WIMAScWPF-Ing3 Industrial Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2014 , semester 1, 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.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be familiar with the essential influencing factors of logistics-compatible factory planning. They will be able to determine location criteria (including international criteria) and process it in a systematic location selection, design logistics processes and key figures for factory planning and, based on this, create qualified space requirement and cost estimates. They will be familiar with the current procedures in the construction planning and tendering phases of factory buildings and will be able to carry out negotiation and contract award procedures. Students will be able to perform dimensioning tasks for factory buildings and logistics and carry out logistic bottleneck analyses with computer-aided simulation systems. They will be proficient managing and monitoring delivery times for structural and technical facilities and their commissioning and acceptance.
