The manufacturing field continues to become more complex brought

about principally by global competition, cost and profitability pressure,
and rapidly advancing technology. Flexible manufacturing cells and
systems represent an avenue of change for manufacturers that helps to
bridge the gap between technology, competition, and profitability
through a highly specialized and focus approach to manufacturing
This course covers the diverse topics of Flexible Manufacturing
system (FMS). Fundamental concepts and elements of FMS with
concentration on FMS implementation will be the core of our course.
The concept of flexible automation evolved through efforts to more
efficiently and effectively utilize and control assets, information, and
resources in a changing economic climate. Automated cells an systems
have grown from concept to reality in light of the installed systems
currently in place throughout the United States, Japan, and Europe. And
they are projected to grow dramatically over the next several years as
manufacturers strive to become more comfortable with the increasing
installed base of cells and systems and the dynamic forces of
competitiveness, productivity, and profitability.

Course Objectives:
The course serves as an introduction to the modern methods of
manufacturing. Its objectives are: (i) to expose the student to the
different types of manufacturing available today such as the Special
Manufacturing System, the Manufacturing Cell, and the Flexible
Manufacturing System (FMS), (ii) to learn the fundamentals of computer
assisted numerical control programming and programming languages, (iii)
the automated flow lines, (iv) the common CAD/CAM data base
organized to serve both design and manufacturing, and (v) to practice the
PLC control devices and CNC operation skills.
