The 3560 square feet Boeing Automation Engineering Laboratory is informally subdivided to serve multiple instructional and support purposes:
- Application of Computer Technologies to Manufacturing Engineering (1290 Sq. ft.)
- Manufacturing and Processes Learning Enterprise (930 Sq. ft.)
- Lecture Discussion and basic computing (570 Sq. ft.)
The balance of the space is reserved for fork lift access (680 Sq. ft.) and supplies storage.
Area A, for Application of Computer Technologies to Manufacturing Engineering, is equipped with eight PC stations, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) lathe and milling machines, and a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system that incorporates conveyor, pallet, barcode reading, and robot capabilities. Software support includes MS Office, MasterCAM, AutoCAD, AML, MCL II, and Simfactory. Instructional courses using this area include Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Manufacturing Systems Design, Robotics, Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), and Advanced CAD/CAM.
Area B, for the Manufacturing and Processes Learning Enterprise includes machine tools, a mold injector, tool cabinets, a thermojet rapid prototype modelar, nondestructive test apparatus (e.q., magnetic particle, dye penetrant, eddy current and brittle coating inspection), and other items appropriate to product manufacture. Instructional courses using this area include Process Design and Manufacturing Engineering, Product Design, Senior Design, MAPLE Projects, and Quality Engineering.
Health and Safety Information- follow safety procedures and dress appropriately for lab (long sleeves, long pants and covered shoes).
