Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

MANE 4380U – Life Cycle Engineering

The course introduces the fundamentals of both product and process engineering with an emphasis on life cycle models. A mixture of practical and theoretical topics, methodologies, principles, and techniques of life cycle engineering are covered such as design reviews, re-engineering, mass customization, product modularity, cost/benefit analysis, value engineering, and life-cycle design [e.g. Design for Assembly (DFA), Design for Manufacturing (DFM), Design for Serviceability (DFS), Reliability design etc.]. Students develop an understanding of the performance, cost, and environmental implications of both product design and manufacture and become capable of translating these into engineering cradle-to-grave responsibility requirements, goals, and specifications in order to maximize the values of products and the effectiveness of supply chain management while containing the costs to the manufacturer, the user, and society. Energy utilization is considered throughout along with energy-related life cycle methods.
