Introduces the concepts of Industry 4.0 and the key aspects that workers will need to be prepared for in the intelligent factory setting. Robotic automation, smart manufacturing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) concepts will be explored.
Expands on learner’s knowledge of Civil 3D by providing skills in surface creation, utilizing existing survey data and break lines generated with automatic linework generation tools, developing a clear understanding on how Civil 3D surfaces are generated, as a basis for future design. Learners will then work on establishing an alignment and profile to use in a corridor model that will aid them in generating a design surface that they can utilize as a useful tool (such as cutting cross sections, determining earthwork volumes, and generating plans that could be used during construction and bidding). Learners will also get introductory exposure to feature lines, grading objects, and utility tools within the Civil 3D software.
Builds on surveying concepts including these important skills: computations and field methods involved in traversing; area calculations; field work to collect information for survey maps and engineering designs, including control point creation and topographic surveys; and an overview of the global navigation satellite system.
Focuses on integration of a complete automated manufacturing cell. Typical components include programmable controllers, robot, sensors, drives, conveyors, pneumatics, hard automation, control wiring and vision systems. Students plan, wire, program, troubleshoot and develop an automated manufacturing process based on the “product” chosen by the group. All required programming and documentation for the entire automation system is required
Program drive parameters for a drive application. This course will teach students how to create a custom parameter group based upon drive applications. Throughout this course, the instructor will cover a range of topics from establishing communications with a PowerFlex 525 drive via a USB connection and Ethernet/IP network to test parameters of a PowerFlex 525 drive and control a drive in STUDIO 5000.
Explores construction management, estimating, and related safety information including important knowledge such as: basic estimating techniques (including quantity takeoff, trip times, cost estimation, and contract interpretation); construction management roles and responsibilities (scheduling, budget reviews, resource allocation, and stakeholder communication); and an overview of safety requirements on construction sites.
Provides an introduction to stormwater management and includes key areas of knowledge such as: the basic concepts of stormwater hydrology and treatment; the key design principles required with storm sewer systems, culverts, and detention/retention basins; and storm sewer plans (including related details and specifications required to create an engineering planset); and key design concepts to manage stormwater runoff during construction.
Introduces learners to water and sewer technology including key areas such as: understanding of the basics of drinking water and wastewater utility system planning; understanding the principals in the design of municipal water and sanitary sewer systems; watermain and sanitary sewer plans, details, and specifications for an engineering planset; and the testing of watermain and sanitary sewers as part of a construction project.
Introduces the concept of setting up and programming various safety devices including GuardMaster Smart sensors, Programmable safety relays and safety PLC’s, The course will focus on how to setup, program and integrate safety components into your automation project.
Organize and develop FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) applications. This course provides opportunities for learners to organize and develop FactoryTalk View SE applications. During class, learners will have the opportunity to practice the skills used to create/build graphic displays. Learners will learn how to configure alarms and security, trend data, and test their application using FactoryTalk View SE Client. Learners will also work with RSLinx Enterprise communications software
Continuation of SCADA Systems 1, learners will organize and develop FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) network/server-based application. Learners will have the opportunity to practice the skills needed to create/build detailed graphic displays, trend charts and data logs. Learners will learn how to configure alarms and set up system security, build data logs, and test their application using FactoryTalk View SE Network Distributed Application.
