Operation Management B TECH 7TH SEMESTER (MECHANICAL ENGINEERING) Credits and Hours:
Teaching Scheme Hours/week Marks Theory 4 100 Practical 2 50 Total 6 150 Credit 5

Objective of the Course: (Theory without practice is futile and

.practice without theory is sterile

To help students to learn to select and use different measuring instruments for measuring the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of different mechanical components. To help students to learn how to measure various parameters/quantities associated with the practical jobs by selecting proper instruments and to take corrective action for minimizing and removing deviations. To ingrain the consciousness in students to calibrate the measuring instruments as per National and International standards for precise measurement of the quantity.

D. Instructional Method and Pedagogy:

Assignments based on course content will be given to the students at the end of each unit/topic and will be evaluated at regular interval. It carries a weightage of 5 Marks as a part of internal theory evaluation.

Surprise tests/Quizzes/Seminar will be conducted which carries 5 Marks as a part of internal theory evaluation. The course includes a laboratory, where students have an opportunity to build an appreciation for the concepts being taught in lectures. Experiments/Tutorials related to course content will be carried out in the laboratory. In the lectures and laboratory discipline and behavior will be observed strictly. Industrial Visits will be organized for students to explore industrial facilities. Students are required to prepare a report on industrial visit and submit as a part of assignment.

E. Students Learning Outcomes:

Students will be able to understand importance of precise measurement and role of accuracy in manufacture industries. Students will be able to execute statistical analysis of the measured data. Students will be able to understand how different measurements and properties are important for further analysis of many mechanical systems and subjects like Machine Design, Production and Manufacturing, Industrial Engg., Fluid power engg.etc.
