Manufacturing

The Manufacturing Cluster prepare students to plan, manage, and perform the processing of materials into intermediate or final products, and the related professional and technical support activities such as production planning and control, maintenance, and manufacturing/process engineering. The four pathways in this cluster develop fundamental technological literacy through reading the history, systems, and processes of manufacturing; apply their knowledge of computer aided design (CAD), MonuCAD (design operations for granite projects), computer numerical control (CNC), robotics, computer assisted manufacturing (CAM), programmable logic controllers (PLC), automated guided vehicles (AGV), and computer integrated manufacturing (CIM); Electrical Control Systems, PLCs, industrial wiring, fluid power and piping systems; Programmable Logic Controllers; and Robotics. Each area illustrates how businesses engage in the production of products beginning with pre-production activities and continuing through post-production activities.
