Course Description


Course examines the basic manufacturing processes from product design through production

and quality testing.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

To  study  how  a  design  can  be  made  suitable  for  various  advance  manufacturing  and assembly process requirements.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, the student should be able to:

  •  Learn the dimensioning details needed for building and assembling a manufacturing unit.
  •   Learn the application of CNC machines has impacted manufacturing.
  •  Explain the advantages and disadvantages of using machining in a manufacturing environment
  • Identify the major axis of a machine and identify where the program zero point should be for any given project.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The students will be able to:

  •  Program  simple  lathe  and  mill  parts  requiring  notches,  radius  edges,  drill  hole patterns, part profiles, and pocket milling. Programs will be generated using “G” and “M” codes.
  •   Read a  detailed  blue print, Pick the  tooling necessary for  machining, create  the program to build the part, and be able to QC the finished part using micrometers, calipers, and other specialized measurement equipment.
  •  Look at a potential product and decide how to design the parts for manufacturability, and outline how the elements of constraint management limit the assembly process.
