272 Job Evaluation (2 cr.) P: IET 104
A survey of the basic principles and significance of job evaluation. An analysis of current practices and techniques used in job analysis, job descriptions, and job evaluation.
290 Experimental Design-Conventional Methods (3 cr.) P: IT 342 or IET 204, MATH K300.
An applications-oriented course for presenting the fundamental concepts and emphasizing the basic philosophy of problems, many from actual research work. For each type of experiment, the distinctions among the experiment, the design, and the analysis are emphasized.
291 Experimental Design-Taguchi Methods (3 cr.) P: IT 342 or IET 204, MATH K300.
An applications-oriented course in industrial problem solving utilizing the experimental design concepts of Genichi Taguchi. The Loss Function is emphasized along with the differentiation among system design, parameter design, and tolerance design. Actual case histories are used to explain and promote comprehension of orthogonal arrays, linear graphs, classification of characteristics and signal-to-noise ratio.
296 Industrial Technology Case Problems (2 cr.)
Application of theories developed in the several industrial technology courses to selected general case problems in order to provide practice in the integration of principles.
299 Industrial Engineering Technology (1-9 cr.)
Hours and subject matter to be arranged by staff. Course may be repeated for up to 9 credit hours.
300 Metrology for Quality Assurance (Class 2, Lab 2, 3 cr.) P: MATH M125 or consent of instructor.
An analysis of the basic principles of linear and geometric dimensional metrology. Topics include basic measuring instruments; mechanical, electronic, pneumatic, and optical measuring instruments; quality data acquisition systems; coordinate measuring machines; attribute gaging; geometric functional gaging; surface integrity determination; and geometric profile measurement.
310 Plant Layout and Material Handling (3 cr.) P: CGT 110 or equivalent, or permission of instructor.
A study and analysis of material flow in a manufacturing facility; material handling equipment; plant layout principles for manufacturing service, storage, and office areas; and industrial packaging techniques. Emphasis is on application to manufacturing problems.
354 Attribute and Variable Sampling (3 cr.) P: IT 342 or IET 204.
Survey single, double, sequential, variable, and continuous production sampling plans. It includes the calculation and plotting of OC and AOQ curves and determining the economic sampling number. Also includes the use of Dodge Romig, MIL STD 105, and MIL STD 414 tables.
364 Total Quality Control (3 cr.)
The course is aimed at determining customer needs and wants and interpreting these into design during production, follow-up on field performance, and feeding back quality information to further improve the quality system.
451 Monetary Analysis for Industrial Decisions (Class 2, Lab 2, or Class 3, 3 cr.) Not open to students who have had IET 250.
An introduction to the time value of money and how it relates to capital investments, equipment replacement, production cost, and various engineering technology alternatives.
Most academic programs require a working knowledge of algebra. OLS courses previously carried the SPV prefix. CGT department courses previously carried the TG (Technical Graphics) prefix Following each course number and title, the number of hours of credit given for each course is indicated in parentheses. These abbreviations are also used in the descriptions:
"Recit." refers to a problem-solving, Recitation session. "P" refers to the course Prerequisite(s) (other courses that must be successfully completed prior to enrollment). "C" refers to the course Corequisite(s) (other courses which must be enrolled in during the same academic sessions). "R" refers to course Recommendation(s) prior to enrollment, but are not necessary for enrollment.
