Instrumentation and Measurements in Manufacturing


Course Syllabus


Course Objectives:


Instrumentation is used to acquire data from representative systems that are relevant t
o modern
manufacturing processes. Process control instrumentation is also studied. Topics include shop floor
data collection, electronic sensors and electromechanical actuators. Computer
-
based data acquisition
and motion control are emphasized.


Learnin
g Objectives:



Describe the types and roles of sensors and measurements in manufacturing



Develop simple applications of stepper motors for motion control in a factory setting



Demonstrate understanding of the structure of closed
-
loop control systems and the
different
strategies used for the automatic control of simple systems


Prerequisites:


ISAT 211 and ISAT 253 (formerly 300) or
permission of instructor
.


Text:



Required readings will be distributed or placed on reserve in the CISAT Laibrary.

Assigned Work:


All homework and laboratory reports must be handed in on the day they are due. All submitted work
should be neat and legible. Late assignments will be reduced 20% of the maxim
um grade for each
day late. Only in extraordinary circumstances, such as death in the immediate family, documented

serious illness, etc., can work be handed in late without penalty or omitted when computing the final
grade. You must attend the lab period

in order to receive a grade for the corresponding lab report.


Laboratory Reports:

Reports must be well organized, complete, printed and grammatically correct (See attached
instructions). Reports must be prepared using a word processor. Graphs and tab
les should be of
publishable quality. Include a cover page which contains the course name, the title of the
experiment, the authors, the name of the instructior and the date submitted. An effective way to
organize your report is to divide it into section
s answering the following questions:

1.

Introduction
. What were the objectives, theory and applications for the experiment and
measurements?

2.

Materials and method.

How did you conduct the experiment?

3.

Results.

What did you measure and how did you reduce the
data to obtain the results?

4.

Discussion and conclusions.

What do the results and findings mean? Are there any trends?
What are the sources of errors if any? How do results compare to expectations?

5.

References
. Which refereces did you use in preparing fo
r the experiment, reducing the data
and writing the report?

ISAT 303 Laboratory Report Format


Reports must be well organized, complete
, printed and grammatically correct. Graphs and tables
should be of publishable quality. Include a cover page, which contains the course name, the title
of the experiment, the authors, the name of the instructor and the date submitted. An effective
way
to organize your report is to divide it into sections answering key questions as follows:

1.

Introduction
. What were the objectives and background material for the experiment?

2.

Materials and method.

What did you use to perform the experiment? How did you
co
nduct the experiment?

3.

Results.

What did you measure? How did you reduce the data and obtain calculated
results?

4.

Discussion and conclusions.

What do the results and findings mean?

5.

References
. Which references did you use in preparing for the experiment,

reducing the
data and writing the report?

The narrative part of the group report should be must be prepared using a word processor (2 to 4
pages) and should include the following sections:



I.

Introduction


In this section, introduce the experiment on h
and, summarizes any essential background
materials, particularly theory and operation of any sensors used.


II.

Materials and method


Summarize the materials used and the approach you used in conducting the experiment.


III.

Results and Analysis


Organize
your data in tabular form (use of Excel is recommended) to show clearly all
information pertinent to the results to be calculated. Include any calculations and other
analyses. Show sample calculations. A printout of your spreadsheet (if used) should be
included. Charts and graphs will help you communicate your findings


IV.

Discussion and Conclusions


Discuss the nature and meaning of your results and how well you achieved your objectives.
Were there any problems? Do the results seem to be reasonable
? What are the sources of
errors if any? How do results compare to expectations?What did you learn from the
experiment? How would you improve the way you conducted the experiment or performed
the analysis? Do you think the experiment met your technical

expectations and learning
objectives?


V.

References


List all of the references you used in , including textbooks, class or project handouts in
alphabetical order. Please follow a uniform citation style. The following are good
examples:
