Computer Integrated Manufacturing

COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING - Project Lead the Way®  (STEM Pathway)
(Robotics and Automation)
Credit: 1
How are things made? What processes go into creating products? How has automation changed manufacturing? You will be presented with design problems that require the use of SolidWorks to develop solutions.  Students will learn to  use CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machinery to produce your design and learn to program the robot to produce your product in quantity. Utilizes project/problem base learning. Students will design, create, and program robotic devices. Four new software applications are learned in this course.  The following are expected outcomes:

·         Learn how things are made.
·         Learn to use:
                      o   SolidWorks Software
                      o   CNC Mills
                      o   Process Control Modules
                      o   Robotic Arms
·         Learn to speak the language of machines:
                     o   Write programs which control a mill to machine a part
                     o   Design the control of a process and program a PLC to manage it
                     o   Write the code which controls a robot arm to do a task
