Teaching description

Conoscenza degli elementi di base degli impianti industriali; degli elementi di base della programmazione matematica; degli elementi di base della gestione dei dati; di Excel; degli elementi di base di Tecnologia Meccanica; degli elementi di base dei Sistemi di Lavorazione e della Produzione Industriali, conosceva sistemi MRP, MPS (vedi sezione OTHER USEFUL INFORMATIONS per esempi di materiali disponibile sui motori di ricerca).

The course examines the basic concepts of what to produce, when to produce, how much to produce, etc. to create finished products. Throughout the course, we will discuss the capabilities of ERP and/or MRP system(s) as it applies to production planning and scheduling. In the course several industrial cases and experiences will be illustrated.

This course will teach you how to improve, manage, and regulate all aspects of a successful manufacturing operations infrastructure. You’ll develop the ability to design and oversee an effective master production schedule that makes the best possible use of your manufacturing resources. You’ll discover the basics of materials requirements planning, including considerations like lead time offsetting, bill of materials, and determining manufacturing order quantities. You’ll understand how to apply the principles of capacity planning and management to determining capacity requirements and to matching capacity with materials scheduling and input/output control. You’ll learn the best way to develop and implement a winning production activity control system that reduces WIP, inventories, and lead times, guarantees the correct execution of material plans, and ultimately meets all of your customer service objectives.
