The product realization process comprises all activities ranging from product idea to a realized product i.e., includes a product development and operation of an effective production system. The course in product realization processes gives a unique opportunity to understand the relationships and effects of different decisions made during the product realization process and how these decisions influence the product quality and production cost.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course content is task oriented. The course raises issues related to product development and productin which emanate when an industrial company takes an order to develop and produce a specific product. For comprehensivness, the course studies the most common decisions a production unit faces when introducing an upcoming production start.

The course analyzes how these activities can be taken to collaborate and then create prerequisites to offer the customers an attractive product that fulfills the desired properties, with cutting edge technology, economic benefit and environment friendly.

The teaching is carried out through studying relevant activities related to the different aspects of a fictitious company. The lectures make use of presentations of activities with accompanying exercises, in which the participants will come up with the solution by themselves. Assignments can be home taken. Lab exercises provide hands on demonstrations of industrial solutions.

Intended learning outcomes

The course gives the participants a first glance at how an industrial product realization process should be carried out for an attractive product to the customer. After the course the participants will:

  • have knowledge about common methods and supporting tools used in product realization
  • be able to formulate and interpret requirement specifications in product realization
  • have knowledge about the most common function carriers (technical principles which fullfill functions)
  • be able to choose standard components and common design materials to those problems treated in the course
  • be able to measure a simple machine element
  • be able to choose among the most common manufacturing methods
  • be able to propose a simple manufacturing system
  • be able to carry out a simple “detail planning” of a production system (scope, capacity, bottlenecks, scheduling, routing, leadtime…)
  • be able to carry out simpler production floe simulation
  • be familiarized with collaborative work around a technical problem solving in an engineering setting
  • be able to present results from the project tasks in written and oral presentations
