An Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Teaching Artificial Intelligence and Manufacturing

Global Competition has played a major role in the awakening of US industry to the need to improve the understanding and control of their manufacturing processes. Hence, many universities in the US have in recent years developed manufacturing laboratories. One of these is the Oakland University School of Engineering and Computer Science's Artificial Intelligence and Manufacturing (AIM) Laboratory. Seed funding for the AIM Laboratory was provided by the National Science Foundation's Instrumentation and Laboratory Improvement (ILI) Program. Additional funds and equipment were provided by Fanuc Robotics N.A. Inc., Siemens Energy and Automation Inc. and Carnegie Group Inc. The AIM Laboratory is an interdisciplinary project proposed and developed by engineering and computer science faculty from Oakland University's Electrical and Systems Engineering Dept. and its Computer Science and Engineering Dept. Its purpose is to provide facilities for education concerning issues involving automated manufacturing as well as the application of artificial intelligence techniques and computer networks to manufacturing systems. Students also learn about the integration of people in the modern...
