Course detail

Project, Design and Logistics of Transport and Handling Equipment

FSI-QLDAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course in Project and Design of Transport and Handling Equipments familiarises students with project activities in the sphere of material handling and with new possibilities of computer support used for its rationalization. Material flow, its analysis and evaluation methods are discussed. Mathematical expression of handling-transport problem. Methods of minimizing transport costs. Project documentation of material handling systems. Method of Systematic Handling Analyses. Efficiency indexes of handling systems. Design of storage services. Logistics of handling chain. Simulation of handling processes. Transport logistics and handling acquaints students with the logistics and costs of services and their impact on the efficient function of transport - handling systems. Using computer aided simulation of the transport-handling processes.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The course in Project and Design of Transport and Handling Equipments makes students familiar with the design of handling equipments and material handling planning. Student will be able to optimise the material flow in definite production, evaluate handling work, and to minimize handling-transport costs. The student is able to identify appropriate indicators and logistics to calculate logistics costs and performance. Students will acquire basic knowledge for modeling simple handling and transport processes using the numerical software.

Prerequisites

Successful completion of the course is conditional on the knowledge of technical mechanics and higher mathematics.

Aims

The aim of the course is to make students familiar with methods of project activities in the sphere of material handling. The meaning of material flow and its evaluation are also discussed. The course presents the principle of the S.H.A. method, including evaluation of efficiency of handling systems. Also dealt with is the simulation of handling processes. Another aim is to acquaint students with the concept, purpose and meaning of logistics and transportation planning. Logistics as a tool for optimization, cost reduction and marketing in transport. Logistical factors. Logistics in the transport strategy. Understanding the basics of simulation software "Plant Simulation" and associated programming languages. The possibility of its use for solving transport-handling processes.

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

Attendance at lectures is voluntary.
Attendance at seminars is obligatory and checked by the teacher. Absence may be in justified cases compensated for by the agreement with the course supervisor.
