Course DescriptionCovers today's global economy and solutions to problems of manufacturing enterprise. Factors addressed: statistical process/quality control, robotics, CAD, CAM, DFA/DFM, and CIM. Traditional and nontraditional manufacturing processes covered. Prerequisites: CMET 121, 122. Prerequisite or concurrent: CMET 133, WR 121.
Addendum to Course DescriptionThis course will provide the student with an introduction to the concepts and technologies from a designer's viewpoint of the principal manufacturing processes utilized by industry. Discussion subjects include the manufacturing system and its operating principles, casting, forming, material removal, welding, quality control, and advanced manufacturing processes, in a lecture/lab environment.. Manufacturing Processes is a required course in the Mechanical Engineering Transfer Degree. Manufacturing Processes covers -The interaction of design with industrial materials and processes is considered in connection with technical and economic feasibility, trade-offs and automation.
Intended Outcomes for the course
This course is based on competency mastery. Each section is assigned to a specific competency. Sections may be independent or dependent on other sections. The following competency profile is based upon industry standards that have been established for this course:
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of the operational principles of a complete manufacturing system including:
- Internal and External challenges.
- World Class Manufacturing.
- The Design Process
- The Production Process
- Material Selection
- Manufacturing Process Selection
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of Casting Processes
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of Forming Processes
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of Material Removal Processes.
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of Joining Processes.
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of Measurement and Quality Assurance.
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of Advanced Manufacturing Processes.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Student performance measurements are based on typical business/industry performance standards. They are grouped into performance competencies (specific skills) and knowledge competencies (understanding specific subjects). The various areas of study during the course will be evaluated by a variety of activities. Typical of those activities are the following:
Home Work Assignments - Participation in individual or team structured problem exercises. The emphasis will be to provide introduction to the appropriate areas of study presented/discussed during the class and listed in the course content guide.
Examination - A take home examination in the form of multiple choice, true/false, matching, short answer structure that addresses the subject areas presented/discussed during the class and listed in the course content guide. The typed responses are to be turned in at the next to last class meeting. Attendance at all scheduled class meetings is strongly encouraged and may be considered in the final grade assignment. The following schedule of weight will apply to the evaluation activities for this course.
Final Examination 35%
Home Work Assignments 35%
