623-121 Engineering Drawing and Measurement
This self-paced course provides the foundation skills needed to interpret industrial blueprints and perform basic metrological measurements. Orthographic projection, pictorial drawings, sections, auxiliary views, dimensions and tolerances, title blocks, revisions, basic GD&T symbols, and similar topics are covered. Students will also examine measurement concepts as they apply to the manufacturing environment, and perform hands-on activities using precision measuring tools.
623-122 Ergonomics and Workplace Safety
The health and safety of employees within Industrial and Manufacturing facilities has been a major concern for industry across the country. How the physical tasks within a job duty are performed can impact the health of an employee. The setup of a manufacturing line, the process of material handling or the procedures to follow when working within a facility must be considered for safety and health. In Ergonomics and Workplace Safety you will identify factors that can lead to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), analyze and suggest improvements to job hazards on an employee's workstation, look at costs and benefits of ergonomic improvements and investigate accident reports for causes and problems related to work safety.
623-155 Statistical Process Control (SPC)
This course offers an in-depth exploration of the principles and applications of statistical process control. Specific subject areas covered include background, basic principles, variation, histograms, probability, variable and attribute control charts, and machine and process capability. Lectures will be supplemented with in-class exercises designed to make the concepts and their application more easily understandable. These individual and group activities will be drawn from the student workbooks and from additional materials to be distributed by the instructor.
623-160 Manufacturng Materials and Processes
A study is made of the various materials used in industry today and how those materials can be altered or worked to create a specifi c product. Various areas such as forming, casting, forging and machining are discussed.
623-165 Facilities Planning
This course covers the essential elements of plant layout and materials handling. Flow patterns, material handling requirements, equipment, and storage and retrieval methods are explored. The many factors affecting an effi cient facility lay outare examined, as are the decision-making tools for dealing with them. The course concludes with a group project, in which learners design an actual facility to satisfy given criteria. Each group will then present its design to the rest of the class for analysis and discussion.
623-166 Industry and Quality Control
This self-paced course is an overview of quality issues in the modern industrial environment. Topics include basic quality concepts, sampling and inspection, fundamentals of measurement, statistical tools, quality policies and costs, improvement projects, and comparisons of popular quality philosophies.
623-170 Industrial Organization and Structure
This course examines the structure of the modern manufacturing organization, and provides an overview of the interrelationship between the various functional departments and their activities. Historical background, management philosophy, planning and control requirements, labor, and human aspects of the organization are discussed.
623-192 Process Planning
A study is made of the principles, practices, and techniques of process planning. Using the part drawing, the student learns through systematic analysis to select the most practical and economical processes and to determine the properly sequenced series of operations to transform materials into useful products. The students also select the type of tooling and equipment needed in terms of materials, quantity, tolerances, and surface quality requirements.
623-196 Standards and+C1126 Regulations
This self-paced course provides an overview of state and federal standards and regulations governing workplace safety and the environment. Students will learn to recognize hazards and identify applicable regulations. Emphasis is on locating standards in the code of federal regulations (CFR), applying safety and environmental standards in the workplace, and interpreting material safety data sheets (MSDS).
