Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

After the course, the students should be able to:

  • Use the correct terminology and jargon to discuss business related questions in the production domain.
  • Describe and discuss the most important trends in leading contemporary literature in the area of business driven production development
  • Identify and analyse new important contributions in the larger field that connects the business process and the modelling dimension with the traditional discipline of manufacturing research  
  • Reflect on the effects of new literature on own research

Intended learning outcomes

This is a typical literature analysis based course and its focus will be on contributions that connect business with the technical dimension in manufacturing related disciplines.

The first part of the course (2-3 seminars) will be devoted to provide basic knowledge in the discipline. In detail, the contributions that are analysed in this part intend to give a good understanding of the relation between business models and production technology.

The other part of the course will lay the foundation for and advance such knowledge through well chosen reading. In addition to this there will be an activity for co-creation of study material as a basis for preparing the course for future questions.
