This course integrates the theory and knowledge gained from MANF3100, 3510 and 4610 into the theory and practice of designing and analysing automated and computer-integrated manufacturing systems. The design of such systems is complex and needs to consider multiple factors and design drivers, including the nature and characteristics of the product, the market, the manufacturing breadth and scope of the organisation, the appropriate level of manufacturing flexibility, manufacturing and materials handling technology as well as demographic characteristics such as regional workforce skills and hourly pay rates and environmental factors. The performance of such systems needs to be understood in the early stages of concurrent product-process design and continuously adapted and improved as the needs and requirements change throughout the product (and process) life cycle.
