COURSE DESCRIPTION

The starting point for the course is Lean Production, with an understanding of principles and concepts that can lead to higher efficiency. Then we introduce computer-based application for modelling and simulation of production systems. This provides the opportunity to simulate a production system, perform experiments on it according to different conditions, and optimize the system to increase efficiency.

This course is for professionals who work with production systems at different levels with a responsibility for individual production lines, departments, or has a role as production manager or production development. The course will mainly focus on the manufacturing industry in application examples, but principles that will be addressed will be applicable to a number of industries, including consulting companies working towards the manufacturing industry.

The course contains the following:

  • Production systems and concepts such as Industry 4.0 and Smart Industry
  • Lean Production and workshop with the Lean game
  • Programming exercises with event-based simulation of production systems
  • Analysis and optimization of production systems

The majority of the course will take place on Campus (Växjö), and at a distance according to the schedule below. Some of the exercises are preferably attend on Campus, but we plan for it to be possible to follow the full course at a distance due to the Covid-situation.
