Welcome to the Manufacturing Systems Engineering module.

This course will last four weeks and will be delivered live via Webex sessions. This module introduces you to modern manufacturing with three areas of emphasis: manufacturing processes, manufacturing systems and manufacturing management. The course exposes you to integration of engineering and management disciplines for determining manufacturing rate, cost, quality and flexibility. Topics includes design for manual and automated work-cells, quality, manufacturing systems, process planning and cell layout, and industrial management.

An introduction to the application of digital technologies will also be given.

The course will offer a foundation in Manufacturing Systems Engineering approaches, and will incorporate case studies relevant to the Naval Ships or wider BAE systems context.
