- Assistance was limited during the programming phase of the project due to different programming styles, but this is to be expected so there is no problem.» (Some extent)
- Professor just gave outline outline to all important topics and its up to students to grasp and take it forward and develop of their own. Overall I enjoyed the course. » (Large extent)
- The teaching has been focusing on the students and all lectures has been easy to follow and a summary with details of whats expected from the student has been presented, which all of us has feelt. That I think has pushed us to work more and to have a higher motivation of working with the course. » (Great extent)

7. To what extent were you satisfied with lectures given by the following lecturers?

Grade your answer in a scale from Excellent (5) to Poor (1) for each lecturer.


- Gosh! Am I supposed to remember who is who?»
- I liked the direct support that lectures gave to making simulation excercises. Many case examples given in the lectures were on the other hand very nice to have in order to see how simulation can be used, but on the other hand sometimes it felt like not-informative, not-educating. Meaning that it was nice to see the model, but that time could have been spent more wisely. »
- Every teacher has done a good job. And i believe that Anders and Björn has done a great work with the lectures and it"s "red line". »
- I wish I knew everybody"s names...»

- long queues: After a change of the code in 20sec, waiting time for the supervisor sometimes 20minutes.» (Rather poor)
- Depends on the question and who you ask.» (Rather poor)
- Ibland var inte handläggarna bra på att svara! De orkade inte hitta felet typ! Men överlag var det kanon med hjälp. » (Rather good)
- But it was a bit tricky sometimes when different teachers helped you with the programming. Everybody has a certain opinion and keeps changing the code haha» (Very good)

- depnds on task for final project (see milestone)» (The covered about the right amount)
- Less than one week after finishing the tutorial or the modeling exercise, we had a lecture on the exact same subject than what the lab exercises taught us. So we are not learning anything from these lectures when they are placed after the lab exercises.» (The covered about the right amount)
- But actually, we didn"t really learn until we started programming by ourselves.» (The covered about the right amount)

- The time alloted was too little for some the papers with greater complexity (digital factory), while for others it was too much» (Not good)
- There was way too little time for each presentation. Very knowledge got through apart from the papers I read myself. » (Not good)
- I understand that all the articles presented contained very basic information that all students should know after this course. Presentation just was not right way of bringing the information. My hands were full with simulation assignment and presentation felt like an artificial must-add-some-extra-task thing. There was no time to prepare it which made many presentations poor, which led to the fact that I learned hardly anything from other"s presentatios. Contents of articles could be lectioned to students by lecturers instead. » (Not good)
- it was ok to read but hard to present» (Not good)
- I didn"t like the text "The Virtual Factory" which was the one my group had. It had surprisingly poor grammar for its level and was hard to explain I"d say.» (Acceptable)
- It would have been easier to prepare for it if the hand in of the base model had not been on the same day.» (Acceptable)
- Better to have the presentations earlier during the course so that we don"t have 2 deadlines on the same day (Base Model and Presentation).» (Acceptable)
- Good way to give feedback!» (Excellent)
- Seems like some exchange students were not as used to oral presentations» (Excellent)

- Split of work: 1) programming 2) presentation and report --> not good to reach course goals» (Rather well)
- Different master programmes means finding time together was harder than expected. But it went well.» (Rather well)

- Maybe one of the better courses I"ve had at Chalmers. » (Excellent)

22. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Projektet! Allt man lärde sig var av att göra fel och få reda hur man gör rätt! »
- The coding project with reference to a real life production. Good examples!»
- The intensity of the lab sessions, the difficulty of the project, examples of applications of the software»
- The teaching model, such as the tutorial, the project and online resources etc. »
- All topics should be preserved from my point of view. »
- the project of a bit less difficulty»
- The tutorials and the big emphasis on the final project. That teaches the best. »
- Modeling excercise, lectures»
- The project.»
- The project and the teaching methods. »
- The project, the lectures and the knowledge test.»

23. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Bättre organisation kring redovisningen av de literaturen vi läste! Kändes bara att vissa ville bara göra det och gå. Jag som lyssnare fattade inget!»
- The framework for the coding project as described earlier.»
- None»
- Scientific paper presentation can be done earlier in the course so that it can help students to proceed with their projects more efficiently.»
- scientific paper presentation date should be earlier, since it came at the same date with base model approval this time»
- At least double the time used for each paper presentation.»
- The lab assistants should better prepared for the different extra tasks, like the economic task this year. We were advised to use Excel, but in the end we managed to do it with Automod in a very convinient way. A lab assisstant should know that it was doable in Automod»
- remove the presentations and select case examples with more care so that there would be less of them but more informative ones.»
- See answers above.»
- Maybe skip the paper presentation, it didn"t give much»
- Move the date of paper presentation. 4 deadlines at that week - it"s too much.»

24. Additional comments

- Mycket bra kurs överlag. Det är sällan man får jobba med problem som är verklighetsbaserade på Chalmers! Men den här kursen tog verkligen upp verkliga problem i produktionen. »
- Thanks for the well planned and implemented course!»
