Course Description

Introduces the interaction of design with industrial materials and processes. Emphasizes the connection of design, materials, and processes with technical and economic feasibility, trade-offs, and automation. Prerequisites: (CMET121 and 122); or (ENGR101 and PHY211). Audit available.

Addendum to Course Description

This 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

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Recommend appropriate part manufacturing processes when provided a set of functional requirements and product development constraints.
  2. Recommend cost-effective material options based upon net part shape, expected loading, operating environment, cost constraints, and life expectancy.
  3. Fabricate basic parts and assemblies using powered and non-powered machine shop equipment in conjunction with mechanical documentation.
  4. Ascertain product and process quality levels through the use of precision measurement tools and statistical quality control charts.
  5. Mitigate production problems using risk management and root cause analysis tools.
  6. Communicate effectively with industry personnel by developing a manufacturing-centric vocabulary.

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%

     Laboratory Assignments    30%
