COURSE CREDIT UNIT: 3
ACADEMIC PROGRAMME: Mechanical Engineering, Bsc
COLLEGE/SCHOOL/FACULTY: School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
STATUS: Elective
PROGRAMME TYPE: Undergraduate

Course Description


The course covers fundamental laws that govern production systems and utilize them for the

purposes of analysis, design, and management. In this course, foundations of PSE will be described, along with PSE Toolbox that implements the algorithms developed. Numerous case  studies  in  large  volume  manufacturing  industries  (e.g.,  automotive,  electronics, consumer products, etc.) will be covered.

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

On  completion of  this  course, the  students are  expected to  understand the  quantitative analytical methods for analysis, continuous improvement, and design of production systems.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, the student should be able to learn rigorous engineering methods

for analysis, design, and continuous improvement of production systems

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Students  will  learn  rigorous  engineering  methods  for  analysis,  design,  and  continuous

improvement of production systems.
