Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be familiar with the essential influencing factors of logistics-compatible factory planning. They will be able to determine location criteria (including international criteria) and process it in a systematic location selection, design logistics processes and key figures for factory planning and, based on this, create qualified space requirement and cost estimates. They will be familiar with the current procedures in the construction planning and tendering phases of factory buildings and will be able to carry out negotiation and contract award procedures. Students will be able to perform dimensioning tasks for factory buildings and logistics and carry out logistic bottleneck analyses with computer-aided simulation systems. They will be proficient managing and monitoring delivery times for structural and technical facilities and their commissioning and acceptance.
