Construction Project – Production
level of course unit
First cycle, Bachelor
Learning outcomes of course unit
Students are able to:
identify and apply the fundamentals of the construction process.
assess and analyse the methods of construction.
differentiate between different machines and plants.
design plants also by combining groups of machines while considering additional requirements,
such as e.g. conveyor systems and devices.
consider the special characteristics of a plant with regard to the interrelatedness of
components, service and assembly.
plan, explain and design an entire plant and plant components as well as groups of machines.
They are also able to take the respective work steps into account and document them (e.g.
requirement determination, concept development, as-sessment of solutions, design / plan.
develop a plant in a structured manner that meets standards and norms while taking safety
issues into account.
consider and assess the option of variants as well as equipping and rebuilding of a plant while
taking manufacture, assembly and costs into account.
produce the entire documentation for the whole construction with its interlinked components
(e.g. specifications, functional analysis, functional specification, tech-nical drawings,
assembly instruction, documentation).
prerequisites and co-requisites
Practical design and calculation exercises to tackle practical exercises, especially with regard to the interpretation of simple connection elements, conveyor systems, ma-chine components and axes, shafts and bearings; connections and couplings and gears. Elements to support and carry machine components and to make torque transmission possible and promote it are particularly important for a successful net-work:
Types, functions and design rules as well as calculation bases of axes, shafts, bearings and
Elements to seal machine components
All elements that are also relevant for connections and conveyor technology
Couplings and brakes: structure, functions, functioning and calculatikon bases of selected
types of couplings and brakes
Belt drives: design principles and calculation bases of flat belt drives and V-belt drives as well
as of toothed belt drives
Gear mechanisms: types of gears and structure, requirements of gear tooth sys-tems, design
fundamentals and calculat
