This report illustrates a comparative study of various joining methods involved in sheet metal production. In this report it shows the selection of joining methods, which includes comparing the advantages and disadvantages of a method over the other ones and choosing the best method for joining. On the basis of various joining process from references, a table is generated containing set of criterion that helps in evaluation of various sheet metal joining processes and in selecting the most suitable process for a particular product. Three products are selected and a comprehensive study of the joining methods is analyzed with the help of various parameters. The table thus is the main part of the analysis process of this study and can be advanced with the beneficial results. It helps in a better and easy understanding and comparing the various methods, which provides the foundation of this study and analysis. The suitability of the joining method for various types of cases of different sheet metal products can be tested with the help of this table. The sections of the created table display the requirements of manufacturing. The important factor has been considered and given focus in the table, as how the usage of these parameters is important in percentages according to particular or individual case. The analysis of the methods can be extended or altered by changing the parameters according to the constraint. The use of this table is demonstrated by pertaining the cases from sheet metal production.
