Content and learning outcomes
This course is based on the generic curriculum and the methodology for CDIO (Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating). That includes a set of activities to methodologically analyse and develop solution proposals in teams, in one of the sub-areas of sustainable production development. This can concern industrial design, design, analysis, optimisation, choice of material, manufacturing and operation of different technical systems and products in the area of sustainable production development.
The most important results will be a written report and an oral presentation. Relevant and valid results in the work require use of knowledge in different sub-domains that have been covered by previously completed courses, and additional reading and industrial experience, when necessary. The student develops proficiencies in the process of generating new knowledge, based on established theories and methods. The results of the CDIO work must have relevance for industrial application in addition to the academic contribution.
The course contains seminars to develop the CDIO work. The continuous discussion about the work with supervisor and in seminars is an important part of the course.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of the course, the students should be able to:
- demonstrate the ability to master the whole development process design - analyse - test - evaluate to methodologically develop solution proposals for a complex problem in the area of sustainable production development
- have knowledge of established design methods and tools, to be able to identify areas for improvements of new or existing solution for a complex problem in the area of sustainable production development
- plan and carry out a group-based technical development project in the area of sustainable production development with different roles within a given time frame and technical expertise in the project group
- in groups, both account orally and in writing, clearly discuss their concepts, prototypes, solutions, conclusions and the facts and arguments that these build on, with main stakeholders and other project groups, within the scope of the technical development work.
- show how the developed solution can be implemented and operated in an industrial production and logistics context.
- make assessments with regard to relevant social, socio-economic and ethical aspects, both from a local and a global perspective.
- show the skills that are required to participate in development work and the implementation and the operation of the developed solution, to independently be able to work in advanced industrial activities.
