Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have knowledge of the collection and analysis of empirical data.
  • Must have knowledge of analytical methods for contracting order process.
  • Must have knowledge of project management theories and methods.
  • Must have knowledge of modelling processes.

Skills

  • Analyse a construction order process with emphasis on design and manufacturing issues.
  • Process empirical project data.
  • Explain the production, quality and cost issues in the order process.
  • Interpret the relationship between activities in production through the construction of whole models and detailed models that describe these conditions.
  • Analyse process flows and value creation.
  • Reasoning between the project and the organization's structural, technical and resource building.
  • Interpret the interaction between the parties involved in a project or contract manufacturing company's various organizational units.
  • Argue by using precise production-related terminology.

Competences

  • Must be able to assess the proposed systems and their sensitivity to changes in e.g. customer demands, regulatory, quality, etc.
  • Must be able to establish operational production models. The models can be based on a deterministic, stochastic or heuristic basis.
