processes and identify a range of identifiable drawbacks and a range of tangible benefits. Use calculations if appropriate to validate your answers.

4.3 identify the mix of manufacturing process equipment required to produce given components and assemblies economically.

For 2 of the products illustrated below suggest the most suitable forms of manufacturing equipment required identify suitable machine and show indicative costs, Look at all aspects of the product both mechanically and electrically if relevant. State any assumptions you make such as (quantity produced, material, costs, pay back period, and cycle time estimation etc.)

Flexible manufacturing system: it is a manufacturing system in which assembly of product remain
flexible and allow to change according to approval flexibility. It categorize into two group with both
numerical subcategories.

In machine flexibility system product able to change from new product type. And can change the order of
operation. Another category is routing flexibility, in which multiple machine perform with this system
and can produce different machining process, large scale of production and large amount of volume also.

As shown in above
