Abstract:


Retrofitting of machine has become an interesting option for manufacturing and processing of the industry. It offers numerous advantages in the area of cost-saving as well as in maintaining a high quality. For these reasons will affect directly on the competency and demands of engineers in the industry. Thus, this paper presents the retrofitting of machine through the problem-based learning (PBL). This study was adapted such a scenario as the main approach to the questioning and assessment. The results of implementation with the third-year mechatronics students shows that the students can retrofit the machine successfully and achieve defined objectives. Therefore, this retrofitting of machine based learning was an alternative to promote learning and prepare mechatronics students on the according basis with the actual demands of the industry.
