Module content:
Within the framework of a feasibility study, the students in the group must plan a production plant together. This includes, on the one hand, the description of the production process, the design of the machines and equipment required for production and the design of a layout for the entire plant. And on the other, students must determine the achievable prices for the purchase and sale of raw materials and products and make a prediction as to whether the planned company can be operated economically.
The project must be completed within a maximum of 15 weeks. The results will be presented in a PowerPoint presentation and written down in a joint paper.
