Course detail

Data Processing

FSI-GSZAcad. year: 2020/2021

The course acquaints students with the problems of data processing in the production process. The basic methods of data collection, industrial buses, methods of data transmission including security, data analysis and processing and last but not least the recording in the database system will be described. Emphasis is placed on current methods that meet the requirements for Industry 4.0.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught in the form of lectures that have the character of explanation of basic principles and theory of the given discipline. Teaching is complemented by laboratory exercises.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

The course consists of exercises and lectures. Exercise is completed by credit (awarded in the 13th week). To obtain it is required 100% participation in exercises and activity in exercises. Students will work out the individual work in the prescribed range and quality. Based on the quality of the work in the exercise, the student earns up to 30 points for the exam The work must be submitted in writing and checked and recognized by the teacher. The test is realized by written test, student can get up to 70 points from this test, where 30 points from exercises. Evaluation of the test result is given by the ECTS grading scale.

The aim of the course is to organize the knowledge and methods used in data processing in the production process.

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

Attendance at lectures is recommended, participation in laboratories is controlled. A maximum of two absences in the laboratories can be compensated by the independent elaboration of missing protocols.
