The aim of the course is to provide to the students of the Master Degree in Management Engineering the analytical tools suitable for recognizing the management strategies applicable to a production system, to examine the main management and organizational issues and to evaluate the performance of the production system in terms of efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

The student must be able to: • Know the methods of analysis of a production system of goods or services; • Apply these methods to simple production systems by describing the main operations, the management structure, and the way the work is divided. • Identify the correct performance indicators for the evaluation of a production system and associate those indicators with descriptive models of an enterprise. • Extend, with appropriate adjustments, the methodologies learned for the analysis of a production chain.

Good knowledge of topics covered in courses dedicated to production systems, logistics and corporate organization.
Good knowledge of topics covered in courses dedicated to production systems, logistics and corporate organization.
a. Introduction to the analysis of industrial systems. a.1. The operating structure: product tree, manufacturing cycle, layout. a.2. The management structure: internal information system and organizational chart. a.3. The interactions between the production system and its market environment: demand analysis. b. Some formal tools to perform performance analysis. c. Analysis of Production Management Methods and Procedures in an Industrial Production System: c.1. Analysis of the most common order scheduling procedures c.2. Analysis of programming procedures: JIT, CONWIP, SERU. c.3. Applications of the procedures. The presentation of the analysis tools is accompanied by examples of their application to realistic production systems.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta; prova orale facoltativa;
The exam consists of a written test containing questions of theoretical nature and the resolution of problems where the application of models and procedures described during the lessons is required. The written exam will last two hours during which the student is not allowed to use any text or note. The student can take an oral exam that can add or deduct to the evaluation of the written part up to a maximum of 3 points. The professor will discuss the outcome of the writing exam individually with each student who requires it.
