DESCRIPTION

SDSM&T Catalog Description:

IENG 475 Computer-Controlled Manufacturing Systems & Robotics

Credits: (2-1) 3

Fundamental concepts of using computers in the design of a computer integrated, discrete-item, manufacturing facility are covered. Basic ideas of Computer Aided Design (CAD), Group Technology (GT), process planning, integrated production control and computer numerical control are covered. The manufacturability issues and concepts of selecting and using robots in the workplace are explored.

Prerequisite: Senior standing or permission of instructor.

Learning Objectives:

Students will demonstrate:

 

 

the ability to describe a solid in terms of engineering specifications, tolerances, and basic manufacturing features.

the ability to identify production sequences and specify processing parameters for turning and milling.

the ability to classify a GT-PC&C coding for two parts to retrieve and modify the process plan/routing.

the ability to determine a feasible sensor and specify an actuator to accomplish a task.

the ability to design and construct a control system in fluid, electric, electronic, or programmable logic..

the ability to describe and manipulate a solid in terms of the computer data structures used for CAD.

the ability to design and evaluate a system to hold and locate workpieces.
