ME 6222: Manufacturing Processes and Systems
Offered Every Fall
|Prerequisites:||ME 4210 or equivalent; or with the consent of the instructor|
|Catalog Description:||Materials processing analysis and selection. Manufacturing systems design. Economic analysis.|
|Textbooks:||George Tlusty, Jiri Tlusty, Manufacturing Processes and Equipment, 1st Edition, Addison-Wesley, 1999.|
|Goals:||To provide graduate students with an integrated treatment of the analysis of traditional and non-traditional manufacturing processes, their selection and planning, within an economic framework.|
The course will be taught in two segments. The first segment will introduce the fundamental topics. These will provide a common background for all of the students and for the second segment of the course.
The second segment will focus on specific processes and products. A number of products, which undergo multiple manufacturing processes, will form the centerpieces of the second segment. These topics will be introduced by the instructors. Students will examine and analyze the products and determine the most cost effective set of processes that will produce the product. A manufacturing system design and analysis will be a typical output (mini-project).
