Course content
Transformation and technical systems and processes; technical products as technical systems enabling transformation processes; properties and quality of technical systems; structures of technical systems; main principles of achieving the required properties of technical systems: "Design for X "; engineering design activities and their rationalization; engineering design of machines as a transformation process the aim of which is a technical system with the required properties. The acquired theoretical knowledge is creatively applied to examples taken from practice. Topics of lectures and seminars according to weeks see Courseware.

professional knowledge
Knowledge in the range of the previous study at the university is supposed. No necessary subjects.
learning outcomes
After graduation of this course students are able effectively and efficiently: - to specify systematically life cycle business and inherent requirements on designed technical product considered as technical systems (TS) - to manage systematically engineering design project based on specific requirements - to combine theory based, instructive, intuitive and trial creative methods during design engineering of TS - to work in interdisciplinary team during integrated TS development and to utilize knowledge, tools and experts from other technical, natural, social and other supporting science and practice fields - to analyze, compare and evaluate systematically fulfilment of systematically specified requirements and design competitiveness of the designed or existing TS with other comparable TS including relevant risk indicators - to document and present systematically procedure and results of the designed TS, and thus among others develop also step by step a system design engineering knowledge base in this way.
