Course Overview

Computer Integrated Manufacturing, known as CIM, is the phrase used to describe the complete automation of a manufacturing plant, with all processes functioning under computer control and digital information tying them together. It was promoted by machine tool manufacturers in the 1980’s and the Society for Manufacturing Engineers (CASA/SME). Quite often it was mistaken for the concept of a “lights out” factory. It includes CAD/CAM, computer aided design/computer – aided manufacturing, CAPP, computer –aided process planning, CNC, computer numerical control machine tools, DNC, direct numerical control machine tools, FMS, flexible machining systems, ASRS, automated storage and retrieval systems, AGV, automated guided vehicles, use of robotics and automated conveyance, computerized scheduling and production control, and a business system integrated by a common data base. Knowledge on these things is highly essential for those engineering students who choose their career in manufacturing.

The video lecture series on computer integrated manufacturing is an attempt to give through state of art review of subject covering fundamentals and problems. This would enhance the comprehensive knowledge of students studying advanced manufacturing systems. Fundamentals of CAD/CAM, Robotics and Factory physics would be non-essential prerequisite for undergraduate students.
