Quality Control

A study of the techniques used to collect, organize and analyze information which can be used in making decisions regarding quality. The course will begin with a review of the basic principles of statistics and probability and will then develop such topics as process capability, process control, acceptance sampling and reliability. The scope of quality […]

Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)

A study of flexible industrial automation as it applies to product-producing industry. Particular emphasis is on numerical control, CAD/CAM, and computer integrated manufacturing. The basic theory and application of these areas are studied. In the laboratory portion of the course, the student has the opportunity to set up, program, and operate aspects of a computer […]

Production Systems

A study of the organization of the production system as well as the techniques used to control its operation. Topics covered include forecasting, production planning, plant layout, inventory control, work measurement, job sequencing, and operation scheduling. An introduction to Lean Manufacturing concepts is also provided. (Prerequisite: MFET 111C.)

Manufacturing Processes and Machine Tools

A technical study of the theory, equipment and application of machine tools and metal removal processes. Processes covered include turning, milling, drilling, with an emphasis on numerical control. Theory is applied through actual machine operation in laboratory. (Prerequisites: MFET 111C and MCET 105C or MNFP 105C)

Lean Manufacturing

A study of the concept of Lean Production applied to the manufacturing sector. The course covers the fundamental concepts and philosophy of lean used to achieve operational excellence. Lean concepts such as waste reduction, one-piece flow, pull systems, constant continuous improvement, development of personnel into leaders. Lean concepts/tools covered will include kaizen, value stream mapping, […]

Measurement and Control

The course begins with the study of basic electronics (analog and digital) and electronic components (transistors, op-amps, SCR’s). Electromechanical principles are introduced, leading to consideration of sensors and transducers used in production processes. Paralleling this sequence is the development of programming in Visual Basic. These two paths join during the second half of the course […]

Manufacturing and Materials Processing

The course is designed to provide a basic understanding of traditional methods of materials processing used in product manufacturing. Through lectures, demonstrations, and firsthand laboratory exposure, the student is given the theory and applications of each process. The following are covered: casting, extruding, forging, molding, forming, heat treating, joining, and an introduction to machining methods, […]
