Course detail

Technology of Machines Production, Production Methods and Production Economy

FSI-GT0Acad. year: 2017/2018

The course summarizes methods applied for creating manufacturing techniques with regard to the components in engineering industry in connection with their processing by manufacturing machines. As far as economic terms of the manufacture are concerned, it aims to determine a methodical procedure for setting the factory price of a particular type of component.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The course “Technology of Production Machines, Manufacturing Techniques, Economy of Manufacture” provides students with the latest information from the field of business activities, manufacturing process, and the assessment of implemented investments.
