ADVANCED MANUFACTURING PROCESS
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
 Describe the principles and operations of advanced manufacturing processes.
 Select the most appropriate process for a given product design, application requirements and cost constraint.
 Identify the principles of non-traditional manufacturing system.
 Work cooperatively in groups to complete the assigned project.
Advanced manufacturing processes are often used to machine or produce products that are made of hard materials, tough super alloys, ceramics, and composites. Another reason for choosing these methods is because the features of the product to be machined are often difficult or impossible to be performed using traditional methods and is not economical. Advanced manufacturing processes utilize electrical, chemical, and optimal sources of energy to form geometry through subtractive, additive, continuous or net shape mechanism. This course will provide the students with the fundamentals and understanding of the advanced manufacturing processes principle utilized in industries.
