The goal of this course is to familiarize the student with the elements of automated production systems from both traditional and modern (cyber-physical) perspectives, reflecting the long (20-40 year) asset lifecycles commonly seen in large manufacturing plants in both discrete and process industries.

In this exercise, students use Situation Awareness (SA), Gestalt Principles, design affordances, and CIA-for-HMI to design the Human-Machine Interface (HMI) for a cyber-physical system (one that will brew and serve pots of coffee).

This lab exercise explores Fitts Law, which states that response time will be the smallest when the distance to a target is small, and the size of the target is large.

This lab exercise introduces the concept of quality costs and shows you how to analyze and interpret quality cost data for a hypothetical organization that uses the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for risk management, and has designed its cost accounting system around the structure of the Framework Core.  It applies concepts learned during Lesson 3H in Module 3: Managing Security, Safety,
