Course description

The course aims to give learners the main tools in order to design and manage production processes.
After completing the course the learner will have the following tools and requirements:

- Basics for industrial plants design and management;
-Problem solving ability, in real cases;
- Comparison and assessment skills of different production systems;
- Explaining abilbty of acquired knowledge;
- Ability to increase knowledge, according to the specific needs and problems.

Prerequisites

The students have to acquire the following knowledge provided by the courses of "Mathematical Analysis I", "Mathematical Analysis II" and "Probability and Statistics":
- Derivatives and integral resolution;
- Knowledge of probability distributions

Learning assessment

The exam is divided into 2 parts that take place on the same day.

- a written test (4 numeric and application questions) on all the topics discussed in the course. The purpose of the test is to evaluate the study and understanding of the basics and have a character selection.
To pass the test and be admitted to the next one you need to solve at least 3 questions correctly. The test time is 2 hours. It is not permitted to consult texts or use PCs and smartphones;

- an oral test to evaluate the knowledge and ability to link and compare different aspects of the course and to discuss any mistake made in the written test.
The final vote depends on the oral test, regardless of the result of the written test.
