Machine Design

Mechanical Design


A machine is made up of mechanisms that work together to satisfy the requirements of what the machine needs to accomplish. Mechanisms can still be used independently, such as an umbrella, but cannot accomplish what a machine can because a machine controls energy in addition to motion. Machine design takes into account kinetics and kinematics, which deal with motion and the forces on an object in motion. Machine design is applied through a specific process including determining what the machine needs to do, benchmarking and defining goals and requirements, brainstorming, evaluating and selecting from the different options, creating an in-depth design, creating and testing a prototype, and finally manufacturing the machine.
