AbstractExtension to course 363-0445-00 Production and Operations Management.
ObjectiveThis course strengthens the learning objectives of the POM core course (see separate syllabus). After completing this course,
• students can use lean thinking to improve the productivity of production processes,
• students can conduct fundamental process mapping analyses.
• students can select and implement many lean production techniques,
• students can select and use problem-solving tools and methods, and
• students understand the role of management in manufacturing.
ContentThis course is an extension to the course 363-0445-00 Production and Operations Management. Participants get an extra deep dive into key concepts of POM.

The lectures in this course are highly interactive. To pass this course, students need to complete a course assignment in pairs. The course assignment consists of two parts: preparations for the lecture and a reflection essay after the lecture
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course (1ECTS) is offered as an extension to the D-MTEC core course 363-0445-02 Production and Operations Management (3 ECTS). To take this course, you have to follow the core course.

Due to its practical format, this course is limited to ca 30 students. Note that we offer this course primarily for students who need the extra credit (total of 4 ECTS) to complete their study plans. This will typically be students from D-MAVT and, in some cases, exchange students. Students from all other departments (inducing D-MTEC) are welcome to apply to the lecturer. If capacity, applicants may receive written acceptance by the teaching team to join.
