Courses and Descriptions

ENGI-1018Manufacturing Basics

Divided into two modules, this course serves as a general introduction to manufacturing principles and methods. Students will learn the production processes and skills required to manufacture a product by building a stirling engine in a modern factory environment. The procedures demonstrated include Lean, 5S, kanban shop floor scheduling, statistical process control (SPC), dimensional inspection reports (DIR), operation sheets, bills of material (BOM), and engineering drawings. The manufacturing processes used are: CNC milling, CNC turning, punch press operation, manual milling, drilling and turning, anodizing, burnishing, rapid prototyping, quick change tooling, jigs and fixtures. Inspections will be accomplished with the use of surface roughness measuring tools, micrometers, verniers, co-ordinate measuring machines, and an optical comparator. This is a unique opportunity to not just talk about manufacturing concepts like JIT, lean, 5S SPC, and operation instructions but to use them in a world class facility. Each operation is fully documented with the use of operation and process instructions with all parts having engineered drawings with appropriate tolerances.
