Simulation technology has not only fundamentally changed the way of conducting integrated product design and process development in industries, but also provided educators with new approaches to enhance the learning environment for the best engineering education in schools. This paper describes the authors' initial experience of incorporating robotic workcell simulation technology into the undergraduate coursework of robotics and automation. This includes the discussions about the significant impacts of robotic simulation technology on the processes of learning and conducting robotic workcell design in both industries and schools. The practice has shown that robotic simulation software is an excellent tool for people to study and develop methods of fast product design, manufacturing process planning, and plant floor/cell control support.
