Program Summary

*** THIS PROGRAM IS PENDING SACS APPROVAL FOR FALL 2019 (560)***
The Production Systems Management AS (PROSYS-AS) program is a technical degree that combines aspects of management and supervision along with technical skills. This degree will honor SPC's long-standing articulation with Pinellas Technical College's (PTC) technical programs.

The program consists of four subplans: Total Quality Management (TQM), Control Systems (CSYS), Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and Articulations (ART).

The Total Quality Management (TQM) subplan includes the Lean Six-Sigma Green Belt Certificate and will prepare students for positions in quality control and quality management. These positions continue to be in demand as manufacturing production increases. The Control Systems (CSYS) subplan will meet the increasing demand for supervisors who can work with automation, sensors, PLCs, and robotics. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) is a subplan that is forward thinking and prepares students for the new field of Internet of Things or Cloud based manufacturing. The IOT subplan combines engineering technology classes and computer classes and it is anticipated to be a very high growth, high demand field. The Articulations (ART) subplan includes Pinellas Technical College programs that range from 12-24 credits. Students who articulate programs that are less than 24 credits will need to take the remaining credits from a set list of classes that include technical courses from the remaining three subplans.

The Academic Pathway is a tool for students that lists the following items:
o the recommended order in which to take the program courses
o suggested course when more than one option exists
o which semester each course is typically offered
o if the course has a prerequisite
o courses that may lead to a certificate (if offered in the program)
