A major part of the final properties and cost of a product is decided through the choice of manufacturing methods, and how the chosen methods are designed and controlled. The main purpose with the course is to give the student a broad understanding of existing manufacturing processes, in order to be able to control the critical product attributes; cost, function and properties.
