The course is part of the discipline of industrial mechanical plants and in addition to providing an initial overview of modern industrial plants, it aims to fill some gaps currently present in the training process towards the concept of Industry 4.0 and Digital Factory. Today, in fact, the industrial challenge is no longer on the single machine, or on several machines, but on its integration into the overall factory system.
The course aims to provide an integrated view of the production system / complex starting from references to mechanical plants and addressing problems and practices of sustainable manufacturing based on the reduction of input production factors, waste and treatment costs, improving efficiency, increasing production performance, pursuing greater competitiveness. Part of the course will cover the digital evolution of production systems with particular reference to the Industry 4.0 paradigm, and the analysis of issues related to improving the efficiency of manufacturing systems.
The objective to be achieved is twofold: on the one hand, to present students with a systemic approach to analysing the complexity of an industrial plant; on the other, to provide them with the methodologies for analysing, designing and dimensioning the individual components that make up an industrial plant.
Students will also be "dropped" into the problems of two very different real industrial plants: one for the continuous production of fuels and the other for the small-scale production of magnets. Thanks to the contact with experts working in these two realities, the students will also be able to acquire specific practical knowledge on maintenance aspects for the first plant and quality management for the second plant.
Individual study, attendance and participation in the proposed training activities will enable the student to
- have a systemic approach in the analysis of an industrial plant
- design and manage production systems, specifically: *) sizing a production batch *) balancing a line; *) sizing and designing storage systems; *) designing some service systems of an industrial plant
The course consists of 6 CFUs of face-to-face lectures and practical exercises also in the classroom, totalling 52 hours.
The course is delivered using traditional teaching methods, i.e. face-to-face lectures with the aid of the blackboard and slides with video projector. In addition, the course includes, in parallel with the theory lessons, numerous exercises during which students will be asked to solve real problems in the design and management of production systems. The presentation of the results of the exercises takes the form of a moment in which the students communicate not only the problems they have faced but also the solutions that have arisen for these problems.

The final assessment is aimed at verifying the actual learning of the topics covered during the course.
It involves taking an oral test that will cover all the topics covered during the course and the exercises carried out in class during the course. At the end of the oral examination, the committee will award the student a mark: the student who has achieved a mark of at least 18/30 will have passed the examination.
