(D) Elective Courses for all Tracks (TMA)

(TMA 0621) Value Engineering and Management (2, 0, 2)

Value engineering/ Value analysis/ Value management is a method to optimize savings during design / procurement / execution processes without sacrificing quality, functionally or client’s needs, requirements and specifications. Value analysis/ value engineering is a step by step analysis and a proven problem solving methodology. The course introduces the concept of value analysis, engineering and management and demonstrates their applications and techniques. The course outlines: What are value engineering, value analysis and value management? Value engineering concepts and principles, Function, cost and worth, Value engineering application, Life cycle costing (LCC), Value Engineering job plan methodology, Multi-discipline team approach, Team member selection, Conducting a value Engineering study. The information phase; The function analysis phase: FAST diagrams, Cost/value & cost /worth ratios; The speculative/creative phase; The evaluation / judgement phase: Criteria Scoring Matrix, Criteria Weighting Matrix; The development phase; The recommendation and presentation phase; The implementation and follow-up phase

(TMA 0622) Quality Management: (2, 0, 2)

The course introduces the concepts of quality and total quality management and its applications. At the end of this course, the student will understand the underlying philosophy of TQM, Programs for Quality Improvement, Quality Modeling and Techniques and Quality Cost. Students will develop skills in understanding complex industrial and service processes in a comprehensive way. Students will enhance their skills that can be applied to process improvement and economic analysis. The course includes: Concepts of quality (Inspection, Quality control, quality assurance, TQM); Modeling process quality; Control charts for variables and attributes; Control charts and Process capability analysis; Acceptance Sampling; ISO and its applications; Tools and practical application of TQM; Benchmarking; and Baldridge award.

(TMA 623) Simulation (2, 0, 2)

Students should familiarize with modeling types, modeling simulation phases, probability and statistics in simulation, distribution theory and types, random numbers generation, stochastic events (variates) generation, queuing method, and business and industrial applications. Students will also learn the theory on which simulation of discrete systems depends, will be able to identify features of the process with components of the mode, and will learn the various phases of developing a successful simulation model.

(TMA 624) Health and Safety Management : (2, 0,2)

This course provides students with the fundamentals of measurement, evaluation, regulation, and control of hazardous conditions, toxic substances, physical agents, OSHA regulations and basis for a successful safety program and dangerous processes in industrial operations. It includes: The history of occupational safety; Cost of occupational accidents and injuries; Theories of accident causation; The Occupational Safety and Health Act; Worker's Compensation; The identification, Analysis and control of a variety of occupational hazards including ergonomic hazards, falls, machinery, temperature, electricity, pressure, fire and noise; Safety training; Safety program development; Accident analysis; Proactive safety analysis and safety ethics.

(TMA 625) Risk Management: (2, 0, 2)

Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events. Risks can come from uncertainty in financial markets, project failures, legal liabilities, credit risk, accidents, natural causes and disasters as well as deliberate attacks from an adversary. All the above is highlighted in the course, with specific emphasis on the following: Risk management overview, Importance of risk management, Types of risks, Sources of risk, Risk factors, Modeling risk, Risk identification, Risk evaluation and assessment, Risk mitigation, Risk response strategies.
