Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results. Further information on this link
By the end of this subject, students will be able to obtain: 1. Knowledge and understanding of the key aspect related to automated manufacturing systems. 2. A systematic understanding of the multidisciplinary context of automated production systems. 3. The ability to model and analyze manufacturing systems in the Arena simulation software. 4. The ability to search for literature related to a real visit to a production system. 5. The ability to combine theory and practice in the programing of the simulation of a manufacturing systems example. 6. The ability of work in group for visiting a real production system and relate that visit to the theoretical sessions. 7. Knowledge about the aspects related to environmental impact and sustainable production, and to relate these aspects with the group work.

Learning activities and methodology
- Theoretical lectures oriented for the acquisition of theoretical knowledge. - Classes of problems in small groups for case studies. - Individual tutorials and students' personal work, aimed at the acquisition of skills related to the subject program. - Laboratory practices: 4 sessions of 1'5 hours. During the lab sessions students will learn to analyze a production process by means of a simulator. Students submit an assignment that will be marked.
