2. Pre-Requisites

Although no requeriments are necessary, it is strongly recommended that the student has previously studied the courses Manufacturing Processes and Industrial Organization and Manufacturing Technology.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This course is close to the courses "Procesos de Fabricación y Organización Industrial" y "Tecnología de Fabricación". Thus the contents are a deeper treatment of the quality tecniques ot the dimensional control for manufacturing products in the mechanical industry. Therefore, students adquire professional competences that are directly connected to the mechanical manufacturing processes..

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 0.00% 60.00%
Oral presentations assessment 15.00% 15.00%
Laboratory sessions 25.00% 25.00%
Assessment of active participation 10.00% 0.00%
Mid-term tests 50.00% 0.00%
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 4 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 12.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The student must take the exam in the ordinary call on the contents not passed or compensated in partial exams. In order to compensate a partial test, the student must obtain a minimum mark of 3.5 out of 10. In particular, in the ordinary call, the student must take the exam on the contents not previously assessed in partial exams. The overall mark of the ordinary test, together with those of the mid-term exams passed or compensated, if applicable, will correspond to 50% of the evaluation. Note: in case the student does not get the minimum mark of 3.5 points required to pass the subject in the exam taken in the ordinary call, he/she will be graded with the mark obtained in that exam.
    Although it is obvious, we remind the student that in order to pass the course it must be obtained at least 5 points in the weighted grade of the assessed activities.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    In case the student is not assessed continuously, he/she will take a final test with the theoretical-practical contents of the subject with a weighting of 60%. A specific part will be included with questions representative of the students oral presentations, with a weighting of 15%. The minimum grade of the exam of theoretical and practical contents of the course must be 3.5 points out of 10 in order to pass the course. The student must ask the professor to take a practical exam worth 25% of the course. The student must request the practical exam prior to the exam established in the ordinary call. The exam will consist of doing one or more practicals carried out during the course; the a date and time of this exam will be arranged with the student.

    Although it is obvious, we remind the student that in order to pass the course it must be obtained at least 5 points in the weighted grade of the assessed activities.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Students evaluated by continuous system must do an exam about the course contents (50%) and it is necessary to obtain 3.5 out of 10 to pass the course. If the student does not reach the minimum score pointed out before in the exam, the global score will the one obtained in it. Laboratory activities, oral presentation of topics and the participation in classes activities, will be taken into account. If the student needs to recover any of these parts for not having been passed, a specific exam for the corresponding parts should be done. Particularly, participation in classes will be recovered weighting 60% the exam of the course contents.

Students that were evaluated by non-continuous system, will be under the same considerations than those applied in the ordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The specifications for the resit/retake exam are applicable.

General comments about the planning: Two partial exams may be done depending on the number of students: the first one could be foreseen in the 8th week and the second one in the last week of the semester. Students presentations (oral works) could be carried out every week from the 5th one but it will be studied at the beginning of the semester according to the ratio. The established planning may be subjected to changes according to the dynamic of the course and to the teacher criterion.
