ENAM12006 - Mechanical Component Selection
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENAM12006 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

Students select and specify common mechanical engineering components like drive line components, bearings and fasteners. They determine requirements for components, research to find information to guide selection, select and size components, and specify the selected components. They select fasteners and indicate fits, tolerances and finishes required for mechanical components. Students describe the roles and responsibilities of members of engineering teams and develop skills required to work and learn independently and collaboratively, and to solve problems and present solutions. Distance education (FLEX) students are required to have access to a computer and make frequent use of the Internet.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 50%
2. Written Assessment 50%
3. Written Assessment Pass/Fail

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
It is easier using study guide to navigate and get relevant information on a topic. The book topics were clearly stated 'Have your say' course evaluation survey This practice will be continued.
The course should have more than 2 assignments and they should be equally spaced out. 'Have your say' course evaluation survey There are 3 assessments in this course which includes two assignments and a workbook. There are evenly spread now. Room for improvement for these tasks are to be explored.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Determine requirements for components in mechanical assemblies and systems from design notes, related sources of information and from analysis of performance and purpose
  2. Research and obtain information required to select components
  3. Select and size components and explain the basis for selections
  4. Specify selected components using terminology relating to mechanical component selection
  5. Select fasteners for given applications and explain reasons for the selection
  6. Describe and explain methods of indicating fits, finishes and tolerances, and apply these to component selection
  7. Describe the roles and responsibilities of members of engineering teams and the procedures used to maintain safety and quality in design, production and operation
  8. Work and learn collaboratively and professionally to investigate and solve open ended problems, check work and present solutions

The learning Outcomes for this Unit are linked to Engineers Australia stage one competency standards for Engineering Associates.

3 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Workbook
Task Description

The Workbook provides a record or detailed diary of each individual student’s study and learning activities throughout the unit and should include all individual work carried out. Preparation of a Workbook should be understood as good study technique. It also provides evidence that students have adequately studied the whole unit and achieved unit learning outcomes. Each entry should be dated, pages should be numbered and show your name or initials. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of term. Show rough attempts at problems including failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas. In the Workbook students should record:

  • study notes taken while studying textbooks and unit resources
  • study notes taken during lectures and/or workshops
  • personal study summaries of key concepts
  • notes, sketches/ drawings or mind-maps
  • planning and preparation for team/project tasks
  • planning and preparation for online unit discussions
  • workbook practice tasks you are asked to complete in the Unit Website
  • initial attempts at set tutorial tasks
  • initial attempts at assignment tasks
  • preparation for class tests or exams.
Assessment Due Date Exam Week Friday (20-Oct-2017) 11:45 PM AEST
Return Date to Students It is expected that assignment will be returned in 2 weeks after the due date.
Weighting Pass/Fail
Assessment Criteria

Workbook questions will be set for each topic and will be available on the Unit Website. If students have difficulty with Workbook questions, they should seek assistance. All questions must be successfully completed in the workbook and responses must show sufficient working and explanation to allow step-by-step checking by the marker. At least 50% of the questions must be completed to achieve a passing grade. A question will be deemed to have been completed if the student has shown correct procedure and sound understanding of the work. All calculations should be justified with reference to the text or relevant Standards and Codes.

Conditions Minimum mark or grade - To pass this unit you must submit all assessment items and obtain an overall grade of at least 50% in each assessment item.
