Accomplishment Extent: Objective Met (10/10)
A. Manufacturing companies use a variety of automated machinery controlled by robotic and programmable controllers for repetitive and heavy industrial settings. The Fanuc robots donated by Sony Corportation were used in pick-and-place and industrial application of carbon spraying for CRT manufacturing. The footprint and robotic armature is similar to the three robots. The addition of actuators can change the function of them in a particular business or industry setting. In addition to the three Fanuc robots, the following items and resources were donated with them: curriculum units, operational and service manuals, and related workbooks tied to the mechanical operation of the robots. A service technician for Sony is will to come up when the robots are in place and assist us in bringing the unit(s) on line and show us how they work. Resources required for installation of robots: the physical placement including a safety cage with electrial lockouts when robot is in operation, the electricity for operation, and the time for the robots to be cycled periodically through maintenance program when not being used in a teaching or production operation. These robots will assist in the modification of the High Technology 1-year certificate and the development of a two-year degree in Industrial Technology where students could take focus classes in areas such as Construction, Manufacturing, Electronics, Automotive, Design, and either apply for a work-related position in the field where the job description requires experience in several areas or transfer to a four-year degree program which has an industrial technology B.S. degree (typical options are Management, Technical or Teaching). B. Despite some initial technical issues, this goal was accomplished. I would rate this a 7 due to the initial problems. C. Erickson-Master CAM contract trained 6 employees. Curriculum used was MFG242. Erickson-Solid Works contracted to train 25 employees. Curriculum used was MET121. Pro-Tool - Statistical Process Control contracted to train 8 employees. Curriculum used was MFG230. D. Steps were taken to assess need, build a budget and revise the curriculum to 172 hours of training. Industry advised that there is a huge need for licensed drivers. Presently the program is on hold until Spring Term 2006. Rated accomplishment of objective - 5.
Assessment Tools Used:
A. PC Microprocessor; Sony donations of robots for collaborative curriculum development in emerging technologies. We have in possession three $150,000 robots to use for this training.
