Learning objectives


  • Have gained knowledge of theories of quality control; business processes and supply chains
  • Have gained knowledge of project planning and control as well as techniques for this
  • Have gained knowledge of IT-systems for project planning and control
  • Have gained knowledge of financial control of activities in engineer/manufacture to order companies with long project durations.


  • Be able to understand quality control in relation to the company’s business processes and analyse an organisation’s need for quality control emphasising the supply chain, as well as give suggestions to changes and improvements of parts of or the entire system
  • Be able to understand financial control of activities in engineer/manufacture to order companies. This includes: liquidity control, financial capacity control and calculations for planning, control and follow-up on the company’s order-based production
  • Be able to understand resource-constrained project management problems and plan the execution of projects under constraints (e.g. budgetary, time, resource), including the use of methods for project planning and control
  • Be able to understand how IT-systems can support business processes and work flows in project-driven companies.


  • Be able to design quality and project management systems in companies with order based production while taking into account how such systems interact with a company’s core activities and other control systems, especially the financial control systems
  • Be able to specify projects and constraints as well as problems which may arise in project-driven companies
  • Be able to use the attained knowledge in regards to how companies develop quality control systems.

  • Lectures
  • Class work
  • Project work
  • Workshops
  • Exercises (alone and in groups)
  • Teacher feedback
  • Reflection on content
  • Portfolio work.
