There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Manufacturing enterprises see themselves challenged to design high performing production systems when facing requirements for increasing variety and flexibility. Production System Design introduces techniques to address this challenge by systematically analysing, designing, and improving value streams. This requires knowledge in factory physics, the strategic application of lean management methods to manage variety and an understanding of performance and quality indicators in production systems. Case studies from industrial practice are a vital element of this subject to highlight the complexities of designing production systems.
