International Product Realisation
MMTN10, 7,5 credits, A (Second Cycle)
Valid for: 2015/16
Decided by: Education Board E
Date of Decision: 2015-04-13
Elective for: I5-pr, M5-prr
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish
The course will enhance the understanding of running production
under different cultural, economic and technological conditions.
The knowledge will be strengthened in terms of technical analysis
and economic evaluation in conjunction with offers and pricing for
the manufacture of products with high tolerance requirements,
particularly developed in advanced and difficult to machine
materials. Furthermore, the knowledge and understanding of location
decisions of production will be strengthened.
Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must
- be able identify critical manufacturing operations for the
manufacture of a component with respect to the shape, dimension
tolerances including measure chains, surfaces and properties.
- be able to assess the technical and economic conditions in
order to manufacture a product or component under specified
conditions including different cultures, technical level, level of
education and recruitment opportunities.
- be able to assess the feasibility of an offer regarding given
technological and economic conditions.
- be able to identify production risks that may be associated
with delivery and set quality standards.
Competences and skills
For a passing grade the student must
- be able to assess the conditions and give recommendations on
the location of production to a region under given conditions.
- master and apply the basic production economy principles to
assess the cost of production of a given component.
- from a technical and economic perspective be able to compare
the conditions of production in different industrial regions in an
- be able to give advice on decisions in offering and procurement
issues regarding the own production conditions.
The course is modular and includes:
- Structural analysis for manufacturability based on industrial
case studies. Assessment and analysis of technical procurement
including tender work.
- Manufacturability and tolerance costs based on industrial case
- Strategies and principles for production location.
- International and domestic production cultures, conditions and
opportunities. The module is performed in collaboration with
representatives from different countries.
- National industry visits and case studies, including
- International industrial visits and case studies, including
- Report and presentation of industry visits in line with
existing branches in the specialization.
- Home examination, which shall be regarded as an important part
Grading scale: TH
