Great Bay Community College Fundamentals of Composites Manufacturing (ACM210)

This course provides a study of topics fundamental to manufacturing, with major focus on quality assurance processes and statistical process control; production systems with a focus on lean processes; automated systems; and personal effectiveness skills including time management and adapting to change. An introduction to polymer chemistry and the physics of strength of materials and thermodynamics will provide understanding of concepts required for students working with composites manufacturing. Additional topics will be introduced, providing students a broad awareness of advanced manufacturing topics.
