  • 1
    Analog to digital conversion is commonly used because:
    This boost the signal
    Many sensors are analog
    Few computers are digital
    Almost all sensors are digital
  • 2
    The advantages of semi-automation, with both people and machines involved in the manufacturing process, are the:
    Use of the greater flexibility and ingenuity of people
    Maintenance times available
    Reduced cost of expensive machines
  • 3
    A block diagram is sued to illustrate the:
    Program in the microprocessor
    Cost of system components
    Relationships between system components
    Damping used in the system design
  • 4
    The name of the sensor used to measure applied pressure is:
    Potentiometer
    Solenoid
    Ventri tube
    Strain gauge
  • 5
    The optimum system response to feedback is referred to as:
    Critically damped
    Underdamped
    A continuous system
    A discrete system
  • 6
    An actuator commonly used to act as a type of switch would be a:
    Stepper motor
    Thermistor
    Relay
    Solenoid
  • 7
    When discussing automated manufacturing systems, the term "noise" would refer to:
    A loud machine
    High frequency electrical signals
    A machine that is most likely faulty
    Unwanted electrical signals
  • 8
    The three basic types of automated manufacturing systems are:
    Batch, continuous and discrete
    Batch, prototype and discrete
    Electronic, mechanical and pneumatic
    Manual, electronic and microprocessor
  • 9
    The most suitable sensor for detecting a sudden change of motion is:
    An accelerator
    A relay
    A magnetic transducer
    A linear potentiometer
  • 10
    Computer aided manufacturing is used so much these days because:
    Data from the design stage can be integrated using the software
    Machines never make mistakes like human workers do
    Human workers cause a lot of problems with sickness and stoppages
    This process is much less expensive to set up in the first place
