NTMA-U LAUNCHES TWO NEW MODULES
NRL Safety. A module is now available to all National Robotics Teams that will help the students understand safe handling of the bot. The module also covers safe machining habits.
Dimensional Metrology: Applications and Techniques. This course presents the science of measurement. It is intended for anyone who wishes to learn the basic tools and techniques required for Metrology. This on-line course will provide opportunities that demonstrate the proper use of common hand-held measuring tools. Measurement applications for Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and assessment of measurement quality will be introduced. The course will cover the basic uses and interpretation of geometric dimensions and tolerances as specified for machine trade blueprint. In addition, a variety of related topics are included that apply to measurement principles with “best practices” and fundamental considerations for the proper selection, application, and care of typical precision measurement systems. The course’s objective is to develop awareness, knowledge and basic skills necessary for manufacturing measurement applications. Technical manufacturing terms and principles will be covered in depth. Also included are the following topics: introductory probability and statistics including organization of data, sample space concepts, random variables, counting problems, binomial and normal distribution, central limit theorem, confidence intervals and test hypotheses for large and small samples, types I and II errors, linear regression and correlation.
