Students will acquire the specific vocabulary relating to production management. It is expected that, by the end of this course, the student can communicate, orally and in writing, also by means of solutions of numerical problems, the main content of the course (for example: MPS, MRP, MRP II and so on.), by commonly used tools in the industry, such as tables, block diagrams or flowcharts.
Students who have attended the course will be able to deepen their knowledge in the field of production management, through the autonomous consultation of specialized texts, scientific or for practitioner’s journals or, even outside of the topics covered tightly to class.
