Machine Trades Lab Management Guide.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Instructional Materials Lab.
This manual was developed to guide machine trades instructors and vocational supervisors in sequencing laboratory instruction and controlling the flow of work for a 2-year machine trades training program. The first part of the guide provides information on program management (program description, safety concerns, academic issues, implementation strategies, and evaluation strategies), lifetime skills, entrepreneurship skills, a list of items needed for student tool kits, shop tools and major equipment lists, and a competency list for machine trades. Following sections contain information on organization of the 2 years of the program, rotation charts for the four 9-week periods in each year, and outlines of 13 units for junior year and 11 units for senior year. Each unit includes time allotted, lab status, number of new competencies, instructional objective, list of competencies, and suggested management and evaluation strategies. The junior year units cover the following topics: orientation, shop management, and safety; measuring tools; bench work; layout; power saws; abrasives; shapers; developing and reinforcing competencies; lathes; drill presses; mills; computer-aided manufacturing, numerical control, and robotics (basic); and developing and reinforcing competencies. Senior units cover orientation, shop management, and safety; measuring tools and layout; abrasives (review); superabrasives; heat treating and metallurgy; lathes; developing and reinforcing competencies; drill presses; mills; computer-aided manufacturing, numerical control, and robotics (intermediate); and developing and reinforcing competencies. An appendix provides a progress chart for recording student competencies. (KC)
