Integrated manufacturing systems
Study: Master in Industrial Mechanical (265)

Coordinating teacher: CANTERO GUISANDEZ, JOSE LUIS

Department assigned to the subject: Department of Mechanical Engineering

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Students are expected to have completed
Subjects where they get basic knowledge about manufacturing and production systems and processes (subject Production and Manufacturing Systems).
Skills that will gets by the student - Knowledge and ability to apply strategies of integrated manufacturing CIM, (Computer Integrated Manufacturing) to the design of manufacturing systems. - Reinforce knowledge of systems and mechanical manufacturing processes. Know relationships between process design, functionality of the piece and features of advanced materials. Integration of the aspects that include production systems. Learn advanced modeling techniques of forming processes. Learning outcomes get by the student: - Get enough approach for developing tasks about component design taking into account the manufacturing process thereof. - Understanding of the fundamental aspects presents in the manufacturing systems based on integrated manufacturing strategies.
