OVERVIEW

Integrated Product Support (IPS) is a uniform, iterative and integrated approach to the management and activities required for: engineering/design specifications, operation, maintenance, material requirements and training of a product, throughout its life cycle.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By means of theoretical bases and project-based learning, devise methodologies for developing an Integrated Product Support project. Starting from the definition of the functional breakdown, through the definition of maintenance and operational policies, develop the main related logistic studies (including RAM-T, FMEA, RCM, LORA) to design the engineering processes for the operational support of a complex system

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

IPS & LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT
The main purpose of the course is to provide, through theoretical foundations and project-based learning, the knowledge of the methodologies necessary for the development of an Integrated Product Support project.

Starting from the definition of the functional breakdown and associated logistic studies of a complex system, apply the specifications to structure and produce the logistic data according to the standard.

The theoretical-practical laboratory aims to enable the student to acquire basic knowledge on the specifications and production processes of logistics data.
Attendance and active participation in lectures/laboratory activities together with individual study will allow the student to:
- know the process and the specifications applied to the Integrated Product Support activities of a complex system during its life cycle.
- apply rules and concepts designed to structure logistic data and understand their integration.
- acquire correct technical terminology to describe methods, processes and rules for the production of logistic data.

PREREQUISITES

No particular prerequisites required

TEACHING METHODS

The course consists of 12 lessons, of 4 hours each, where laboratory parts are included, for a total of 48 hours.
The laboratory activities will alternate with the theoretical part putting into practice the concepts studied.
There are no group laboratory activities, each student will work individually on his own personal project.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

1. Introduction to the IPS & LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT course.
2. Definition and description of the Integrated Product Support and the Life Cycle of a complex system.
3. Introduction to S-Series specifications and the logistics data production process.
4. Introduction to the SIMPLICIO SW for the management and production of logistic data.
5. Description of the S3000L - LSA specification (theory and practice).
6. Description of the S2000M - Materials specification (theory and practice).

8. Introduction and overview of the remaining specifications of the S-Series.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

All the slides used during the lessons are available on aul@web.
In general, the notes taken during the lessons and the material on aul@web are sufficient for the preparation of the exam.
