Project-oriented Development and Practice of the Machinery Manufacturing Technology Course

Li Xaomian, Wu Tiejun


The traditional teaching of machinery manufacturing technology considers typical parts, such as the axial and box – the teaching carriers and focuses on explaining theoretical knowledge and cultivating the determining process capabilities but does not integrate the processability of the product structure, processing, measurement, or assembly of mechanical parts. This type of teaching is dissociated with the actual production process of mechanical products and does not meet the requirement for students to solve actual problems by using mechanical manufacturing technology. The course development concept of working process systematization was investigated, and the main work positions, typical work tasks, corresponding professional ability requirements of mechanical and equipment enterprises, and course objectives were analyzed. Three learning projects with progressive difficulty and six interrelated tasks were designed on the basis of creating typical mechanical products. Teaching was conducted according to an action-oriented, six-step method to realize the teaching mode of “doing in learning, learning in doing.” The results indicate that students and enterprises recognize the teaching design proposed in this study. The interest of students in learning was evidently increased, and their ability to solve practical production problems through a comprehensive application of professional knowledge was enhanced.
