Manufacturing Engineering – Basic Automation

when 5 August 2019 - 16 August 2019
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC

Learn the basics of automated and computerized production systems, and attain knowledge about how they can be mathematically analyzed in order to set up performance metrics.

You will get acquainted to some of the building blocks of an automated production system via hands-on exercises of programming a PLC and a Robot, and learn how the IT system is supporting and integrating the automation.

Additionally, you will attain knowledge about how to manage and implement automation by the use of a project model and the use of simulation tools to create digital models of your future automation system.

The course will provide you with competences required for an overall validation of automation engineering issues through insight and knowledge whit in manufacturing IT and basic control technology.

Lectures will introduce the students to the concepts and technologies within automated production systems. During the course the students will perform a number of case studies through which they can test their knowledge, train their skills and develop their competences.
