- The literature was useless. It had no examples what so ever.» (Small extent)
- Jag avnvände mestadels mina anteckingnar. Kanske skulle jag ha köpt boken men det är inte huvudgrunden varför tentan inte gick bra.» (Small extent)
- The second part of the book was to teoretical to be useful.» (Some extent)
- The lectures were quite extensive, so the course material was used as secondary source.» (Some extent)
- The lecture notes where okay. But please have the figure referred to in the text on the same page as the explaining text! One more thing is that some things are explained so many times and with so many words, that very simple theory appears like quantum physics and confuses the reader in its attempt to REALLY EXPLAIN... » (Some extent)
- When it was available...» (Large extent)
- more material would be better, i think more material than nessecery is sometimes good because it could improve the overall knowledge.» (Large extent)

- Hade ju varit bra mycket bättre om litteraturen kunde komma ut lite innan föreläsningarna så att man skulle kunna förbereda sig lite bättre. Men det var ju ändå starkt jobbat av Bele att skriva lit. samtidigt som kursen fortskrider! Så problemet jag tar upp kommer vara borta till nästa år...» (Very badly)
- Bengt obviously did his very best to make this work and strained himself to the limit. Whith this said its still not a very good excuse for how the administration worked. If bengts workload was to high to accept this course he shouldn"t have accepted it and if no one else was available, the institution have some arganizational problems that in the end affects the quality of the teaching and probarly Bengts health...» (Very badly)
- supremica doesn"t work on the cumputers at school» (Rather badly)
- The file update was too late.» (Rather badly)

- timedemanding» (Good)
- Det var trevligt och nyttigt.» (Good)
- There was a clear red thread through the whole course.» (Good)
- Very good course, taking into account it was the first year!» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The literature »
- BeLe made some good connections to reality when explaining automaton etc.»
- Jonas as lecturer»
- the good administration and info»
- Jonas Fredriksson»
- A big hand-in that is worked on through the whole course.»
- more PLC practice»
- the PLC-lab»
- all of the parts taught inside this project must be preserved»
- the hand-ins and the litterature and bengt»
- beeing there for the students, which you always are!»
- The laboration and the energy of the tutor.»
- The laboration, the excerciseclasses.»
- I think all materials shall be preserved »
- The excercise papers, these were really good.»
- Maybe as revised version of the lecture notes.»
- The hand-ins were good»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- change some sensors for the robot-lab. »
- The laboration that was almost identical to the laboration in the course Industriautomation last year. It would be nice to write, analyze and implement an automaton instead.»
- Some more contence and not as slow speed in lectures»
- The lab process should be repaired. It did not work very well.»
- There has been too much explaining on certain things, such as petri nets and how the tokens move. Move on and don"t overexplain things!»
- The tempo could be higher. »
- The literature.»
- Maybe the wide area of assignments and knowledge.»
- More and better feedback on the hand-in. After putting several days into a hand-in, some real feedback on would be nice. Becaus this is the first course in MPSYS there should be forced groups, at least for the student following that program.»
- none»
- Get a practical assignment on how to implement a superviser/controller.»
- considering he nature of the course it could have been of great help if some major references for this course had been introduced and this should be considered for the next year.»
- the litterture, finish it»
- the exercises»
- more stuff, for a 7,5 course its to little, we want to lern more.»
- The exercises are not similar to what is lectured, the lectures are always very simple and nice but the excersises are tougher. Maybe a complete book?»
- Results should not be posted on the notice-board, as it"s against Chalmers-rules.»
- No idea»
- Well the literature is done now so it won"t pose a problem next year. Otherwise I don"t think there are any major problem areas.»
- The administration. Make sure that the teacher actually have the time it takes to teach!»
- Much more examples during the lectures, less theory.»

16. Additional comments

- One of the first course where it felt as I was on the road to work as an engineer. You had to do real engineering assumptions about modelling problems to be able to solve them.»
- useful course»
- No comments»
