MG2103 Industrial Process Engineering 6.0 credits

Industriell Produktionsteknik

The course focuses on part manufacturing and thus deals with principles for building manufacturing systems, as well as the latest technology in part manufacturing and automation of material handling.

Course topics include industrial control systems, communication technology, sensors and servo systems, flexible manufacturing systems, production lines and material handling. Particular attention will be paid to control and automation technology, and process and condition monitoring used in manufacturing cells.

Other areas covered include analysis of manufacturing processes and recognition of improvement opportunities, based on factory flow simulation. During the course, the student will be introduced to typical simulation models for supporting production related decisions.Lean production implementation methods will also be covered.

Finally, basic maintenance management methods, required for ensuring sufficient up-time and proper working and environmental conditions.

Intended learning outcomes *

Upon completion of the course requirements, the student should be able to:

  • efficiently develop production technology for manufacturing industry
  •  set up a requirements list for a part manufacturing system and its components
  • evaluate and select among different technical solutions for automation of material supply and other     peripheral equipment
  • plan and carry out implementation and deployment of a part manufacturing system
  • master methods for planning and control of production, in particular through the use of simulation-based process improvement
