Abstract:

The field of automation has had a notable impact in a wide range of industries beyond manufacturing. Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human work in the production of goods and services. In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provides human operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work, automation greatly decreases the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Filling is a task carried out by a machine that packages liquid products such as cold drinks or water. The bottle filling project serves as an interdisciplinary engineering design experience. It introduces aspects of computer, electronics and mechanical engineering, including the following five primary knowledge areas: 1) Machining & Fabrication 2) Electronics circuit prototyping and Programming 3) Sensor and Actuator application 4) Mechanical design 5) Project Planning 6) Presentation Skills.
