Computer Integrated Manufacturing

Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is a specialization course of the High School Curriculum of Project Lead The Way.  In CIM, students learn about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation.  Students use RoboCell to learn how to operate robotic arms and then use the Lynxmotion AL5D Robotic Arm in various operations.  Students use the VEX Robotics Kits to design, build, and test automated models including an automated transfer system and an assembly line.  Students use Autodesk Inventor and the Intelitek Benchmill 6000 CNC Milling Machine to manufacture small products.
