Students learn how to collect data on a sample and calculate the mean, median and standard deviation. They also learn how these concepts relate to statistical sampling, tolerance and quality control. The training package includes statistical process control (SPC) software that allows students to collect and display measurement data in a graph or spreadsheet.
Students gain proficiency in reading mechanical drawings, in selecting the proper tools for inspecting parts and in preparing quality control/inspection reports.
Mechanical Measurement and Quality Control is part of the Foundations of Advanced Manufacturing series, which teaches the introductory skills essential for success in advanced manufacturing careers.
Foundations of Advanced Manufacturing is ideal for any engineering or automated manufacturing program, providing a thorough and engaging element of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education.
Mechanical Measurement and Quality Control includes everything you need for successful blended learning.
Through LearnMate‚Ñ¢, essential resources are provided for both students and teachers.
Students are always one click away from glossaries and help files available on each page.
Teachers have instant access to handouts, tips and detailed activity instructions.
