1. Products/Systems design cycle
  2. Cost management systems
  3. Target costing
  4. Cost estimation methods

Main goals:

  • Why integrate cost as design variable (product or manufacturing system).
  • How to select the best cost estimation method depending on a specific need.
  • How to implement and use estimation using analytic, analogical or parametric methods.
  • How to integrate cost estimation and current manufacturing strategies

Course objectives

Production systems and supply chain modelling
The objective is to learn the different models and techniques for the evaluation and optimization of production systems, supply chains organization, and different management policies. The student will learn how to:

  • evaluate the performance of production systems and supply chains.
  • use analytical model for the evaluation.
  • use a software for modelling and simulation of production systems.
  • improve the performance of the existent system from analyzed results.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of statistics and probability. Knowledge of textile production processes.

Evaluation method

Practical exam with the simulation software. Project with written report.

Teaching method

Lectures and workshops.

Course objectives
