Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The objective of the course is to combine and crystallize all previous production engineering studies and knowledge. Important part of the course is the practical factory design project. Assignment for the exercise project is to design a real life product manufacturing plant. Different investment calculation models and methods are in focus. Writing supply and delivery agreements and contracts is important. Students are encouraged to use different production planning, modelling and simulation software and systems in layout -planning and production process design. Service and maintenance operations of the factory are also included.
