Production Planning (Seminar)

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Production Planning (Seminar)
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013
Module code: WIBASc-525-625-Ing1
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
1U+1P (2 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 6
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Project work

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

WIBASc-525-625-Ing1 (P450-0036) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013 , semester 6, 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):
WIBASc-535 Introduction to Scientific Work (with seminar)
WIBASc245 Manufacturing Engineering

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module students will:
_        be able to systematically and comprehensibly plan production for (new) products, including the essential technical (machines, tools, production processes, time schedules and number of employees) and economic aspects (investments, production costs), i.e. students will
_        be able to create a production parts list and a process graph from a product.
_        be able to develop a production concept with estimates of employee requirements and investments.
_        be able to create a layout for a one-piece-flow assembly line and build it as a 1:1 model, as well as to transfer this into a concept for total production.
_        be able to estimate the necessary investments and staff capacities.

[updated 02.07.2019]
Module content:
Based on a specific product, e.g. drilling machine, jigsaw, orbital sander, a production plan will be created:
_        Component analysis with parts list and decision regarding in-house/external production
_        Creation of a process graph, production concept with time specifications and individual investments
_        Creation of a layout for a chaku-chaku line with a high manual part
_        Planning the production for a multi-year quantity scenario
_        Calculation of production costs
If industrial partners are available, their existing production lines will be analyzed and replanned.

[updated 02.07.2019]
Teaching methods/Media:
The following types of media will be used during the seminar: Projector, slides, laptop, sample components, blackboard, daylight recorder, etc.
Planning will take place 1 to 1 in the model factory with mobile assembly tables, including assembly tools and devices. Results will be presented and discussed in several groups.
