Subject fundamentals
The course aims to provide the basis for the design of industrial plants and their management.
The aim is to acquire knowledge about the layout, configuration of factories and cost management. The lessons are supplemented with visits to production and workshops in the classroom to the presence of experts.
It also detailed the rules of safety at work and introduced the concept of risk management.
Expected learning outcomes
After completing this course the student will be able to know how to design the optimal solution of a layout in relation to safety regulation of workplaces, know the characteristics of transport systems and warehouses.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Elements of technical physics, applied mechanics, statistics, main software for 2D and 3D design.
- Introduction to productive systems
- Criteria for industrial plants location
- Criteria for industrial plants design
- Plant layout design
- Industrial Buildings, Lightening and Electricals, Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning systems: reference legislation, design criteria
- Industrial warehouses
- Traditional material handling equipment
- Automated material handling equipment
- Managing workplace safety: reference legislation and methodological
- Compressed Air systems: reference legislation, design and sizing
- Water and Fire protection systems: reference legislation and design criteria
Delivery modes
The teaching activities are structured according to a number of lectures, where the course topics are discussed, as well as a project work. In particular, the project work is aimed at performing a feasibility study and preliminary design of a portion of an industrial or logistics plant. This allows to foster those skills and capabilities that ensure the highly cross-functional role required to plant engineers in modern logistics - production contexts. The project is performed by students organized in groups during the entire term. Each group will be weekly guided and supported by the teaching staff.

Assessment and grading criteria
The final mark will sum the written exam grade and the project work grade. The written exam will consist in exercises and open questions appropriately structured in order to check the preparation level of students, especially in terms of the acquired knowledge. The written exam is assessed up to a maximum of 24 points out of 30. The acquired industrial plant capabilities are also assessed through a synthetic evaluation of the project work outcomes, which considers all the engineering, managerial, organizational, and regulatory aspects characterizing the definition of the project during its entire development. The project work is assessed up to a maximum of 8 points out of 30
