Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Same as for the Chalmers Master's Programme in Production Engineering

Syfte

Students graduated from Chalmers Master's Programme in Production Engineering must have achieved the knowledge and judgment skills to be able to conceptualize, develop and improve production systems with an emphasis on sustainability.

The primary objective is to convey fundamental knowledge about production systems and to serve as a foundation for further learning in more specialized courses within the Master's Programme. A second objective is to give the students proficiency in design of production systems with focus on following established methodologies to reach organizational goals.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

After the course, students will be able to:
LO1. Compare important paradigms in the history of production systems.
LO2. Explain the main elements of production systems and how they can be integrated strategically in production systems design.
LO3. Outline a structured methodology for production systems development and discuss how such methodology should be applied in different organizations and development projects.
LO4. Assess the environmental impact of a production system and discuss the relation between production systems design and sustainability performance.
LO5. Analyze and improve the Level of Automation (LoA) in a production system considering both physical and cognitive aspects.
LO6. Design and develop high performing production flows with regard to capacity, productivity, reliability, and costs.
LO7. Perform line balancing for single and mixed-model lines using both manual algorithms and professional software solutions.
LO8. Describe a set of engineering tools for production systems development and apply line balancing and simulation tools to reduce balance and system losses.
LO9. Describe the fundamentals of innovation theory and relate its importance to the historical and future progress of production systems.
LO10. Explain the relation between production systems design and system dependability, and analyze the impact of service and maintenance on production performance.

Innehåll

The course covers the following topics:
- History of production systems and production paradigms.
- Innovation theory
- Manufacturing strategy and fundamental elements of production systems.
- Systematic methodology for development of production systems.
- Life cycle analysis in production systems.
- Level of automation for a production system.
- Production flows and line balancing.
- Training in analytical and virtual tools for conceptualization, design and improvement of production systems.

Organisation

Students will learn the course content using a problem oriented pedagogy supported by lectures. This is achieved by lecturers from industry and academia, one factory visit with associated analysis, and lab training in common industrial tools. The evaluation of learning outcomes will be performed using three assessment tasks throughout the course: report and seminar from the factory visit, quizzes and reports related to the lab exercises, and a final exam.

Text book
Scientific papers
Lecture presentations

Examination

The grading scale is: Failed, 3, 4 and 5
The final grade includes the student's performance on three assessment tasks (all tasks must be approved to pass the course):
- Final exam
- Graded report and seminar from the factory visit
- Graded reports from laboratory exercises.
