Assessment Name: Advanced CNC Machinist Assessment Test – Nov ‘16
Number of Questions: 171
Description: The Advanced CNC Machinist Assessment tests more advanced concepts for a machinist, including statistics, GD&T, heat treatment, leadership and management, fixtures, cutting tool materials and selection, G-code programming and calculations for the lathe and mill, and introductory fluid system safety, fundamentals, and print reading. Topic areas also include lean manufacturing, six sigma, Kaizen events, statistical process control, and process flow charting. The assessment also contains a comprehensive group of questions on brand-specific controls, including Fanuc, Haas, and Mazak control panels, offset entering, program zero location, program execution and storage, and first part runs, as well as EIA/ISO and Mazatrol programming for Mazak machines. All questions map to TU-SME classes.
Instructions: This online test requires uninterrupted access to a computer with an Internet connection. For math-related questions, please have paper and pencils on hand for your calculations. Textbooks, calculators, and other electronic devices are NOT allowed.
