Courses and Descriptions

INST-3003Manufacturing Systems Automation

Automation helps manufacturing companies remain competitive by reducing manufacturing costs, delivering products on time, and increasing product quality. In this post-graduate course, students will examine common automation components including programmable logic controls (PLCs), input/output (I/O) cards, analog-to-digital converters, solenoid valves, switches, motors, and sensors. Students will compare data collected using bar codes, radio frequency identification (RFID), and vision systems and identify data that determines overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Students will investigate if a current product or process is suitable for automation and analyze risks and return on investment. Finally, students will draft a roadmap to implement automation in stages.
