Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will well informed in principles and conceptions using for operative, tactical and strategic operations management, will be able to analyses, evaluate, design and improve production processes, use methods and tools of the production planning and control, capacity planning and inventory control in production processes.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


The subject is focused on the management of production processes using advanced managerial decision-making tools. Sub-sections are devoted to modern tools, methods and concepts for managing and optimizing production systems at all managerial levels. The orientation is also focused on the use of tools based on fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms and neural networks in the production control process.
