OVERVIEW

Under the title  'Production Systems' one can place very many different problems. This course is related with the decomposition of a planning and control problem of a production systems in different subproblems. For any of the subproblems after a analysis process, a set of solving technques will be considered. Such solving techniques have to be integrated in possible solution of the 'main' production problem.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Management and control of production systems are the main topics of the course. Starting from the inventory management, different aspects will be considered as: determination of the production capacity, determination of the production time of an order, MRP and just in time techniques.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The analysis and decomposition of complex problems into simpler ones to be integrated is one of the most (if not the only) efficient methods to approach the solution of 'large scale' problems. At the end of the course, the student will be able to understand and analyze problems underlying industrial production, from raw material management to planning and control of the actual production. On the basis of the techniques provided to solve each subproblem, a solution of the whole production problem can be set.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course has the following structure:

1) Analysis of the different characteristics of the production systems

2) Planning and control problems for mass, on demand production

3) Stock inventory and raw material management

4) Planning and control problems: bill of materials, load balancing,scheduling, push or pull production techniques

5) Integration of the single problem solving techniques for a possible solution of the main production problem
