  • The aim of the course is to create knowledge about the important link that exists between technology and economy, define economic conditions as an instrument of control for production development and to illustrate how different processing steps form a manufacturing system. Further on the course aim to clarify the mutual dependence between production development and recycle adopted manufacturing systems.
  • History and development of manufacturing systems, production types, plant layouts and form of organization, group technology, flow lines, transfer lines, concept of flexibility, manufacturing economy including door-to-door time and cycle time in batch manufacturing and flow line manufacturing, process monitoring, cassation, downtime, time loss, reduction in machine covering, cost neutral relationship, configuration of manufacturing systems, statistic disturbance analysis, systematic manufacturing analysis, production performance, continuous development and improvement work based on lean manufacturing, integrated product development with environmental considerations and recycling technology and outsourcing.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • master the fundamental nomenclature of the manufacturing system field and be able to describe the development of and the prerequisites for the manufacturing systems from mass production to the production philosophies of today.
    be able to describe the characteristics of different types of production and layouts.
    master calculation principles for the manufacturing cost of a production section where all the essential factors are taken into consideration and to have knowledge about different key ratios which describe the performance of the manufacturing system.
    to have an understanding about the basics of manufacturing economic simulation and be able to establish a plan for production development based on goal functions under given conditions.
    be able to describe the tools and principles for a continuous production development based on the concept of lean production among others.
    to have an understanding about the demands that must be made on a manufacturing system regarding environment and recycling aspects.
    to have an understanding about and to be able to exemplify important connections between product development and production and to have an understanding about the prerequisites and the basic knowledge in the field of industrial purchase.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to analyze and calculate the production capacity of a machine or a production section.
    be able to dimension and configure a manufacturing system with known data and statistically handle different behaviours for example disturbances in a manufacturing system.
    be able to plan, put up and carry out a systematic production analysis including analyses of the achieved results.
