Training: M1.1 – Handling of over constraints


Kinematics: Handling of over-constraints

This module covers how to deal with over-constraints in mechanical designs. How to evaluate the impact of over-constraints and how to make trade-offs between over-constraints, cost, quality, and performance.

Course objectives

After course completion the participant will be able to:

  • Be able to communicate over-constraints and effects of them
  • Be able to provide a visual overview of product robustness and potential mitigations
  • Be able to describe functions and assess robustness of them
  • Be able to optimize functions by changing geometry to your advantage
  • Estimate performance of a function before test
  • Link design condition and robustness to the trustworthiness of calculations
  • Use systematic workflows to mitigate design issues (over constraints/unclarities)
