Intended learning outcomes

After completing this module the student should be able to:

  • undersand the behaviour of manufacturing processes and how environmental and technological factors will affect them. The course will develop the student´s knowledge about modern manufacturing processes and the strategies considerations that need to be applied when selecting a specific process
  • Distinguish between different kind of process and planning methods and characterise them with respect to application and operation
  • Understand and have gained knowledge about manufacturing planning and its relation to econometrics
  • Which things a production engineer needs to consider in order to optimize a manufacturing process
  • Which things a production engineer need to consider in order to optimize a manufacturing system
  • Understand the impact of and distinguish between different organisational philosophies
  • Practical experience of laboratory work
  • Understand, use (read and Write) and verbal communicate the basic "Technical English" terms connected to the subjects int the module
  • Plan and solve an industrial task and write a technical report
