Fit for the industry

HTW Dresden

Germany is still experiencing a severe lack of specialists, especially engineers. Hence, future manufacture engineers are being prepared for an optimal start in their work life by study contents that focus on practice. Students of manufacturing technology at the University of Applied Sciences in Dresden learn how to determine exact planning times and how to select production alternatives with regard to materials, tools and machines. Therefore, IT-based calculation for single parts and assembly groups are of great importance concerning intended cost savings and an increase of productivity. As a planning- and calculation software tested in the practical field, HSplan is a useful instrument used at university.

Estimate planning times realistically

Westsächsische Hochschule Zwickau

Employees responsible for the preparation of work schedules and single part calculations or assembly groups rely on experienced values and estimations. However, modern, pre-configured and rule-based software systems enable them to calculate close to production – especially with regard to unique specimen. By including these innovative systems into university curricula - especially in the CAP-training for future engineers and industrial engineers - students are provided with a piece of “practical reality” on their way. They are explained the coherences between the design of a product, its various production parameters and the respective planning times.

Costing versions give insight into production preparation

Technische Hochschule Wildau [FH] - TH Wildau

Many production companies view it as highly important that their career starters already have the requisite knowledge which was imparted to them by technical universities of applied sciences. TH Wildau uses HSi software solutions which enable the creation of work plans, preliminary costing and version evaluation in many ways.

Transparency when creating work and assembly plans

Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz

Since summer semester 2019 the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz provided their mechanical engineering students with a special planning module for assembly tasks by HSi. This module supplements the existing HSi software solutions for work planning and version evaluation of production orders which were successfully introduced in 2009.

TU Bergakademie Freiberg integrates HSplan in its curriculum

TU Bergakademie Freiberg

Quick, cost-efficient and needs-based production is the core business of industrial manufacturing. In order to achieve effective results, the use of IT-based work planning is indispensable. Consquently, preparation of working plans plays a major role in engineering studies. In this way, students gain an insight into interdependencies and effects of adjusted parameters on the manufacturing process. They traceably understand the influence of tool machines, processing methods, tools and cutting values.
