The course covers an overview of the entire field of product realization, with a specialization in the production phase. The course focuses on those groups of industrial manufacturing methods used to give a material a desired shape and characteristics. For each group of methods conditions, equipment, tools, characteristics and results are covered. The method groups included are plastic molding, casting, machining, assembly, powder-based, polymer-based and laser-based methods.

The course also deals with the production system design and production development, where the links between production performance and costs is crucial. Since the material is of great importance for the result of processing operations, the course starts with basic materials technology. Further more, it is explained how sustainability in production can be influenced through both consciuos choices of methods and materials.
