Fabrication Process

Provided by: ToolingU

“Fabrication Process” outlines the procedures that a project planner should follow when creating a product from start to finish where a fabrication project can be something as simple as building a cabinet or as complex as constructing a motorcycle. After coming up with a project idea, the planner should list all of the requirements, including material, safety, and budgetary concerns. If all requirements can be met, the planner should research objects similar to the project idea and develop a design. The planner then creates a blueprint of the project, as well as a bill of materials. After deciding on the order of operations that will result in the completed project, the planner should implement the plan step by step to complete the project. There are many important considerations involved with any fabrication process. After this class, users will be able to develop a fabrication plan and complete a project.
