- A good introduction course to the master programme» (Very Good)
- A very interesting and helpful course. I learned a lot! The projects were a lot of fun. » (Excellent)

31. What shoud be preserved for next year

What are your suggestions on what worked well and should be kept for next year and not lost in the continuous improvements?

- The labs and factory visits we"re good.»
- Preserv the high weight on labs but alltso improve them and change the examination to a more indevidual level.»
- I think the labs and the factory visit have been the most interesting aspects in the course.»
- Excercise presentation way.»
- Factory visit was absolutely the best and most helpful. Good with different guest speakers. Keep all the projects! They were great. »
- The seminars and the factory visits. »
- Visits were great, labs are very good but too abstract sometimes. Guest lecturers were good but could be better I think. »
- All the exercises - with refinement of course.»
- Seminar to present the lab-work.»
- The exercises and the factory visit.It is the best part of the course.»
- The very practical assignments (automation of the assembly of the bookshelf) and the factory visit»
- Definitely exercises play an important role in this course and have the most learning outcomes.»
- lab works are good enough»
- The way of seminar is good, but the poster is bit small for all of students to see and noisy environment during the presentation hard to hear clearly.»
- Assignments size and importance.»
- The assignments are great. Maybe make them a larger part of the examination?»
- The factory visit»
- The open characteristics of the assignments that forces assumptions to be made. Makes for more reflection while working and more discussion during the presentations.»
- The group assignments »
- Most of the course»
- I think same course content should be there for the next year»
- The seminars with A2-posters and presentations in smaller groups.»
- The factory visit should be maintained. »

32. What should be changed to next year?

- I would like a verbal exame»
- I consider that exam should not be the 100% of the final grade. In my opinion it would be interesting, that for example, the assignments were the 50% of the grade, and the exam the rest.»
- Be strciter on the presentations/grading of the projects. »
- Skip Säfstens" book. »
- Maybe talking more about specific characteristics of what makes Toyota PS or Lean so special, maybe a project to turn something not lean into lean could be nice. Discussion of different production systems and some characteristics (jit, jis, lean, six sigma, volvo ps, tetrapak, etc.) in industry cases.»
- Overview of what the lectures should give and at what point of time these should be given. One can say that the little red yarn was sometimes missed.»
- Give the lab-exrecise more value in the final grade. Now they are only pass-fail and the discussions then value. I think that if the lab-projects influenced the final grade more, people would put more effort in to them. also have small seminars on the articles, to connect them better to the lectures. »
- The reading instructions for the course material could be more clear. »
- Maybe the evaluation process (give more weight for the assignments)»
- The exercises and the written examination seemed like two different paths, one can be easily lost during the course whether to follow the exercises or the literature for examination. It is better to integrate it somehow.»
- course material is so wide to read for exams, reading instructions should be provided.»
- The final examination can be more optional.The questions perhaps can be designed more than 10 problems(e.g 11 or 12 questions) and let students choose 10 of them, because the course is too broad .It is hard to prepare everything from the lecture so that it more flexible to evaluate the overall learning level of students.»
- Clarify goals in assignments. More focus on lectures - make us remember!»
- The LCA. Different cases for the groups! »
- This course is a course that shouldn"t require exams if more weight was put on the group assigments and presentation. »
- The säfsten book. »
- Nothing »
- More discussion of the different results and approaches in the assignments after the seminars. Maybe let the seminars be greater part of the examination of the course (grades and credits for the assignments).»
- The exam in my opinion is too theoretical. »

33. Additional comments

- Can it be aranged so that the MPPEN students get access to the PPU-lab?»
- It would be nice if you could hand out all the bonus points collected from the exercises before the examination. »
- Overall, the literature of this course was vague specially the book and some lectures. The more you read the more you get confused.»
- No comments»
- More guidance in the discussions»
