Why Choose this Training Course?

Reverse engineering is a common and acceptable practice in the branch of the mechanical design and manufacturing based industry. It is a vital technique in the spare parts and product design cycle. The original manufacturer of a product no longer produces a product. Reverse engineering has become a practical method in case the original supplier is unable or unwilling to provide additional parts.

Unavailability of a simple less expensive spare part may keep the whole production line inoperable. Shortages of spare parts can result in lost production (idle manpower and inoperable machine or lost capacity), a delay in completion date (may have cost penalty for late completion of any scheduled products), present profit loss (may have loss of sales in the current market since no production) and future profit loss (goodwill erosion).

This PetroKnowledge training course introduces participants to the use of modern Computer-Aided Design (CAD) techniques in generation of 3D digital models from physical objects. Topics include contact and non-contact data acquisition techniques, data type and exchange formats, and advanced solid modeling visualization and surfacing techniques. The training course is intended to familiarize engineers, technicians and operators with the guidelines and best practices employed in utilizing reverse engineering, a three-dimensional product or model to quickly captured in digital form, re-modeled, and exported for rapid prototyping/tooling or rapid manufacturing.

This 5 Day intensive PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • Engineering Design
  • Problem Formulation (Needs, Goals and Objectives)
  • Information Gathering with Reverse Engineering
  • Concept Generation
  • Project Planning (Gantt, CPM, PERT)
  • Decision Making (Concept Selection)
  • Detailed Design Modeling
  • Design for Manufacturing

What are the Goals?

By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the concept of reverse engineering technology
  • Perform reverse engineering processes and techniques through the digitizing/ scanning methods
  • Generate CAD model from scanned data/CMM
  • Apply product Development process
  • Manipulate CAD data for CAM/NC or CNC machining processes or Rapid prototype

Organisational Impact

An immediate and drastic positive impact on the performance of the organization will become evident after attending this PetroKnowledge Reverse Engineering training course and this includes:

  • Fabricate a product no longer produced
  • Provide adequate documentation of the original design
  • Substitute no longer exist manufacturer for needed product
  • Generate a design documentation which has been lost or never existed
  • Design out some bad features of a product. For example, excessive wear
  • Strengthen the good features of a product based on long-term usage
  • Analyze the good and bad features of competitors' product
  • Explore new avenues to improve product performance and features

Personal Impact

Reverse engineering builds a self-satisfaction feeling to engineers through:

  • Establishing a creativeness in problem solving
  • Finding solutions
  • Evaluating and establishing the best solution
  • Inspects no longer existing manufacturer spare parts and realize it's geometry
  • Model their concept on computer for further analysis
  • Reproduce a CAD model of existing part
  • Communicate their concepts effectively
  • Largely reduce the production period and costs in product manufacturing industries
