Industrial Systems Engineering
Integration of all aspects of a manufacturing enterprise using
computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) technologies.
Design, development and implementation of manufacturing
systems using project management techniques and team work.
This course emphasizes the integration of manufacturing
enterprise using computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM)
technologies. It employs CAD/CAM interface and other CIM
sub-systems, database management, facility layout, product
documentation, process planning, production planning and
control, Group technology, teamwork, and manufacturing
operations and management to bring about a students-
designed CIM-oriented enterprise.
In this course, the student will:
Develop an understanding of classical and state-of-the-art
production systems, control systems, management
technology, cost systems, and evaluation techniques.
Develop an understanding of computer-integrated
manufacturing (CIM) and its impact on productivity, product
cost, and quality.
Obtain an overview of computer technologies including
computers, database and data collection, networks,
machine control, etc, as they apply to factory management
and factory floor operations.
Describe the integration of manufacturing activities into a
Acquire sensitivity to human-factors related issues as they
affect decision making in the factory environment.

All reading assignments must be completed
according to the course schedule, and you
must be prepared for discussion of weekly
reading topics in class. In addition, you will
undertake outside readings of articles and
texts relevant to topics being discussed and
studied in class (see Reading Critiques,
below). Participation in class and team
discussions is part of your grade and this
will not work well if you have not kept up
with the readings.
There will be one midterm and one
final examination, which will cover
reading assignments, lectures,
classroom discussions. The midterm
examination will be announced at
least one week in advance, and will
occur as close as possible to the date
scheduled in the course outline.
