Course Description:

This course introduces students to the manufacturing processes through an exploration of the basics of production. Students will explore the types of machining, manufacturing planning, production control, and product distribution and will learn the product life cycle from conception through distribution. The course focuses on the technologies used in production processes, including basic power systems, energy transfer systems, machine operation, and control. Upon completion, students will have the opportunity to earn the Manufacturing Processes and Production Certification, and the Maintenance Awareness Certification through the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC). Prerequisite: successful completion of Principles of Manufacturing or at least one year of manufacturing experience required.

Essential Objectives:

1. Identify the stages of production, including resources and processes in creating products.
2. Explain the key elements of machine shop theory and safe practices.
3. Identify the tools, equipment, and practices of the manufacturing industry.
4. Recognize the types of production and materials used in manufacturing.
5. Explain the key elements of machine tooling and machine operations.
6. Describe the mechanical principles of manufacturing.
7. Explain the key elements of mechanical linkages and their functions.
8. Describe the key elements of the equipment procedures, machine tooling, and machine operations.
9. Describe the key elements of production workflow, production planning, and production control.
10. Describe the role of chemicals and fossil fuels in the production of products.
11. Identify relevant manufacturing tools, tool safety, and maintenance.
12. Demonstrate knowledge of the systems used in manufacturing, including electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic systems.

Methods:

This course is a Flex Course - students will work at their own pace to complete course objectives by the end of the term. Contact a CCV advisor for more information about this format.

Students will work with materials and resources included in both the Canvas Page for this course and the online MSSC CPT Units.

Evaluation Criteria:

Course Evaluation Criteria

  • 25% Mid-Term Assessment (CPT Module 1 Safety Assessment)
  • 25% Final Assessment (CPT Module 2 Quality Assessment)
  • 25% Average of MSSC online Quizzes
  • 25% Completion of Online assignments

Note: All Canvas Discussions and related assignments must be completed by 12-15-2020. MSSC Assessments have until 12-20-2020 to be completed due to the 72 Hour wait period to take a MSSC Assessment via Proctor U. Work not completed by the stated due dates will receive a score of Zero unless previous arrangements have been made between the student, the applicable Student CCV Coordinator and the course Instructor.

Grading Criteria:

Only letter grades will be used in this course. See letter descriptions below:

A+ through A-: For any work to receive an "A," it must clearly be exceptional or outstanding work. It must demonstrate keen insight and original thinking. It must not only demonstrate full understanding of the topic or issues addressed, but it must also provide a critical analysis of these. In addition, an "A" grade reflects a student's ability to clearly and thoughtfully articulate his or her learning.

B+ through B-: For any work to receive a "B," it must be good to excellent work. It must demonstrate strong originality, comprehension, critical thinking, and attention to detail. In addition, a "B" grade reflects a student's ability to clearly articulate his or her learning.

C+ through C-: For any work to receive a "C," it must meet the expectations of the assignment. It must demonstrate solid comprehension, critical thinking, and attention to detail. In addition, a "C" grade reflects a student's ability to adequately articulate his or her learning.

D+ through D-: For any work to receive a "D," it must marginally meet the expectations of the assignment. It demonstrates minimal comprehension, critical thinking, and attention to detail. In addition, a "D" grade may reflect a student's difficulty in articulating his or her learning.

F: Work that receives an "F" grade does not meet the expectations or objectives of the assignment. It demonstrates consistent problems with comprehension, organization, critical thinking, and supporting details. In addition, an "F" grade reflects a student's inability to articulate his or her learning. Students are strongly urged to discuss this grade with their instructor and advisor.

Textbooks:

Summer 2021 textbook data will be available on April 5. On that date a link will be available below that will take you to eCampus, CCV's bookstore. The information provided there will be for this course only. Please see this page for more information regarding the purchase of textbooks.

Attendance Policy:

Principles in Manufacturing is designed as a self-paced FLEX course. Attendance is initiated in the following ways:

  • submitting an assignment;
  • completing pre and post quizzes;
  • participating in discussions;
  • initiating contact with the instructor to ask a questions about the course content;
  • completing MSSC assessments;

Please note: In order to receive accommodations for disabilities in this course, students must make an appointment to see the Americans with Disabilities Coordinator in their site and bring documentation with them.

Please: Contact you CCV Student Coordinator should completing the course requirements by the end of the semester become an issue due to unforeseen circumstances or you feel a need to drop the course prior to the end of the semester. The CCV Student Coordinator will work with the course instructor and Student to determine a course of action.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.

Suggested Course Progression

This is a self-paced asynchronous course which means that students will be starting and progressing at different rates throughout the term. Once you feel like you have a strong handle on the material, and you have completed all of the assignments for the module, you should feel comfortable moving on, regardless of the pace, as long as you complete the course within the semester timeframe. If you are starting at the beginning of the term, you could spend one week on each module to successfully complete the course within the term. If you are starting 7 weeks into the course, you could spend one week covering two modules so that you complete the course successfully within the term.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities: CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.
