Rationale
Manufacturing processes converts raw material to finished product for customer usage. Customer is the key player in market and needs and desires of customer has increased the varieties and features in products. This has increased the complexities at almost all the stages of manufacturing. Performance of a product depends on its quality in terms of accuracy of size, shape and constraints/relation between its features. Conversion cost and time can be optimized by judicious usage of energy, motions, resources, time etc without affecting the quality desired by the customer.
Manual operations have limitations in terms of power, precision and repetitions. Recent techniques / electronics devices provide precision machine control compare to conventional machines. Objective of leaning this subject is to make aware the students about the advance manufacturing practices/methods being implemented at leading industries across the globe, which ultimately leads to more customer satisfaction in terms of low cast and high quality.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Explain role of computers and information technology in manufacturing systems.
ii. Develop an FMS (Flexible Manufacturing System) layout for given simple part family, using group technology concepts to and make proper grouping as per their attributes.
iii. Recognize use of robotics, programmable logic controllers, microcontrollers and recent advances in the field of manufacturing.
