Training course for MPA (Modular Plant Architecture)

Within the MPA (Modular Plant Architecture) project a training case for teaching the fundamentals of MPA and the method application to professionals from industry as well as to engineering students was developed.

The training case is designed in two sub modules with the objective to carry it out either in two 1/2-day or one 1-day seminar.

Within the training course, presentations regarding the methodological fundamentals of MPA and the practical method application as well as participative exercises for understanding and developing Modular Plant Architectures are carried out. The practical method application in participative exercises form the biggest block of the course. They cover the main contents of results developed in the MPA project.

In detail, the objective of the training course is to teach its participants how to develop and deploy modular production structures by the following examplary targets: How to enable volume scalable and product flexible production equipment? How to standardize reusable production equipment for different environmental requirements such as varying automation degree, varying local requirements in global production networks etc.

The focus chosen for the training course is the design of production segments, production lines and single machines in medium to large series production.
