Expertrating Online Manufacturing Applications Management Course Coverage (6 weeks program)

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

The first lesson will begin by exploring the essential area of manufacturing strategy. This lesson will consider a firm as a system, look at a few key strategic terms, and talk about market analysis. Then, it will review the background of manufacturing strategy and discuss its foundation. And finally, it will finish up by identifying what's involved in developing and implementing a manufacturing strategy and investigating strategic choices.

Friday - Lesson 02

If there's one area that's caused problems for manufacturers over the years, it's forecasting. Today’s lesson will start with the characteristics of forecasting and will see how you can use a qualitative, quantitative, or a hybrid approach that follows certain types of rules. Then, this lesson will discuss the requirements for developing and implementing a sound forecast, exploring how to forecast new products. The lesson will finish by examining various ways to control your forecasts.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

Now that you have a good understanding of manufacturing strategy and demand forecasting, you need to perform manufacturing planning. Planning is a pervasive activity. It gives rise to just about everything. Today’s lesson will talk about how planning and control work together, discuss the nature of manufacturing planning, and explore a few planning techniques, including Gantt charts and the network diagram scheduling method.

Friday - Lesson 04

Purchasing employees contribute greatly to the success of manufacturing organizations. Every dollar saved by purchasing equals a dollar of profit. It's too bad that many firms don't realize the value of purchasing. They view it as a clerical function—simply a matter of sending purchase orders to suppliers. This lesson will take a whirlwind tour through the world of purchasing. It will briefly discuss the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), look at the way for purchasing to be proactive instead of reactive, and explore the seven steps of the purchasing cycle.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

This lesson will discuss lean manufacturing. This topic has an interesting history. It originally came from Henry Ford's operations in the United States in the early 1900s. Japanese industry popularized it in the 1970s, and it was later introduced in the Western world as just-in-time (JIT) during the early 1980s. By the early 1990s, the terms lean production or lean manufacturing began to appear. Few firms use the JIT label these days. So, lean manufacturing it is. This lesson will discuss its benefits and the various elements of it, starting with good housekeeping (5S) and concluding with quality at the source. After that, the lesson will end with a discussion on how to implement lean manufacturing.

Friday - Lesson 06

Someone once called production and inventory control (P & IC) "organized foresight plus corrective hindsight." It begins with receipt of a sales order and ends with delivery to the customer. It requires knowledge of what should happen and what did happen. For many years, P & IC personnel have played a valuable role in completing manufacturing schedules and satisfying customers. So, today’s lesson will examine the primary duties of P & IC: master production scheduling, shop floor scheduling, production activity control, material requirements planning, and inventory management.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

Of all the concepts discussed so far, none is more important than capacity. After all, if you don't have sufficient capacity, you won't manufacture much! This lesson will start out with an overview of capacity and define a few terms, including design and effective capacity, and actual output. It will explore how rough-cut capacity planning and capacity requirements planning (CRP) help measure available capacity. Then the lesson will move on and examine a few capacity-use strategies as they relate to customer demand, technology, and other variables. And it will finish up by discussing three essential tools to help with capacity management: break-even analysis, decision trees, and decision theory.

Friday - Lesson 08

Today’s lesson will begin with a three-part discussion on how engineering and manufacturing work together. Manufacturing engineering brings a certain level of sophistication to a production environment. This lesson will take a tour through the manufacturing engineering function, starting with its history, its relationship with other departments, and its major functions. Then, it will explore the essential activity of process planning and review the various elements. This lesson will also examine key manufacturing engineering focus areas including computer-aided process planning (CAPP), value analysis, design for manufacturability (DFM), concurrent engineering (CE), rapid prototyping, and expert systems.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

Since the entire last lesson was spent on discussing manufacturing engineering, it will be fair that equal time is also given to industrial engineering (IE). IE joins people, machines, materials, and information to bring efficiency and effectiveness to a production operation. IE views human beings as a vital component of a system. Today’s lesson will start out with a brief overview and history of industrial engineering. Next, it will discuss work measurement and explore ways to develop work standards. In this lesson it will be determined how earned value performance measurement helps you control costs and performance. Then, the lesson will wrap things up by looking at flowcharts and examining their benefits.

Friday - Lesson 10

This lesson will finish up trilogy on engineering by tackling quality engineering. Quality engineers are responsible for assuring a high performing, quality system. To achieve this, they need a good understanding of quality costs, Six Sigma, and statistical process control (SPC), including its main components, which are run charts, control charts, and process capability. Today’s lesson will discuss each of these topics.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Manufacturing companies must know the ins and outs of physical transportation (otherwise known as traffic or logistics). Since your company either directly or indirectly pays for transportation, you need a good command of the basics. This lesson will start out today with an overview of the logistics system and briefly review each element. Then, it will move on to discuss warehousing and examine many transportation concepts such as tracing, carrier modes and types, and the receiving process.

Friday - Lesson 12

The topic for this last lesson is productivity. Quality and productivity form a potent one-two punch for manufacturers. When both are present to the right degree, your chances for success are high. Like quality, the journey for productivity improvement is never-ending. This lesson will begin with an overview of productivity. It will look at the basic productivity calculation, talk about historical global productivity trends, and examine the experience curve.
