Docente TitolareLuigi Uglietti
Office"Torre" (main tower), ground floor

Learning Objectives

The course aims to give students basic knowledge of design issues of production systems. In particular, teaching aims to equip students with basic knowledge of:

     The technical organization of production systems
     The performance indices that characterize them
     The principles of design and sizing

Teaching also includes the introduction of some major production technologies

Learning targets

At the end of the course the student will gain knowledge and understanding about:

     The characteristics of the different types of production systems (both for process productions and for manufacturing productions)
     The skills needed to interact effectively with other business functions involved in plant project
     The technological evolution that is in place and the impact they have on manufacturing systems
