  • Display a personal sense of responsibility for your work

5. Research

  • Demonstrate professional use and management of information.


 

Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

On completion of this course you should be able to:

  1. Identify the main elements in computer integrated manufacturing systems;
  2. Apply knowledge of computer aided process planning, feature and group technology, and data exchange in manufacturing processes.  
  3. Apply the concepts/components of computer integrated manufacturing and integrate them in a coordinated fashion;
  4. Process product models with CAM tools and CNC machines.

 


Overview of Learning Activities

 

Learning activities will include reviewing pre-recorded lectures, and participating in group based interactive in-class discussion and practical laboratory sessions.

In the discussion you will develop academic skills such as analytical reading and professional presentation. In order to develop your knowledge and skills, you will be expected to participate in interactive discussions and to critically engage with the weekly reading materials.

In lab sessions, you will be working in teams on practical projects which involve both design and manufacturing processes. 


Overview of Learning Resources

You are expected to have access to computing facility for completing some computational assignments and familiarisation of use of computers in office environment.
