Objective The innovation of computers and their integration to the production systems have fundamentally changed the manufacturing processes used for decades. Productivity is increased and quality is improved, despite the fact that costs are reduced and the possibility to react quickly and flexibly to continuously changing market conditions is increased. Integration includes all stages from the design to the delivery of the product to the customer. Consequently, the knowledge and skills that will be acquired during this obligatory course are critical for the professional careers of the undergraduate industrial engineering students. Within this context, the objectives of this course are:
• To show students how computers can be integrated to every stages of the production
• To disseminate the knowledge related to the functioning of the components of modern automation systems to the students
• To develop the basic skills of the student necessary to use pneumatic and electro-pneumatic systems, sensors, industrial robots, computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools
• To provide to the students a general overview on how flexible, cellular and shop type manufacturing systems can be designed and planned by means of mathematical modeling and operations research solution method
