Mechanism: Device that transform motion to some desired pattern. It must first be studied "kinematically" to find out the Velocity/Acceleration then analyze it’s kinetics to determine forces. A typical mechatronic system picks up signals from the environment. motions and actions. with very low forces and transmit little power. Mechatronics: interdisciplinary area of engineering that combines mechanical and electrical engineering and computer science. transforming them for example into forces.M2013.1 – DISEÑO Y SÍNTESIS DE MAQUINAS JANUARY – MAY 2014 Definitions: Kinematics: The study of motion without regard to Forces Kinetics: The Study of forces on systems in motion. Machine: a Mechanism designed to provide significant forces and power. Euler’s Diagram by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute . processes them to generate output signals.

Brainstorming.1 – DISEÑO Y SÍNTESIS DE MAQUINAS JANUARY – MAY 2014 Design Process: 1.Typically fabricated using low volume tools but must reflect the intended design.. test data. SAE etc. Generate a decision matrix.Test the prototype at Lab facilities and prove it meets the performance requirements & specifications.. 5.Analyze and compare: performance.. A better lawn mower.. findings 8. creative phase.Re-design if necessarily.. 3.. Generate detailed designs.Gather background information about the physics. rate each and summarize the results. 7. idea generation.Engineering reports.Voice of the customer “Improved drill. patent search. reliability.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computed Aided Engineering (CAE). improve the quality of design. computerized graphic modeling of the configuration (2) Graphical simulation of operation and control of action (3) and integration of technologies that constitute the new mechatronic product. Are identified by three main tasks: (1) Mathematical Model of the kinematics and dynamics of the Design. .1 – DISEÑO Y SÍNTESIS DE MAQUINAS JANUARY – MAY 2014 Design Methodology: Based on Concurrent Engineering EC. or optimization of a design. modification. ease of assembly and functionality. machining. CAD is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer. CAD output is often in the form of electronic files for print. analysis. which considers varies life cycles values for a product from the design stage and covers other aspects such as ease of manufacture. Concurrent Engineering is a set of Design and manufacturing practices.
