Paper Title:
Virtual Machining Applied to the Teaching of Manufacturing Technology
  Abstract

Teaching methodology for industrial engineering must adapt and update its pedagogy by adopting innovative and dynamic approaches to training in state-of-the-art manufacturing technology. The development of virtual reality and computer simulation software has significantly improved the quality of education by raising learner motivation, commitment, and participation in the learning process. In university contexts characterised by large numbers of students, a hands-on approach to training in machine-tool operation on lathes and mills is unfeasible. Hence, the teaching methodology proposed involves the use of machine-tool simulators to undertake practical tasks in a virtual learning environment. The learning tasks focus on the main machine-tool components and their movements as well as on the principles and operations of machining in turning and milling processes performed on virtual machine where learners can acquire skills similar to those using traditional methodology, but require fewer resources and learning time spans.
