- The project PM got updated several times without anyone knowing about it (sometimes we got messages about it, but sometimes we did not). This resulted in a lot of completely unnessecary re-work because some key info in the PM had changed or been taken away. For example, when we found out that the PM had been changed we realized that a whole days work were of no use because it was based on some information that had been changed in the PM. Another bad thing is that time the lecture was cancelled without noticing the students. Please don´,t let that happen again.» (Very badly)
- Extremely many errors in the project-pm.» (Rather badly)
- Could be more clear with the content of the DES assignment.» (Rather well)

- Very time-consuming and the project-pm had very many errors in it. The tasks in the project-PM was badly formulated giving us a hard time setting up the goals and what to achieve. Automod may be a widely used software and has a nice concept but the quality of the software itself is just worthless. There has to be a serious investigation if this software is representable for the course next year.» (Acceptable)
- It was fun doing it, but, as seen from my answer on question 9 I did not like how it was changed and updated without letting the students know. I also think that it might be good to practice some sort of data collection or calculating distribution functions.» (Quite good)
- Workload is pretty high. Think it would be better to remove one or two of the "extra tasks", and replace it with maybe something about animation. Didn"t get much learning out of doing all three extra tasks an alternative task would be more interesting.» (Quite good)
- The examination project could have been divided into part goals which would have made it easier to finish the base model.» (Quite good)
- För mycket oklarheter. annars mkt bra!» (Quite good)
- Very good. Even though it was frustrating sometimes it is the best way of learning» (Excellent)
- Maybe there was too many errors in the PM from the beginning» (Excellent)

- The supervisors did not have time to help everyone in the lab, and some times it was very long queuing time.» (Rather poor)
- Annoying that some lectures/lab-sessions were cancelled very late, but overall it worked out well.» (Rather good)
- There was too little staff sometimes in the lab» (Rather good)
- The time was not enough.» (Rather good)

- Don"t know why we were supposed to do that. It did only take up valuable time, time that could have been spend on the project instead of some lame presentation..» (Not good)
- Work load is already very high (too high actually) in this course but except for that, I think this was a good element in the course.» (Acceptable)

- he did not contribute to the project at all, but increased my workload instead» (Very poorly)
- Since the project is very time-consuming there is a major need of having a well functioning group. Can be hard to find a group member with the same ambitions. Since the project is time-consuming there should be more info on this on the lecture to mentally prepare all students.» (Rather poorly)

- It takes a lot of time, but if you use the lab hours it is not much of a problem. Also, it was fun so I didn"t mind spending time on it.» (Adequate)
- Very high workload compared to other courses. I would say that I spent 80 % of my time on this course and only 20 % on my second course. Very time consuming even though you just aim to pass the course with grade 3. Could it be a good idea to have a number of project works to choose between, depending on what grade you"re aiming for?» (Too high)
- A lot work of weekends as well as long working days in school.» (Too high)
- due to my project partner» (Too high)

- This grade would have been much higher if the administration had worked better. I really feel that I have learned much.» (Fair)
- Very good content. Really a hands on course which open doors to a new area.» (Good)
- Simulation is a good topic.» (Good)

22. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The project work and the presentations.»
- the same Helpful Spirit»
- The project and teachers.»
- Project should be preserved and more focus on it in the lectures and miner focus on the presentations. »
- The teachers were really really good, espiecally Jon.»
- projekt»

23. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Make sure the project PM is completely finished before handing it out to the students. The most preferable would be if it don´,t have to be changed at all during the course, but if it needs to be changed, make sure to tell every one about it. Also make sure that the lecturers don´,t repeat what other lecturers already have said.»
- Extra Tasks need to be more easy»
- The quality of the the project-PM and also the tasks in it as they were vaguely formulated.»
- More focus on the Project and maybe learn the students more about using the help function in AutoMod. »
- Presentations. Sure, it didn"t take up that much time but it was still something that you had to do.»
- More lectures in the beginning if the projct showing which coding commandos can be used for different siutations and so on. »
- description of the project to be more clear.»

24. Additional comments

- Fun course with good content, but the administration needs to be much better.»
- the course was really great & thanks alot for all guys that help us ..»
- Very good course and it helped a lot to realise even more that production systems is the way to be chosen. »
- Very good course.»
