A MODEL FOR PROJECT-BASED EDUCATION IN MANUFACTURING SYSTEM DESIGN AND ITS APPLICATION ON TESTING RESEARCH RESULTS
In this paper, a method for project-based education in engineering design methodology, focused on manufacturing system development, in collaboration with industrial partners is presented. This method can also be used as a framework for conducting the engineering design research and testing the research results within the context of undergraduate engineering projects. In addition, this paper presents a case study where a manufacturing system concept for an electromechanical product used for chemical analysis (e.g. in development of pharmaceuticals) is developed in a student project that, in its turn, is used for validating a subset of a novel manufacturing system development methodology.
