Module Code:STAT6008
 
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Chemical & Process Eng
Valid From: Semester 2 - 2016/17 ( January 2017 )
Module Delivered in 2 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: David Goulding
Module Author: CILIAN O SUILLEABHAIN
Module Description: This module provides an introduction to methods, concepts, and theories associated with lean manufacturing, including topics such as Total Quality Management (TQM) and Six Sigma. Techniques such as Just in Time and Kanban, are explained. Decision making and problem solving tools such as control charts, process flow diagrams, Pareto charts, and fishbone charts are explained.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Explain the approaches to, concepts, and theories of Lean Manufacturing, including key aspects of Just in Time and Six Sigma.
LO2 Apply World Class Manufacturing (WCM) techniques to effect continuous improvement.
LO3 Apply Analytical Troubleshooting (ATS) techniques to technical problem solving and decision making.
LO4 Explain people management issues and discuss how they can be addressed.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
No recommendations listed
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
