This Final Year Project is about the improvement of small scale production line. Improvement of the existing project is needed so that the system serves its purpose and functionality as a learning aid for engineering students in this university. This system is suitable as a learning aid to expose students about the basic mechanism in a production line and its control system. The main challenge in developing this project is to rewiring the system with a new Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) as the previous PLC for this system has been used for other project. With the new improvements, this project can contribute to the learning process of students in our university. The existing system has several mechanical flaws that could compromise its operation, therefore some improvements is required to ensure that this system can operate smoothly as it should be. The whole system is based on a real production line that can be found in industries. The application of PLC to control the pneumatic system has been used in some industries. Simulation for the PLC programming is done by using Automation Studio 5.0. Programming in forms of ladder diagram is simulate using the software to make sure that the programming is working. The improved programming was done to compensate with the hardware specifications. The usage of PLC makes the control system flexible and available for further improvements. Therefore, this project has potential to be further improved into a more complex manufacturing system.
