Prerequisites and co-requisites
Introduction to flexible manufacturing and CIM; Flexible manufacturing cells (FMS); Flexible machining, assembly and inspection systems; Automatic Handling and Storage (ARSS); Auxiliary systems; Case study: Open CIM Software.
Familiarize students with CIM-Integrated Computer Fabrication technology, as well as the problems and advantages associated with it. Use and application of Open-CIM software in cases of industrial studies.
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
Analyze and characterize the operation of integrated manufacturing systems (CIM); identify a flexible manufacturing system (FMS); identify the importance of flexible machining, assembly and inspection systems; characterize an automatic storage system (ARSS); characterize a holding station; use of CIM modeling software.
Teaching methodologies and assessment
Theoretical and theoretical-practical classes using slide presentation, exercises and use of Open-CIM software. Assessment: The evaluation will be done by carrying out a work during the semester and by final exam. The grade of the work will have a weight of 40% in the final grade and the grade of the exam will have a weight of 60% in the final grade.
