5461. Production Systems Engineering for Energy Efficient Manufacturing

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Open to graduate students only.

Grading Basis: Graded

Production Systems Engineering (PSE) is a branch of Engineering intended to uncover fundamental laws that govern manufacturing systems (e.g., serial production lines and assembly systems) and exploit them for the purposes of analysis, design, and management. Fundamental principles in PSE will be described along with numerous case studies in large volume industries (such as automotive, electronics, consumer productions, etc.). The material presented is based on first principles rather than on recipes. How to apply the PSE theory in analysis and control of manufacturing systems for energy efficient production will be covered. The PSE Toolbox and Simul8 will be used to facilitate the application of the theoretical material.
