Subject fundamentals
The course aims to introduce the main problems of industrial plants, to approach future engineers to professional activity. In particular, to provide the knowledge and skills base for measuring the plant elements with a focus on issues related to the design criteria for security and management of the plant.
Expected learning outcomes
The aim of the course is the definition of competence that the plant engineer develops within the company, with particular reference to the knowledge of the product to be manufactured and logistics service to be provided.
To define the production and logistics needs, to plan the different areas ( manufacturing, logistics, etc.) , to identify transport systems and warehouse, to respect the safety standards and to design the work station according to ergonomic principles.
Completed the course the student will be able to:
- define the optimal layout of an industrial plant
- to plan the different areas (manufacturing, logistics, etc.)
- identify the best solutions for material handling, transport systems and warehouse
- to respect the safety standard
- to design the work station according to ergonomic principles
- to design an antifire system, a lighting system and an underfloor heating system
Students will be expected to:
- produce technical reports professional cutting;
- take a reasoned decision in the presence of conflicting demands;
- estimate the orders of magnitude of the numerical values in different design areas.
These knowledge and skills are acquired through the analysis of specific cases. These examples will help to introduce students to the techniques that the plant engineer needs to know.
