Project in Classic Production and Service Technologies

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Students who complete P0 project unit will have gained their first experience in using the problem-based learning method. Furthermore, students will be introduced to the discipline of production and service development.

The students will be required to present a basic analysis of a production process and the social and technical process innovations that made the process possible. The concept must include the basic considerations of business aspects, considerations of simulation vs. physical execution, a trade-off analysis of technological choices and a basic actor analysis. An example application could be an analysis of a classic production technology or of a technology central to a service system. Furthermore the students will be required to prepare a written P0 process analysis of group processes and learning achievements.

Type of instruction

The module is carried out as group-based problem-oriented project work. The group work is carried out as an independent work process in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their workload in collaboration with a supervisor. The project is carried out in groups with normally no more than 7 members.
