Lectures during the summer semester 2021

The courses of the DiK will be held as online teaching in the summer semester 2021. The lectures will be digitally broadcasted and supplemented by additional digital materials such as demonstrations and exercises.

Online teaching starts in week 15 (from 12.04.2021) and takes place on the weekdays and at the times specified in the schedule (see TUCaN). The available room details for the individual dates in TUCaN represent the original attendance planning and will be replaced by the online teaching. The technical access to the online teaching takes place via Moodle.

The DiK broadcasts the lectures in the summer semester 2021 via livestream. You will find a link to attend the live lecture in the respective Moodle course of the event in the corresponding week. The link leads you to the video platform YouTube, which is used for the live stream.

In this lecture different principles, methods and tools for product and process modelling are presented. For instance principles of system technology, hierarchic structuring and modelling are reviewed. The methods of model design and its specification are demonstrated and discussed. Systematic data modelling is being presented in view of ISO 10303 “Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data” by use of SADT, EXPRESS and EXPRESS-G. The concepts of process modelling are explained with the help of business process modelling with EPK and BPMN2. Further focuses of this lecture are object orientated modelling with UML as well as the new methods of communication in terms of Industrie 4.0. Particular emphasis within the lecture is on deepening theoretical knowledge with the help of practical examples and smaller exercises.

Learning Targets:

  • Understanding the relation between functions, data and process modelling
  • Knowledge about the benefits of modelling techniques for business process optimisation
  • Knowledge about the implementation of product and process models in industrial applications

The lecture is for students of the following study programmes:

  • Master-Studiengang Mechanical and Process Engineering
  • Bachelor-Studiengang Computational Mechanical and Process Engineering
  • Diplom-/Master-Studiengang Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen Fachrichtung Maschinenbau (Wi-MB)
