3315. Manufacturing 4P: People, Planet, Process & Profit

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: None.

Grading Basis: Graded

Manufacturing has changed dramatically over time. The focus has changed due to increased concerns for the safety of their workers and designs to avoid overuse injuries; environmental concerns to minimize pollution and reduce material use and increase recycling; new fabrication techniques that must be considered and their impact on quality, and the profitability resulting from the interaction of all of these variables. This course will discuss how the four Ps are impacted as the product progresses from design through production.
