PRESENTAZIONE

The course is focused on quality and sustainability in production facilities accordingly to technology development, design and management. Industry 4.0 paradigm will be the base of the course with internal and external perspectives on the main performance dimensions such as productivity, quality, reliability, flexibility as well as social, economical, and environmental aspects. Interaction with smart safety topics and cyber security will be also provided.

OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The course is focused on the study of quality and sustainability in production units and in the technology development, design and applications. After an initial classification of the general problem, the course will review in depth issues related to industrial production of a product used as an example and integrity control methodologies. The course topics involve activities in the areas of: innovative technologies in industrial and transports uses, environmental aspects in production, new materials development and processes management for sustainability.

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

The course addresses the need for engineers to develop solutions which have the potential to address
global production 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. Quality trend and customization are increasing and rapidly adapting. 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 an overview of gloabal trends, challenges, and opportunities impacting on internal factory, sustainable supply chains, logistics, and other external factors.  The methodologies and tools presented aim to supporting sustainable manufacturing and transportation 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.
