OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The course addresses the need for engineers to develop solutions which have the potential to address global challenges by providing products, services and processes taking into account local capabilities and constraints to achieve an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable society in a technological perspective. Resources required for manufacturing and use of such products are limited and not evenly distributed in the world. Locally available resources, local capabilities as well as local constraints have to be drivers for product- and process innovations with respect to the entire life cycle. The course aims to provide a tool box for supporting sustainable manufacturing practices to assist manufacturing companies reduce inputs, waste and costs, improve efficiencies, increase productive performance, achieve greater competitiveness. The course encourages an holistic system perspective integrating social, environmental, economical, and technological factors.
