Once you've done some initial background reading, it's time to narrow down your manufacturing design process topic to what you need to include in your weekly written progress reports and presentation. Remember your assignment requirements and consider what you've read thus far.
As you start to narrow your research into a PowerPoint presentation, you'll want to continue to look for more sources.
Here are a few topics to address as you narrow your manufacturing design project:
Theory and flow of the operation of your process
Terminology relevant to the process and the project development cycle
Technical functions of, and relevant application of each component of the process
Problems that may arise during the design of the automation project.
Aspects of the design and development of the project
