WS 2018/2019
Course supervisor:
Supervising department:
Prerequisites for registration:
Time allowance: full-time, 2/2 (hours of lectures per week / hours of seminars per week)
Type of study: usual, consulting
Form of teaching:
lecture, seminar
Mode of completion and credits:
Exam (4 credits)
Course objective:
The aim of the course is to acquaint students with basic models and methods of analysis and optimization of production and logistics systems. The models deal with the design, management, measurement and improvement of production systems. Attention is also paid to models and analysis of supply chains. In the course the students will
become acquainted with both the analytical approach to solving problems and the possibilities of using computer simulation.
Course methods:
Lecture notes followed by seminars.
Course content:
Basic terms of production systems. (allowance 2/2)
Basic model of production system.
b.Types of production systems.
Phases of the analysis of production systems.

2.Design of the production system. (allowance 6/6)
a.Product design process, facilities allocation.
Scheduling models - orientated on product and process.
Group scheduling.

3.Models of production systems management. (allowance 6/4)
Production planning.
b.Production scheduling.
c.Inventory and supply chain management.

Models od measurement and improvement of efficiency of production systems. (allowance 4/4)
a.Measurement of quality and efficiency.
Multiple criteria evaluation of efficiency.
Project management.

Computer simulation of logistics processes. (allowance 6/8)
a.Introduction to computer simulation.
b.Use of simulation programm Plant Simulation.
Structure and building of the simulation model.
d.Data analysis.
e.Simulation experiments.

Learning outcomes and competences:
After completing the course, student:
-Will analyze the data obtained from the real production system in order to parameterize the simulation model
Will apply theory of mathematical modeling to design of production systems
Will demonstrate the use of computer experiments with a simulation model for the optimization of processes in production and logistics systems
-Will prove the ability to use optimization models and heuristic methods for managing production systems
Will understand and explain the principles of optimizing processes in production and logistics systems
