This section of the course is hugely important to developing your understanding and knowledge of industrial practises and is particularly relavent to the topic of household appliances, the area which we will be concentrating on.
Where possible, we will try to arrange videos or industrial visits so that you can see for yourselves some of the processes that will be described. These may be applicable to wood, metal, plastic or combinations of these. I have dealt with them in no particular order beyond a gradual increase in complexity.
