ADM 106 : Quality Control Concepts

This course provides an overview of the materials and processes and quality assurance topics used in commercial and specialized manufacturing products. Emphasis is placed on process evaluation techniques that can be extrapolated to other system areas such as new products and new technology. Emphasis is also placed on quality assurance including the history of the quality movement, group problem solving, and statistical methods such as statistical process control (SPC), process capability studies, and the concepts associated with lean manufacturing.

ADM 116 : Introduction to CATIA

Introduction to parametric, three-dimensional modeling using CATIA (v5 or 6). Focus on how to navigate within this software, how to create three-dimensional solid models using industry best practices, and then how to create and manipulate assemblies made from these parts. Learn the process of designing models with CATIA from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production. Upon completion of this course you will have acquired the skills to confidently work with CATIA. Gain an understanding of the parametric design philosophy of CATIA in this extensive hands-on course. It is expected that all new users of CATIA will require this course.

ADM 212 : Intermediate CATIA

Explores the techniques for using CATIA v5/6 to produce working level of engineering drawings. Detail and assembly drawings are created with attention focused on proper views, text, dimensions, tolerances, bills of material, borders and title blocks. Weldments, flat patterns and other special practices are also examined.

ADM 261 : Reverse Engineering

During this course students learn the process of quality control inspection of parts and uses of reverse engineering processes employing 3D printing, scanning, and Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM technologies). Emphasis is on using applicable software to produce 3D models or converting scanned images into 3D models; using CMM for parts inspection and generating points cloud for 3D modeling; interfacing generated models with reverse engineering methods.
