Course detail

Production Management

FP-Rrv1PAcad. year: 2017/2018

The aim of the course is to provide theoretic, operational and organizational and management categories, concepts, models and management techniques, terminology and methodology of incomes, transformation and output items of product process. The course provides the knowledge of techniques of utilization of available resources in a dynamically evolving conditions of a market relations and ways of rational use of human factors in production. The subject provides knowledge How to use linkages of engineering and production process for realization changes by acquiring of required outputs and efficiency in terms of strategy, tactics and surgery.
It integrates manufacturing processes into industrial engineering and focuses on product lifecycle management.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Subject the student passes the competence management process at the strategic level.
Student will acquire knowledge of and skills with the data bases for production planning.Measuring the productivity and production costs. Productivity of production.Operating control of production. Production capacity balance. Calculations of projecting a production system.Technical–economic standards of consumption. Order progression.Components production working time. Working time of a complicated product.Technical servicing of production. Tools management. Care for production base. Totally productive maintenance. Energy management, production logistics.IT/ICT scheduling supported production process.


Student is expected to have the following knowledge and skills when he/she begins in course of Production Management: basic economic approaches (macroeconomics indicators, market characteristics – demand, supply, costs curves etc.). Students have to be familiar with the economy of company and specific mathematic discipline, i.e. Decision-making.Students are expected to have the knowledge acquired within the bachelors study programme in the area of production planning in specific manufacture sector (working out technical documentation - project, construction and, technology of a new or innovated product). At the same time the student has a basic knowledge of production management from the calculation of the production capacity of work, production lead time components of the project and the production system.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Lectures will be proceeded with using of didactical technique by using Power Pointe.
Seminars will take place as well as computational laboratory for the use of the product OR-Systém
To obtain an overview of the use of knowledge in practice and excursions in manufacturing enterprises

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit is awarded on condition of having attended all required seminars, seminars in a computer lab and excursion in an industrial enterprise. The exam has a written and an oral part. Written exam consists of solutions of exercises and the theory. The exam is 50 minutes long.Oral exam verifies the mark given for the written part and makes the final grade more accurate.For awarding grade E it is necessary to process examples up to the numerical formulation and prove minimum knowledge of theory - e.g. additional tasks related to the theoretical approaches answered orally.

The main objective of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge and skills necessary for production process management in relation to the development trends in the field of production management in the world and global manufacturing. Students will master the latest techniques and methodology of projecting, planning and controlling of production systems under control. They will learn how to make decisions about the manufacturing programme and securing of resources, how to the realize production process with respect to material and capability resources, time smoothness and economic efficiency, as well as performances of production processes, production systems and production results.
Create conditions for Word Class Manufacturing Lean manufacturing process through end digitalization.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance is required and checked by the tutor especially at seminars in a computer lab and at excursion. Absence from seminars in a computer lab has to be compensated for by attending a special term of seminar in a computer lab. Absence from excursion may be compensated for via working out a written report of the excursion in another manufacturing company in size of 6 pages.
