Industrial and Systems Engineering

Information Technology Laboratory.The laboratory has the state-of-the-art client/server network with Apache and WebLogic application servers, database, and middleware. This lab is mainly used for research, teaching, and practice in the logistics of supply chain, warehousing, and distribution systems. The lab is equipped with simulation modeling software G2, e-score, and ReThink, as well as SAP's IDES training system. The IT research in the lab includes operations at marine terminals, C/S transaction processing middleware design, and military ammunition supply chain operations among others.

Manufacturing Automation Laboratory.The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment in CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) and manufacturing automation equipment. It includes full-scale CNC milling machines; a CNC lathe; Puma, Mitsubishi, and Seiko robots; an automated storage and retrieval system; a material handling carousel; and a wide arrangement of CAD software, including IDEAS and MASTERCAM. CAD stations and graphics terminals also are available.

Manufacturing Information Systems Laboratory.This laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art programmable logic controllers and microcontrollers for controlling manufacturing processes, as well as binary and analog sensors for monitoring manufacturing processes, and bar code equipment and other automatic data acquisition devices used in manufacturing plants. State-of-the-art microcomputers with database management tools and data acquisition software are networked with programmable controllers to emulate supervisory control and data acquisitions systems in a factory environment.

Manufacturing Processing Laboratory.Basic machine tools such as turning, milling, drilling, grinding, and measuring machines are available to help the student become familiar with metal-processing operations. The equipment also is used to perform laboratory experiments in heat treatment, chip formation, tool life, cutting forces, temperature, chip metallurgy, and power consumption.

Microcomputer Laboratory.This laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art microcomputers, printers, and visual aids. The lab has a large number of simulation software, such as Arena, LINDO, and Stratgraphics among others, used in a number of courses. It has software for simulation, optimization, quality control, plant layout, production control, statistical analysis, and text processing. The computers are connected to a universitywide network.

Quality and Reliability Engineering Laboratory.This laboratory allows students to have hands-on experience in actual methods of quality control and reliability engineering. A variety of software for control charts, sampling plans, and design of experiments is available. The laboratory has a wide array of materials testing equipment, roundness measurement equipment, temperature chambers, vibration tests, and voltage stressing equipment. Labview and Statgraphics software are available for students' use.
