From the Classic to Modern Production and Service


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

This module is based on knowledge gained in the module Classic Production and Service Technologies (P0) or the like.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

To provide the student with practical experience defining a project within the area of innovative production development (IPD), which includes use innovative and agile production methods and services, to implement the project by working in groups and to document the solution in a project report. To give the students a common understanding of key challenges and developments in the field and to induce a shared feeling of belonging to the study programme.

Learning objectives


  • Knowledge about basic organizational theory
  • Knowledge about IDP in order to identify relevant contextual perspectives of a given technology
  • Knowledge about project management in a long-term problem based project (in this case 2-3 months)
  • Knowledge of methodological consideration to describe the theoretical and empirical foundation of the project
  • Must have knowledge about how modern innovation, production and service technology can be used to solve a specific problem
  • Must have knowledge about commonly technologies and approaches for innovative and agile production and service
  • Must have knowledge about commonly occurring production and service processes.
  • Must have knowledge about the use of modern innovation, production and service technologies
  • Must know how use a programming language to control mechanic or electronic components
  • Must know how to use typical programming syntaxes such as conditional branching, loops, etc.     


  • Analyze individual as well as organizational processes by scientifically recognized concepts and methods
  • Organize and manage a longer-term project considering group and supervisor collaboration
  • Structure and communicate the reflections and results of the problem based project work; orally, graphically and in writing
  • Must be able to work in a team
  • Must be able to identify and define a problem suitable for a project involving innovation, agile production and service technologies
  • Must be able to identify classic approaches in existing production and service implementations and compare these with modern approaches.
  • Must be able to choose and use a specific approaches for innovative and agile production and service
  • Must be able to plan a systematic test of a chosen production or service technology
  • Must be able to discuss/assess the quality of the technology choice in a wider context
  • Must be able to program basic programs


  • Take responsibility of one’s own learning during a longer-termed project period and be able to generalize the gained experiences
  • Must have competencies for discussing and comparing classical production and service technologies vs. modern technological approaches
  • Must have competences in document and discuss the wider market related implications of a real life application
  • Must have competences to coordinate the project, to present the results and communicate the results
  • Shall have basic programing skills.

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.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 10 ECTS project module the expected workload is 300 hours for the student.
