Programming with and without charging, Programming with charging against infinite capacity, Charging against finite capacity.
Acquisition of knowledge in the production area through the development of operational management skills to understand the dynamics of processes and the competitiveness of new production systems. The same parallelism is made for the provision of services. The student will learn to apply a set of methodologies and control planning that will help to inform decisions in the universe of production management / planning.
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
Acquire knowledge to: - Identify the various factors that affect productivity, calculate indicators for their monitoring; - Identify the factors affecting the choice of the appropriate forecasting method; - Analyze and improve productive systems and their planning and control based on informed decisions. - Identify optimal production strategies; - Determine possible dates of delivery of orders to customers and order dates to suppliers; - Minimize the volumes of stocks in process of manufacture and final stocks; - Regularize the load on the various jobs.
Teaching methodologies and assessment
Being the theoretical-practical classes, the student will be allowed not only to learn through concepts and real cases demonstrated by Power Point, but also by reading and interpreting current articles and news and by solving practical cases, in view of the objectives of the chair. The evaluation will be continued with a weight of 30% taking into account the attendance and resolution of practical cases in the room and at home. The final test will have a weight of 70%. The weighted average of this one that exceeds or equal to 10 values will give right to approval. Both the mean of the evaluation continues and that of the test must be greater than or equal to 9.5 values
