Manufacturing System and Process Modelling

12 March 2018 - 16 March 2018

The aim of this module is to provide an understanding of manufacturing and its management that recognises breadth and depth of required resources and information. This is done through developing an understanding of the hierarchy of computer based modelling relevant to manufacturing, ranging from the detail of material behaviour in processed parts, through macroscopic process models to the integration of processes within manufacturing systems and higher-level business processes. On completion of this module students should have an understanding of the influence of characteristic spatial- and time scales within manufacturing systems. Students will also develop understanding of techniques appropriate for modelling the physics- and organisational aspects of manufacturing system, as well as knowledge integration issues within manufacturing systems.
