In honor of National Manufacturing Week, the Engineering Pathway highlights Manufacturing Engineering Education in September. Check out our Manufacturing Engineering Education Disciplinary Community and related manufacturing engineering educational resources, such as NIST’s Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory (MEL) or the Manufacturing Video Library.
Find out How Everyday Things are Made with courseware hosted by Stanford’s Alliance for Innovative Manufacturing. This interactive courseware includes images, online tours and videos, as well as quizzes. Cases include airplanes, motorcycles, engines, cars, candy, glass bottles, plastic bottles, plastic caps, food ontainers, candy packaging, bottling drinks and clothing. Check out how “jelly beans” are made.
The People, Products and Strategies courseware was designed to assist engineering and business students in visualizing and understanding the fundamental concepts that govern today’s new product development and manufacturing strategies within successful industry companies – new product development, various functional roles of people and the principles, and practice and strategies that drive today’s businesses. The strategies emphasized include the use of crossfunctional teams, concurrent engineering, design for manufacturing and design for environment, DFM, DFA, green design.
