Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Analyzing the requirements of the client and their transformation into a detailed list of requirements. Determination of other parameters for the design of a robotic workplace - completion of a requirements list to specify the task. Impact of automation / robotic automation on the production process. Sequence of activities for preparation of quotation for supply of automation. Process of design and implementation of automation / robotic workplace. Basic awareness of related legislation.

Teaching methods

Project work


Students will learn the basic activities and design procedures of automated and robotic workplaces. System integration will be discussed from the phase of obtaining and analyzing requirements for automation by the client, adding these basic requirements to the form of a detailed requirements list, through the phase of designing the workplace concept, creating a bid budget and planning activities and resources. All other activities leading to the handover and commissioning of the workplace will be mentioned for information as well. However, these will be discussed in detail in other related subjects.
