Classic Production and Service Technologies


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.

Learning objectives


  • Knowledge about typical work processes in a problem based project.
  • Knowledge about the basic principles in scientific work e.g. academic honesty.
  • Must have knowledge of what the subject of production development includes.
  • Must have knowledge about the concept of contemporary production and services vs. the classic approaches to production and services.
  • Must be able to understand the concept of problem based learning.


  • Analyze individual as well as organizational learning processes
  • Organize a short period (less than a moth) of collaboration in-group and with supervisor
  • Communicate the reflections and results of the problem based project work; orally, graphically and in writing
  • Must be able to apply problem based learning in group work
  • Must be able to perform a trade-off analysis of technological choices


  • Be able to reflect on the problem-oriented and project-oriented study form and work process.
  • Be able to communicate the results obtained from the project work in a project report.
  • Be able to collaborate on the problem area's project work and submit a joint presentation of the project work results.
  • Be able to reflect on ways of communicating information to others (written, verbally and graphically)

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 5 ECTS project module the expected workload is 150 hours for the student.
