  • Purpose and learning objectives

    Case 2 with the sub title Mass Production is an assignment covering 3 core areas from the PRT curriculum; Business Technology (BT), Production Engineering (PE), and Materials and Manufacturing processes (MMP).

    You are working in groups to set up new production facilities in a new country with another culture to meet a new market demand of a designer lamp.

    Your main task is to plan and set-up the new production facilities by viewing the new production from operational and strategic angels on a new market.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain knowledge about the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods, including:

    physical properties of and suitable manufacturing processes for:
    • metals, particularly steel and aluminium
    • plastic, elastomers and composites
    • wood
    • ceramics
    • new materials

    joining technologies
    machining processes

    The student will gain knowledge about the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods in:

    manufacturing and production processes
    principles in production engineering, including:
    • production layout
    • process and product flows

    basis of production, including data processing
    stock building and management
    lead-time in production engineering
    allocation of resources
    cost prices
    physical work environment in production.

    The student will gain knowledge about the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods in:

    project management
    production and stock management systems
    business organisation
    internationalisation.

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:

    apply the key methodologies and tools of the subject area as well as the skills associated with employment in the industry, including:

    the use of databases/reference books for the provision of data on materials, including
    • physical properties
    • manufacturing processes
    • environment/sustainability.

    assess practice-orientated issues and suggest and select possible solutions, including:

    identification, assessment and recommendation of suitable manufacturing processes

    The student will get the skills to:

    apply the key methodologies and tools of the subject area as well as the skills associated with employment in the industry, including:

    o preparation of the manufacture of a product taking into account the company's other systems, cost price and a given production layout.

    assess practice-orientated issues and suggest and select possible solutions, including:

    o translating the basis of construction into basis of production
    o preparation of production plans on the basis of production and use of methodical planning tools.

  • Type of instruction
    Casework and group work
  • Exam

    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

    Exam in one or more subjects
    Subject/module is tested standalone
    Type of exam
    Combined written and oral examination
    Oral exam based on a written project.
    Formal requirements
    The report must comply with the following criterias:

    Max. 10 actual pages (A4), text and graphics equally represented, i.e. max 5 written pages x 2400 = 12.000 characters incl. spaces
    At least half of the report must consist of graphical illustrations, such as tables, diagrams, sketches, drawings, graphs, calculations and images.
    Use an easily readable font in size 12


    Exceeding the rapport extent (see above) can affect the grade. If the difference is significant, - ie more than 25% - then formal requirements are not observed and it could result in a rejection of the project.

    Please note that the projects will be checked for plagiarised content. Plagiarised content also includes the reuse of more than one sentence from your previous projects unless the source is clearly stated.

    Hand-in
    Upload a 10 pages report (pdf file) in WISEflow
    Present a quantified labour division of the workload on the last slide of the group presentation
    Individual exam or group exam
    Group, 3-6 max participants
    Exam languages
    Danish (Norwegian/Swedish)
    Duration
    The exam is based on an oral 10 minutes group presentation.

    In the presentation, we expect to see a visually coherent and well-documented presentation that conveys the group's decision process, documenting relevant aspects from the development process, the systematic selection of materials, as well as the statics and strength calculations of critical points in your construction.

    The oral plenary presentation is followed by a 15 minutes individual examination. In this time frame questioning, votation, and a brief feedback is included.

    Grades will be given on WISEflow.
    Type of evaluation
    7-point grading scale
    Examiners
    Internal censure
    Exam criteria
    Your report - and presentation - should include the following topics:

    Business Technology
    Set up the project team and the project schedule
    Find a location and consider the culture and cooperate organization
    Consider which parts to buy and which ones to manufacture
    Calculate the investments necessary to start the new production facilities
    Calculate the operation costs and break even

    Production Technology
    Layout the production and consider the production method
    Draw an operation diagram of materials, manufacturing and assembling processes. Calculate the process time in a process diagram
    Plan the daily operations and machine maintenance with the necessary resources in a Gantt Chart
    Materials and warehouse planning
    Use production simulation to verify the production planning and consider the OEE

    Materials and manufacturing processes
    Detailed descriptions of materials, manufacturing processes and machine capacity
    Bill of material
    End of life considerations & take back policy
94
hours of teaching
207
hours of preparation
The figure shows the extent of workload related to the subject divided into different study activities.

In the subject Mass production and manufacturing processes you will receive 94 hours of instruction, which corresponds to 125 lessons (1 lesson = 45 min.) and 31% of your total workload for the subject.

The teaching primarily consists of the following activities: cases, classroom teaching, group work, exercises, internal lecturers.
