Faculty of Mechanical Engineering - Cooperation with industry


The Institute of Technological Processes, Automation and Integrated Manufacturing System cooperates with the industry in the following fields of study:

  • Analysis and organization of production processes for existing or new manufacturing systems, business process mapping for implementation of ERP systems, planning and reorganization of production cells disposition, and enterprise reorganization projects.
  • Analysis before implementation, modernization of existing production systems, design of new plants and systems, production flow planning, balance of assembly lines; production sequencing and scheduling rhythm.
  • Analytic and approximate methods of production cost analysis, design and technology specification preparation with CAD/CAM system, design and reorganization of workplace, production and supply chain management systems for small and middle enterprises.
  • Creation of types and modular systems design in machine construction. Integration of CAD/CAM and graphics application for design tasks. Parametric record of construction.
  • Research and standardization of work processes; mapping of business and production processes; software for supporting the technical and organizational production preparation; selection and implementation of computer simulation systems; creation of simulation models; performance and implementation of mapping, transformation and exchange of data systems; advice and consultation - analysis of needs and implementation of MRP/ERP systems; training and consultancy in the application of Lean Management and Lean Manufacturing methods and tools; design, creation and development of production planning and control; design and construction of models in rapid prototyping technology (FDM and Objet technology).
  • Design and development of production scheduling software, support software for technical and organizational production preparation. Mapping and design of manufacturing improvements.
  • Analysis, modelling and computer simulation in organization and reorganization of robotic and automated manufacturing systems and industrial logistics systems.
