  1. Enterprise elements to enhance understanding Applied Manufacturing GCSE UNIT 3 Applications of Technology

  2. Applied Manufacturing GCSEUnit 3 Aim of the Unit:- To investigate the impact of modern technology on the design and manufacture of a range of products

  3. Applied Manufacturing GCSEUnit 3 • Modern technology, includes….. • Production implications • Cost implications • Human resource implications • Socio-economic implications • Demographic implications

  4. Applied Manufacturing GCSEUnit 3 • New technology has helped to develop design and manufacturing processes • New technology has improved the quality of products and services offered to customers You will learn how:-

  5. Applied Manufacturing GCSEUnit 3 • Information and communications technology • New components and a range of modern materials including smart materials • Control technology You will investigate:-

  6. The use of I.C.T.includes • Sourcing and handling information and data, such as databases, spreadsheets and internet sites • CAD (computer-aided design) techniques • CAM (computer-aided manufacture) • Communications technology • Control technology

  7. Use of Modern and Smart Materials and Components including:- • Polymers, inc plastics, adhesives and coatings • Metals and composites • Biological, chemical and food products, modified ingredients and methods of preparation and production • Computer technology, inc microprocessors • Micro-electronic components • Textile technology, inc liquid crystal, coated fabrics and thermochromic dyes

  8. The use of systems and control technology:- • To organise, monitor and control production including:- • Process/quality control and automation, inc PLCs • Robotics, including continuous operation, increased speed, etc • ICT as applied to integrated manufacturing/engineering systems, etc

  9. The impact of modern technology. • Range, types and availability of products • Design and development of products • Materials, components and ingredients • Safety and efficiency of modern methods of production • Improved characteristics of products, e.g. size, weight/density, ease of use, disposability and reclaimability • Markets for the products

  10. Advantages and Disadvantages of Modern Technology • Changes in the type and size of workforce (social implications) • Changes in the working environment • Impact on the global environment and sustainability

  11. Investigating Products • Your teacher has gathered together a number of examples of the same product (*as appropriate to the course) • These products have either been produced at different times, for different purposes, within a price band, for use in different environments, etc • Examine each and record as much information you can derive and then compare with the accompanying checklist (* these should be obtained/produced locally wherever possible)

  12. Considerations • The role modern technology plays in the design and manufacture of the product • The technology or process it replaced • The benefits of using the technology • The implications of using the technology, for the product and the manufacturer

  13. Visit to modern manufacturing base • You will be visiting Company “ABC” • This company operates primarily using modern technology • You will need to refer to the worksheet. “Visit to a modern manufacturing facility” to decide what questions you need to ask on the visit • Discuss with your teacher and other class members

  14. How does the product work? In terms of its:- • Purpose • Structure and form • Materials and components • Technology used

  15. Further considerations • Should manufacturers continue to develop and adopt new technologies? • Should manufacturers continue to improve their products? • Should they consider the workforce and the social implications of advancement brought about by technological advancement? • How much should they consider global implications of this advancement?
