Task Analysis and Descriptions of Required Job Competencies of Robotics/Automated Systems Technicians. Outlines for New Courses and Modules.
Hull, Daniel M.; Lovett, James E.
The six new robotics and automated systems specialty courses developed by the Robotics/Automated Systems Technician (RAST) project are described in this publication. Course titles are Fundamentals of Robotics and Automated Systems, Automated Systems and Support Components, Controllers for Robots and Automated Systems, Robotics and Automated Systems Interfaces, Robotics/Automated Systems at Work, and Automated Work Cell Integration. This information is included for each course: a course description, course outline with number of classroom and laboratory hours per week, laboratory activities, and a list of student competencies. Each course is further amplified by the inclusion of suggested modules and module outlines (an introduction, topic outline, and a list of instructional objectives) to support that course. The module outlines could be used as a guide by instructors wishing to write their own text material and laboratory manuals. (YLB)
