A workshop on Industrial Design: Process and Importance was conducted at Dronacharya Group of Institutions, Greater Noida on 28th February 2017. The workshop was organized by DGI SAEINDIA COLLEGIATE CLUB in association with Institute of Industrial Design (IID), New Delhi. The workshop was attended by Mechanical 3rd Year students. The objective of the workshop was to make students aware about the product design process used by industries and to develop designing, drafting and analysis skills as per the requirement of the industry. Institute of Industrial Design is a premium arm of CADD Centre Training Services Pvt. Ltd. To bridge the skill gap, CADD Centre through ï¿½ IID is imparting advanced training focusing on engineering skills and tools.
Welcoming the trainees, Prof. D. V. Bhise-HOD, Mechanical Engineering, highlighted the objective of organizing the workshop. Prof. Bhise added that skill development is need of the hour; students must supplement their theoretical knowledge with practical know-how of design.
The workshop portrayed various computational methods in Mechanical Engineering Viz. Concept Sketching, Automotive Styling and Product Styling, Model Making (Clay), Ergonomics FEM, ANSYS and CFD (ANSYS Fluent).
The first keynote session was conducted by Mr. Priyanshu-Design Consultant, IID who explained the stepwise process of design for industrial products. Mr. Priyanshu also presented an overview of the design process for connecting rod of an IC engine. He demonstrated the applicability and limitation of different soft wares used for this purpose.
