Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Ability - to classify a principles of physical and numerical modeling - to interpret these principles in methods of production processes analysis - to model a subjects response on processes parameters - to differentiate methods of analysis following their application - to describe modelling method - to apply modelling methods in manufacturing processes

Teaching methods



The aim of the course is based on previous knowledge, to deepen knowledge of the specification of manufacturing processes and systems using different procedures and methods of implementation. The subject is implemented at two levels, the solution of the model structure of production processes with interactive models linked to specific technological processes of thermomechanical processing and metallurgy.
