Course Description: This course is designed to address the key integration issues in manufacturing with the goal of providing the future engineers with a thorough understanding of computer integrated manufacturing (CIM). An in-depth and integrated coverage of computer aided design, computer aided process planning, computer aided manufacturing, production planning and scheduling, manufacturing system control, and shop floor control topics, as well as integration among them, are presented. The laboratory work includes product design, machining code generation, computer numerical control (CNC) machining, robot programming, programmable logic controller (PLC) programming, PC-based control, human machine interface (HMI) design, and radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. The labs will provide hands-on experience, which is the basis for understanding the topics conceptually covered in class. Lab hours will be scheduled during class hours and will be held in the MSA lab (BSE 0.226). Instructional Objectives: By the end of this course, the students will be able to 1. Explain basic concepts related to computer–aided applications in manufacturing 2. Apply fundamental equations to a variety of integrated/automated manufacturing applications 3. Implement CIM concepts using computer–aided software tools 4. Design and Develop control programs for various manufacturing equipment and Judge their effectiveness. The professor reserves the right to modify this course schedule over the course of the semester as deemed necessary in order to facilitate effective learning… E-mail: can.saygin@utsa.edu Fax: 210-456-6504 Office: EB 3.04.56
