Simulation of Supply Systems in Production

Event type
Tutorials (master´s degree)
Contact persons Fabian Borst M. Sc.
Michael Frank M. Sc.
13.3.-17.3.2023 Block event (event week)
20.3.-24.3.2023 Final project
Exam date: To be announced

The tutorial takes place full-time. During the duration of the tutorial, only very limited further examinations (e.g. written or oral examinations) can be taken. If necessary, this must be coordinated with the department in advance. The decision on exam participation during the tutorial period is made at the discretion of the department with the aim of equal treatment of all students.
Due to a limited number of participants, registration in TUCaN must first be clarified with Fabian Borst M. Sc., via email. There is no collective registration possible.
There are 15 places for the tutorial, another ten latecomers will be accepted on the waiting list.
  • The main aim of the tutorial is to learn about simulation as a possible tool to support decision making in planning processes(design and operation strategies of factory energy systems). The focus of the tutorial is primarily on companies in the metal processing industry.
  • Previous knowledge of production engineering, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, building services engineering and simulation of technical systems is helpful, but is not considered a prerequisite for participation.
