Manufacturing Course Descriptions
MANF155 - MANUFACTURING PROCESSES (3-2-4)
This survey course introduces the student to the operation of the engine lathe, drill press, surface grinders, and milling machines. Fabrication techniques, machining times, set-up times, material feed rates, and cutting speeds are analyzed throughout the course. The Arioch Center Course.
MANF195 - MANUFACTURING PROCESSES I (2-4-4)
This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of present-day manufacturing processes. Through lectures, demonstrations, and practical applications, the student will be introduced to various manufacturing processes. Topics will include machine tools, welding, casting, sheet metal, and an introduction to numerical control programming. Day Course.
MANF260 - QUALITY CONTROL (2-2-3)
This course examines quality and reliability development, process planning, evaluation and control, supplier quality assurance measurement equipment and field quality evaluation. Much of this course is devoted to statistical control concept and quality circles which are further investigated in the laboratory. Prerequisite: MATH250 Precalculus; and MGMT250 Research Methods in Business. Day Course.
MANF305 - COMPUTER AIDED MANUFACTURING (2-2-3)
A hands-on computer-aided manufacturing course. Students will utilize the latest PC-based industrial "CAM" software to produce Computer Numerical Control machine tool programs. The students will perform several milling and turning projects. Prerequisite: MANF195 Manufacturing Processes and ELMC110 Engineering Graphics. Day Course.
MANF306 - COMPUTER NUMERICAL CONTROL PROGRAMMING ( 1-4-3)
This is a survey course of computer-aided industrial programming. Students are introduced to the history and fundamental concepts of Manual Numerical Control (NC) programming. Students will use a PC graphics-based ?CAM? software package to produce Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programs. Several industrial machining lab projects will also be assigned. Prerequisites: MATH205; and DSGN135 or COMP113; and INTD155 or ELMC110. Day Course.
MANF405 - MANUFACTURING PLANNING AND CONTROL (2-4-4)
Topics in production planning, including time-series analysis, inventory systems, project planning, scheduling, and operations sequencing will be examined. Process planning, methods, and work measurement will also be covered. Students will participate in a competitive computer simulation, using the manufacturing control elements presented in the course. Prerequisite: Junior status. Day Course.
MANF500 - APPLIED ROBOTICS (2-2-3)
Components and systems that make up a flexible manufacturing cell, including robotics and automated systems, will be presented. The course places heavy emphasis on process control, including sensor and programmable logic applications. Students will demonstrate proficiency in all aspects of production control through presentations and laboratoryprojects. Prerequisite: MANF305 Computer Aided Manufacturing. Day Course.
MANF530 - QUALITY ASSURANCE (3-2-4)
This course examines quality and reliability development, process planning, evaluation, and control, supplier quality assurance, measurement equipment, and field quality evaluation. Much of this course is devoted to Statistical Process Control and Total Quality Management. Prerequisite: Junior Status; MATH505 Probability and Statistics for Engineers. Day Course.
MANF600 - FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS (3-2-4)
Components and systems that make up a FMS will be studied, including automated guided vehicles, automatic storage and retrieval systems, material handling equipment, automated quality control, and tool management equipment. Using the principles of design for manufacture and group technology, students will complete a project utilizing an existing flexible manufacturing cell. Prerequisite: MANF500 Applied Robotics. Day Course.
