Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course fits into the overall program curriculum pursuing some of the defined general learning goals. In particular, the course contributes to the development of the following capabilities:

  • Understand context, functions, processes in a business and industrial environment and the impact of those factors on business performance
  • Identify trends, technologies and key methodologies in a specific domain (specialization streams)
  • Design solutions applying a scientific and engineering approach (Analysis, Learning, Reasoning, and Modeling capability deriving from a solid and rigorous multidisciplinary background) to face problems and opportunities in a business and industrial environment

Risultati di apprendimento attesi

The main expected learning outcomes for each of the following capabilities are:

1. Understand: the students will learn how the automation and digital technolgoies (i.e. Industry 4.0) are effecting the future manufacturing systems, both in the process industry as well as in the discrete manufacturing systems;

2. Identify: the students will learn how to select (i.e. identify) the best technology and the best application scenario;

3. Design: designing a manufacturing systems is a complex process which requires to deal with the hard, soft and organisational dimensions of the design of the system. Quantitative and qualitative techniques will be explained. The impact evaluation will also be assessed in order to give students the know-how on how to understand the impact of their decisions.
