MFG 110: Modern Manufacturing Techniques I

(2.0 credit hours)

Sample Syllabus
Sample Syllabus
This course provides students with experience in the use of precision measurement, modern manufacturing techniques and processes, and manufacturing nomenclature, as well as the maintenance of manufacturing equipment. Risk management and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations are stressed. American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards and statistical process control are introduced. Also covered are the techniques for tool layout and the use of hand tools and bench work, metal-cutting technology, metal-cutting saws, drilling machines, and computerized numerical control (CNC) mill and lathe machines. Speeds, feeds, depth of cuts and the production of parts from blueprints are integrated throughout the course. Hours: 13 lecture and 26 laboratory. Laboratory fee: $30. Usually offered in the fall and spring.

MFG 180: Computer-Aided Manufacturing

(3.0 credit hours)

Sample Syllabus
Sample Syllabus
Mastercam programming is used to produce machining instruction directly through Mastercam software or imported with a CAD (computer-aided drafting) file, such as Drawing Interchange Format (DXF), Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) and American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) data point, for the toolpath instructions of shape and diameter to manufacturing parts on routers, milling machines, lathes, electro-discharge machines and computerized numerical control (CNC) machines. Coded data programming (i.e., Fanuc, G-code and digitized files) is used to provide instructions for CNC cutting tools, servo and spindle drive systems, and direct numerical control (DNC). Concepts include tool path generation, fixturing and dust collection, tool selection, lubrication and cooling techniques and tool changing systems. Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards, preventive maintenance and servicing of numerical control machine tools are integrated. Hours: 26 lecture and 26 laboratory. Prerequisites: MTH 154 and MFG 110 or permission of the department head. Laboratory fee: $30. Usually offered in the spring.
MFG 200: Quality Management and Auditing

(2.0 credit hours)

Sample Syllabus
Sample Syllabus
This course covers the elements of a quality system, such as the terms, definitions, philosophy and strategies for implementation. The purpose of a quality audit, audit concepts and quality audit reporting are presented. The concept of continuous improvement is integral to every phase of the course. Hours: 26 lecture and 26 laboratory. Laboratory fee: $30. Usually offered in the spring.
MFG 210: Quality Controls and Statistical Measurement

(3.0 credit hours)

Sample Syllabus
Sample Syllabus
This course covers the concepts of quality control and quality improvement for both manufacturing and service businesses. These concepts are demonstrated within the framework of quality systems and methodologies such as ISO 9000 quality standards, Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing and the Baldridge National Quality Award. Included are both statistical and non-statistical techniques used for quality improvement such as process definition, process flow diagrams, data collection techniques, measurement techniques, causes of process variation, Pareto diagrams, histograms, cause and effect diagrams, control charts and process capability analysis. Techniques to effectively work in teams are also addressed. Hours: 26 lecture and 26 laboratory. Laboratory fee: $30. Usually offered in the fall.
