Manufacturing Technology. Curriculum Guide.
North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck.
This guide provides the basic foundation to develop a one-semester course based on the cluster concept, manufacturing technology. One of a set of six guides for an industrial arts curriculum at the junior high school level, it suggests activities that allow students (1) to become familiar with and use some of the tools, materials, and processes needed in the manufacturing phase of industry, and (2) to become aware of occupations in the manufacturing field. Following an introduction covering rationale, cluster outline and objectives, and cluster taxonomic structure, fourteen units are presented: structure of industry, elements of manufacturing, mass production and automation, primary metals industry, casting metal, forging and forming metal, measuring and layout (English and/or metric), machining and finishing metal, fastening and finishing metal, lumbering and forest products, cutting and shaping wood, assembling and finishing wood, plastic material and processes, and opportunities in manufacturing. Each unit includes unit objectives, student competencies and related student activities, illustrations and diagrams, and where applicable, directions for student projects. A bibliography of films and other materials, and a listing of equipment are appended. (SH)
