Manufacturing Systems (EAS435)


The course examines the relationship between design and manufacture in a business environment with the use of techniques which enhance the product quality and at the same time reduces manufacturing costs. Additionally, the organisation of manufacturing processes, the concepts underpinning Just In Time (JIT) and optimised production technology are discussed within the context of examining the skills and techniques required to manage and operate a manufacturing system.
