High volume manufacturing of engineering products is strongly depending on the condition of the incoming engineering materials. The processed tangible raw materials with required properties are eventually converted into a profitable product if the engineering materials are well “processed” according to the required “properties” needed in the product. Therefore, fully understand of the relationship among “material”, “process”, and “product” is extremely important to ensure a reliable product is being produced. In this introductory course, this relationship together with an overview of the concept of “Octagonal Relationship of Engineering Material” will be briefly explained. Application of this knowledge to address typical engineering issues will be demonstrated.
