Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to generate the motions of working organs, tools and processed goods under consideration of technological requirements and to optimize them with regard to various criteria (acceleration, driving forces, vibration behavior). They will be able to design (mechatronic) solutions for the implementation of given motions, record their characteristics and estimate the limits of their application. They will be able to select the appropriate calculation model for the respective phase of the development process and to implement it with the aid of analytical approaches or by using the FMD software RECURDYN.
