Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Activities and procedures related to the operation and maintenance of robotic workplaces. Solution of operational conditions of workplaces with ABB robots.

Teaching methods

Project work


Students will be acquainted with activities related to the operation of robotic workplaces, management of operational documentation, verification of functionality of workplace safety features and training of workplace staff. Further, aspects of maintenance, service and improvement of workplaces will be discussed as well as definition of responsibilities in relation between supplier and operator of workplace. The commissioning and takeover of the workplace is also an important stage.
