15 hours / 2 days

8:30am - 5pm

Mode of Training:


Course Introduction

Participants will be introduced to Digitalisation in the area of Product Design and Development and its impact on manufacturing and businesses. Industry examples and best practices will be shared in the course. 

Participants will also be introduced to Synchronous Technology and techniques which are suited for immediate manufacture via today’s additive processes. 

The course will cover topics such as simulation techniques, how to overcome electromechanical challenges by integration of mechanical and electrical design, Reverse Engineering and Additive Manufacturing, 3D Scanning and editing, producing parts using 3D printing, dynamic technical publications, scalable data management and Cloud Based Collaboration. 

Participants get the chance to learn how to quickly create 3D technical publications for products, take control of data with scalable data management tools, and leverage the cloud for online Computer-Aided Design (CAD) management. 

Course Objective

This course provides participants with an appreciation of trends in digital transformation in product design and development, and how digitalisation can transform businesses and workplaces. Participants will learn about advanced Product Design, Development, and Management tools, through the use of Solid Edge (Solid Edge is a 3D CAD software). It allows users to create 3D models, run simulations, integrate mechanical and electrical CAD, etc. It also has data management tools to allow information to be share and controlled for multiple users working on product development and manufacturing. 

Course Outline

By the end of the course, participants will be able to: 

• Summarise trends in digital transformation in product design and development 
• Sketch in CAD software environment with Synchronous Technology 
• Describe the various concepts used in mechanical design including topology optimisation and generative design
• Use 3D modelling software to create basic three-dimensional models
• Apply reverse engineering techniques using digital scanning and additive manufacturing
• Relate the advantages of having an integrated electrical design
• State the need and list the tools to perform engineering simulation for design verification and validation
• Create dynamic technical publications to communicate design outcomes
• Recognise and list the advantages of adopting scalable data management and cloud based collaboration

Suitable for

Precision Engineering, Product Development, Design, Engineering Services, Built Environment.
