098351 - INDUSTRIAL PLANTS B
The Course aims at giving the student the necessary knowledge and technical tools to critically approach industrial plants design. In particular, the course involves the identification and assessment of different planning solutions in the three phases of the design process: industrial plant design, implementation, and management, with a particular focus on their interaction. Real-life examples are provided for all the topics.
The course targets the following Goals, within the broader context of the Programme, so as to empower the Student capabilities to:
- Understand context, functions, processes and performance with reference to the industrial plants
- Design solutions applying a scientific and engineering approach with reference to the industrial plants.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
With reference to the selected Goals at the Programme level, the Expected Learning Outcomes of the course relate to each Student being able to:
- Identify in a systematic way the relevance of the contextual factors, functions and processes with respect to the performance of a project, of a plant as a whole, or of a component, based on the general principles and laws/methods/models for industrial plant design, implementation, and management
- Set up and solve a problem related to a project, to plant as a whole, or to a component, applying the general principles and laws/methods/models for industrial plant design, implementation, and management.
Industrial plants: introduction and general concepts.
Feasibility study: market analysis, production systems design, investment appraisal, risk and sensitivity analysis.
Industrial layout: product analysis, material flows and relationship analysis (rel-charts), layout planning, Muther model.
Location Problem: contextual factors, strategic directions, methods and criteria.
Industrial storage and material handling systems: conveyors, loading systems, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), automatic store systems.
Occupational Health and Safety: legislation, risk assessment and management techniques, OHS management
System Safety: principles and techniques
Modalità di valutazione
The final grade will be based on a written exam, and on an oral exam, which have to be held in the same call.
The written exam consists of a set of quantitative problems to solve, and questions to answer; their assessment equally takes into account the formal development and the quantitative/qualitative content, so as to appraise the capability of each Student to:
- Identify the relevance of either contextual factors, or functions or processes with respect to the performance of a project, or of a plant as a whole, or of a component
- Set up and solve a problem related to a project, or to plant as a whole, or to a component.
The oral exam starts with the discussion of the written exam, then focuses on the knowledge and understanding of the content of the course, as well as of the general principles and laws/methods/models for industrial plant design, implementation, and management.
