Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to design a plant layout with the following stations for the manufacture of a product: Separating, measuring, force fitting, joining, testing, marking, shipping.
Students will divide the plant layout into individual stations and create one station (Smart Cube) per project group of 4 people (as a rule) in CAD,  including a parts list.
They will be able to evaluate which components, parts, etc. should be procured via purchasing (buy) or in-house production (make).
Students will be familiar with the application of the Smart Cube control and selected/applied handling systems.

SMART CUBES project; group-oriented project work with the following tasks:
-        Creating a CAD model
-        Creation of a parts list including a make-or-buy analysis
-        Basics of procurement processes and exemplary applications
-        Starting the production of components in the industrial production lab
-       Material and information flow

Teaching methods/Media:
Seminaristic, interactive instruction.
The "Smart Cubes" project is based on a project handbook that is prepared at the beginning of the course and continuously subject to a target-performance comparison. This will take place in regular workshops with all students or group-specific.
The project will be carried out in teams in order to strengthen social skills, as well as methodological and personal competence.
