An overview of one of the fastest growing industries in the world
MANUFACTURING - the production of merchandise using
technology and machinery
Goals and Objectives
- To provide students with an adequate understanding
of manufacturing concepts, processes, and machinery in
order to help students succeed in future technology jobs.
- To allow students to have the knowledge required in real
life situations and problems.
- To further strengthen students’ interests in the

manufacturing on today’s society.
Harvard bioengieers invent a 3D printer
that prints living tissue
MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY -
Using tools and machinery...
along with technology...
to produce effective solutions to modern problems.
A Brief History
Printing press - mechanized printing
Why is manufacturing used?
But what does
it all mean today
into finished goods
to produce goods on a large scale
to transform raw materials

Computer Aided Design (CAD)
the use of computers to convert an initial idea into
a detailed engineering model
In this activity, your ability to use your
knowledge in real life situations will be evaluated.
You will break into groups of THREE and assign yourselves these roles:
PROJECT MANAGER: plans and coordinates the project
BUSINESS MANAGER: assesses costs and economic/environmental effect
PROJECT ENGINEER: decides process/procedure to carry out project
Your problem statement is located in one of your handouts.
I will be walking around the room to check on your progress.
