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.
