How it Works

Classroom Teams are presented with various manufacturing challenges with the goal of having the best throughput, efficiency, and run time at different levels of competition.
  1. Students design, build, program, and implement the best simulated workcell for each challenge.
  2. Teams submit production run video that places them on the Global Advanced Manufacturing Competition Ranking list.
  3. Teams from across the world compete in their classroom to achieve the highest global rank among classmates and teams.
