The CYBERMAN Education Page is focused on providing manufacturing-related
educational materials. The materials may be used to supplement existing
manufacturing courses or may assist students/engineers in self study. The
CYBERMAN Education Page consists of three sections:
The CYBERMAN Education Page has been developed and is being maintained
by the department of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan Technological University.
Comments and additional links for primers are welcomed.
CYBERMAN Primers: Writeups that provide individuals with basic knowledge
and insights on manufacturing-related topics. The primers include tutorial
type information, graphics, and are updated periodically. Students accessing
these primers may also make use of listings of relevant research papers
and reference texts as well as links to related Web sites for further information.
Software Testbeds: As part of their reseach activities several universities
have developed software tools to simulate manufacturing process behavior
and attack other manufacturing-related problems. These WWW-based testbeds
include instructions on their use as well as sample testbed inputs and
outputs. It is anticipated that students may use the testbeds and tutorials
as part of their manufacturing course work.
CYBERMAN Education Chat Room: The chat room provides a forum for students
and engineers to receive answers to their questions about manufacturing-related
topics. It is hoped that the chat room will provide an excellent opportunity
for individuals to hold online discussions about manufacturing.
