Course detail

Production Management

FP-Rrv1KAcad. year: 2020/2021

The aim of the course is to provide theoretic, operational and organizational and management categories, concepts, models and management techniques, terminology and methodology of incomes, transformation and output items of product process. The course provides the knowledge of techniques of utilization of available resources in a dynamically evolving conditions of a market relations and ways of rational use of human factors in production. The subject provides knowledge How to use linkages of engineering and production process for realization changes by acquiring of required outputs and efficiency in terms of strategy, tactics and surgery.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student will acquire knowledge of and skills with the data bases for production planning. Measuring the productivity and production costs. Productivity of production. Operating control of production. Production capacity balance. Calculations of projecting a production system. Technical–economic standards of consumption. Order progression.Components production working time. Working time of a complicated product. Technical servicing of production. Tools management. Care for production base. Totally productive maintenance. Energy management, production logistics. IT/ICT scheduling supported production process.


Student is expected to have the following knowledge and skills when he/she begins in course of Production Management: basic economic approaches (macroeconomics indicators, market characteristics - demand, supply, costs curves etc.). Students have to be familiar with the economy of company and specific mathematic discipline, i.e. decision-making. Students are expected to have the knowledge acquired within the bachelors study programme in the area of production planning in specific manufacture sector (working out technical documentation - project, construction and technology of a new or innovated product).


The acquired knowledge and data are the basis for the follow-up course cost management.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Guided consultations are devoted mainly to consultation and control tasks assigned to a separate processing. This method of teaching is dominant in distance study,

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

The condition for the implementation of the exam is the elaboration of a seminar paper, which will be assigned by the teacher to the first consultation and electronically on the FP network and the handover of the thesis to the last consultation in writing.
Credit obtains a student of compulsory participation in laboratory exercises and mandatory participation in a tour in the production of industrial organization.
The exam is written and oral. The written exam consists of a separate decision on the subject as well as the use of mathematical functions. Its length is 50 minutes. Oral exam verifies the classification result and refines it.
The student received the classification grade E, must demonstrate knowledge and decision-theoretic approaches eg. Oral supplementation.

The main objective of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge and skills necessary for production process management in relation to the development trends in the field of production management in the world and global manufacturing. Students will master the latest techniques and methodology of projecting, planning and controlling of production systems under control. They will learn how to make decisions about the manufacturing programme and securing of resources, how to the realize production process with respect to material and capability resources, time smoothness and economic efficiency, as well as performances of production processes, production systems and production results

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Participation in consultations is desirable, underlines the student's interest in acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills, in the form of questions during consultations.
