Manufacturing Operations Spreadsheets is a brief summary of important planning and operating calculations used in manufacturing systems with manual and automated assembly and machining processes.
This is a 5 Professional Development Hour (PDH) online course having a series of inputs of manufacturing data and solved output equations in an Excel format. The student will type numerical values for production parameters and Excel will perform the calculations. For example, the proposed, cost of a product is typed into labeled input cells and the quantity to be produced will be calculated automatically for any desired profit.
Any input parameter can be found for a target value of an Excel calculated item by using the “Goal Seek” tool in Excel.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
