Subject fundamentals
The objective of the course is to introduce the student to the issues related to the functioning and management of the production systems and to the operational methods used in such a context. In particular, the performance evaluation of production systems is analyzed exploiting its dependence from controllable and uncontrollable factors. Building on the description of the system dynamics, production planning problems are studied at different hierarchical levels, from long term capacity planning till shop floor scheduling.
Expected learning outcomes
The student is required to deeply understand the topics and being able to use them in real problem analysis. Starting from a description of a real (or realistic) problem, the student must be able to understand it, to select the best tools/techniques/ approaches to use to study it and to apply the chosen tools/techniques/ approaches to arrive to a solution both from a qualitative and quantitative point of view.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Statistics, analysis, mathematical programming, basics in computer programming and English language.
Definition, analysis and evaluation of process capacity.
Deterministic production planning / inventory management: aggregate production planning, MRP, lot sizing, EOQ, scheduling.
Production systems affected by uncertainty: evaluation, effects and reduction of variability sources.
Lean manufacturing and JIT principles.
Labor cost estimation and reduction.
Delivery modes
Theory (model, algorithms, etc.) and practice (numerical exercises) will be strictly integrated in the same classes. Some classes will be case study based.
Texts, readings, handouts and other learning resources
Required books and reading material will be assigned during the first lesson of the course.
Assessment and grading criteria
The exam consists in two parts, a written part and an oral part, to be done in the same session. To pass the exam, both the parts must be sufficient. The final grade is the average between the written grade and the oral grade. The participation to the exam could be subordinate to the delivery of projects to be carried out by students during the course.
