SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING Layout of the course The focus of the course is on teaching you tools to use, but we must cover some basic  information first.  So roughly, the way the course will work is to cover some rote-ish  material first, then move into application.  For most of the course, this will be a “do  things” class and not a “know things” class. There are three early quizzes and a midterm.  These will cover the “rote” material,  which is basically on ergonomics and physiology.  The lowest quiz grade will be  dropped.  Quizzes and the midterm will be held in this room during lecture.  (Quizzes  will take up the first 15 minutes of class.) After that, the evaluations are all based on homework and labs. There will be a final exam. This is the first time I’ve taught this, so there are likely to be substantial changes as we  go along.

SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING The book This course is going to require you to read the book, as there are things in there that I  will require you to know, but which I will not cover in class.  (Usually, this would be  things you need to be able to recall.) We will be skipping around rather than covering the book sequentially. We (Dr. Lehto and myself) are re-writing the book.  Occasionally I will provide you  with handouts of the new chapter.

SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING Course objectives (1) At the beginning of the lectures covering each chapter, I will give you some objectives. These objectives will be specific. You are responsible for being able to meet those objectives, and the tests will evaluate  these objectives directly.  The projects will be evaluated against these objectives. For example, one objective may be: Be able to recall without reference the 99 th  percentile limits on the stature of American men

SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING Course objectives (2) In addition to the chapter objectives, the following objectives are considered pass-fail.
