Course detail

Projecting and Production Simulation

FEKT-MKC-PSVAcad. year: 2020/2021

The course deals with the innovation of the production process, individual stages of design, modeling of production systems, project preparation of production, methodology of project solution and project planning. Students will become familiar with ERP (Enterprice Resource Planning) and PDM (Product Data Management) and with concepts such as additive manufacturing and simulation of manufacturing processes using modern simulation systems following Industry 4.0. Further attention will be given to the protection of industrial property and the foundations of corporate logistics.
