INTRODUCTION TO QUALITY ASSURANCE
This course defines the role of quality in an industrial environment. Topics include the use of quality management techniques, quality philosophies, process development, techniques used for evaluation, approaches used on continuous operations, methods used to control quality, the responsibility of quality assurance during engineering, and manufacturing, and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) series of standards.
ETI 1622. CONCEPTS OF LEAN MANUFACTURING AND SIX SIGMA.
CONCEPTS OF LEAN MANUFACTURING AND SIX SIGMA
Prerequisite: ETI 1110
This course introduces the basic principles and theories of lean manufacturing. Lean manufacturing involves identifying and eliminating non-value-adding activities in design, production, and supply chain management. The coverage includes topics related to cost reduction, work-free manufacturing, continuous flow, kaizen, the 5s’s, value stream mapping, modular manufacturing, and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
ETI 1644. PRODUCTION AND INVENTORY CONTROL.
PRODUCTION AND INVENTORY CONTROL
In this course, students will learn how to use manufacturing planning and control systems to coordinate material, labor, capacity and other resources to optimize manufacturing operations. Students also learn the key features of automated systems that can be used to manage the supply chain process. The course will cover production planning and inventory control including scheduling, MRP, and capacity planning.
ETI 1701. INDUSTRIAL SAFETY.
This course focuses on the theories and principles of occupational safety and health in a practical and useful real world job related setting. The major topics include the occupational safety and health administration (OSHA) compliance, safety standards, code enforcement, ergonomic hazards, mechanical hazards, falling, lifting, electrical hazards, fire hazards, industrial hygiene, radiation, noise, emergencies, and environmental safety.
ETI 2420. MANUFACTURING MATERIALS AND PROCESSES.
MANUFACTURING MATERIALS AND PROCESSES
