The course will be taught in two segments. The first segment will introduce the fundamental topics. These will provide a common background for all of the students and for the second segment of the course. The second segment will focus on the analysis of specific processes. Students will examine and analyze representative products and determine the most cost effective set of processes that will produce the product. A manufacturing system design and analysis will be a typical output, carried out in group mini-projects.
