Course Description

Students will develop a general understanding of the production engineering function within industry. Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, process design, and fixture and a gage design will be introduced and explored through the application of machining processes. Students will also develop an understanding of sustainable manufacturing.


  • Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing
  • Workholding
  • Sustainable production
  • Metal cutting

Learning Outcomes

The student, upon completion of this course, will be able to:

  1. Interpret and specify dimensional and geometric tolerances.
  2. Select starting stock materials for machining
  3. Specify machining process parameters and equipment requirements
  4. Develop a workholding tool design (Machining fixtures and jigs).
  5. Design a gage for evaluating machined features
  6. Prepare routing sheets and operation sheets for machining
