Participants get the opportunity to tour SIMTech's Model Factory and/or Innovation Factory for this course.
A*STAR Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and PALO IT have jointly developed a unique and immersive “Product Design, Innovation and Fabrication” course that offer participants with a hands-on experience in product design, innovation, and fabrication processes. Through 42 hours of training, participants will gain knowledge and experience in using design software and various fabrication methods, including 3D printing and laser cutting. Understanding the engineering materials and the manufacturing technologies, learn how to apply Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) guidelines in product design. Participants will also acquire skills in electronics prototyping with development boards. The course develops a broad skill set applicable to a range of careers in industries that require creative thinking as well as digital and technological competencies.
Knowledge and skills about product development are becoming prominent to employees crossing job and industries. This course covers the process of product development and trains the use of state-of-art computer tools with fabrication facilities to generate new models and new prototypes. Participants shall learn how to generate innovative product concepts and further build mechanical and electrical prototypes. With the guidance of the experts in product development, participants will be able to get in-depth knowledge and comprehensive hands-on experience in key methods and tools such as CAD software modelling, plastic laser cutting, Fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing. Practice Design for Manufacturing and Assembly strategies in product design analysis and understand the quality management systems.
