The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+2S (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 1
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam 100% (120 min.)

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

DFMME-1a1 (P610-0445) Mechanical Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 1, mandatory course, Specialization Industrial Production
MAM_19_IP_1.08.IP1 (P241-0055) Engineering and Management, Master, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 1, mandatory course, Specialization Industrial Production
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Jürgen Griebsch
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Griebsch

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have learned to understand the manufacturing processes in their context, i.e. their sequential integration into process sequences and production cycles.
They will be aware of technological and economic interrelationships in order to select - depending on lot sizes and total purchase quantities - the processes that will lead to the best results with regard to accuracy with drawings, feasibility, quality and supplier reliability.
Students will be able to evaluate and calculate components.
They will be familiar with the interrelationships and processes inherent in project management.
Students will have learned the basics of different management methods and will be able to place them in the context of different, company-specific conditions.
