Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

WIBAS-450/550-M2e (P420-0420) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2007 , semester 5, optional course
WIBASc-525-625-Ing14 (P420-0420) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013 , semester 5, optional course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
