- Give more guidelines how to work with experimental simulation and with evaluation of runs with different improvements.» (The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer)

- I think the teaching need to be improved how to use the statitics in autostat. The program is not very good and it is hard to know how to get good graphs from autostat. for example how the buffer increase over time and so on. It also need to be clerlyfied how a change in the code change the random streams...due to this .-- a change in code give you new output...» (Some extent)
- The DES programming lectures could have been earlier in the course, especially the introduction to the conveyors.» (Some extent)
- The connection between some of the guest lecturers and the main topic is a little bit unclear (Jonas Laring, Karin Östergren)» (Large extent)

7. Do you consider that the lectureres have an adequate knowledge of the English language, in order to give good and informative lectures?

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


- It feels that the quality of the lectures would increase if the teachers could handle the language better. It takes much longer time for them to say what they want.»
- not attended need to be one option»
- Did not attend at Hans Sjöberg"s lecture»
- Everyone is simply great. Great team.»
- Bertil should definately improve his english!!! And talking about him, it is a mystery why he have a lecture at all? He is a funny man, but the content of his lecture is a big joke!»

- Still, too weak guidelines in the project. I mean, where do you stop, you can imporve forever! And what test designs are good choices?» (Good)
- It was very interesting and the teaching and course administration felt well prepared.» (Good)
- Very useful» (Excellent)

22. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The project»
- The project.»
- most.»
- Project as examination form, but with better guidelines.»
- the project»
- most of it...»
- Anders and Björn»
- The presentation and the project.»
- more lectures about coding is absolutely necessary.»
- project»
- The project and the knowledge test. And the lab assistents»
- The simulation project»
- Björn and Anders as lecturers!»
- project, scientific paper presentation and knowledge test. try to introduce one or two lab excercise and then start the project.»
- The project»
- organization of lectureres and homepage. And the humor in class of course :)»

23. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The project should be handed out earlier. Björn and Anders should be present more during lab time towards the end of the course. The extra tasks should have a stronger connection to the lectures, especially the ordering point.»
- Better guidelines. Change Bertil as teacher to someone else, more confident with his/her English.»
- lectures by Rolf and Bertil. If they cannot improve their english, they try really hard but it gets to slow to stay interested..»
- the autostat and how the randonness in you model can change if you make small changes in the code»
- The last lecture from SIK»
- Karin Östergren (SIK) has to be more informed to next year about what we are studying and what she is suposed to talk about. This lecture colud be much better.»
- add conveyor to hand-in.»
- LCA-lecture»
- Earlier release of the project.»
- Handout the project earlier or try to decrease it a bit. The two lectures with Bertil felt almost the same, maybe put it together to just one and put in one more lecture about AutoStat. The lecture with Karin Östergren felt irrelevant in the last week of this course. »
- Take away Bertils part of the course. Feels like it doesn"t have anything to do with this course. I don"t understand why he has to be involved in this course.»
- i think nothing»
- Don´,t go to Miami for, or if you have to, some of the helpstudents must be able to answer some important questions like: when you come back?»

24. Additional comments

- Very useful course.»
- should be some way to verify and validate the model in project, to know if the code is somewhat right. maybe make it more "real", perhaps model after a photo of a production. »
- Good course!»
- none»
- the course was a good first step towards simulation in production system. the tuitors were nice and helping.»
