Collaborative and Computer Aided Design


Collaborative and Computer Aided Design
Collaborative and Computer Aided Design
Instructor: Pascal Morenton
Professor, École Centrale Paris
[email protected]
Prerequisite knowledge: none
Course description: The course begins by an overview of the state of art in
Collaborative and Computer Aided Design. The main topics are:
Collaborative teamwork and extended enterprise
Computer Aided Design (CAD), Digital Mock-up
Electronic Data Management (EDM)
Reverse engineering and rapid prototyping
Then the students attend a short training for a CAD tool and realize a case study by
teams of four students. During this case study, students have to design and make the
prototype of a system that meets given specifications.
Course objectives: This course aims at presenting and introducing the main concepts
and tools used in digital engineering in the fields of mechatronic and multidisciplinary
design processes.
Textbook: course reader.
Computer software: a CAD licence and a electronic data management system will be
available to each attendee.
Course content: The course is organized into the following lecture and lab topics:
An introduction to Collaborative and Computer Aided Design (lecture – 6h)
SPACECLAIM CAD Training (labs – 9h)
Study case by teams of 4 students (labs – 18h)
Oral defense (Oral defense – 3h)
Evaluation Methods: participation and oral defense of the study case
