The educational cooperation in Poland - Czech Republic with use of eu funds - case study

Abstract: The paper presents the way of implementing cross-border cooperation in the field of exchange of experiences between universities located on both sides of the border. The use of mathema-tical methods in production engineering are the subjects concerned in the cooperation. The common activities and experiences of each party should indicate directions for developing new or modifying existing mathematical methods. As a result of these efforts, mechanisms will be implemented to bring existing mathematical rules into line with needs and conditions, taking into account the technologi-cal, organizational and structural differences that occur between neighboring countries. The article presents the actions taken by the universities educating engineers: Silesian University of Technology (Poland) and the Higher School of Mining and Metallurgy in Ostrava (Czech Republic). To achieve this, the EU funds under the Structural Funds were raised. The project is cofinanced by the European Regional Development Fund "Przekraczamy Granice" and from the state budget of Poland. The main objective of the project are conferences involving project developers and entrepreneurs, service pro-viders from the border area (support area).

Application of it tools to study the effectiveness of the use of mining machines

Abstract: In order to objectively and reliably determine the effectiveness of machines, it is necessary to use data recorded by the industrial automation systems. At present, these systems are very expanded and register many parameters of the machines’ work. This data is used mainly to diagnose the work of these machines. The paper assumes that this data will be the basis for determining the effectiveness of machines. A large amount of this data requires the use of the appropriate IT tools for archiving, synchronizing and analytically processing. The article discusses the basic tools which can be used in this process and shows an example of their practical use. These tools are databases, data warehouses and IT platforms. Their practical use is presented in the example of a longwall shearer and armoured face conveyor.

Change management procedurs through the product engineering change orders

Abstract: If the company is large, any new change in the product is the risk of a collision between versions and consequently leads to manufacturing mistakes. Using small-business document management methods used in large enterprises can lead to over-formalisation of the design process and, consequently, deprivation of flexibility.

Impact of selected environmental and flight data parameters on fuel consumption of the jet transport aircraft – initial analysis

Abstract: Every enterprise aims at maximizing economic yield, including air carrier enterprises. Optimization of direct operating costs related to aircraft operation is a key contributor to economic yield. Fuel consumption constitutes the biggest single direct operating cost for all air carriers, therefore its optimization is of utmost importance. Identification of environmental factors and flight data parameters affecting it is crucial. This article presents initial analysis of selected environmental factors and flight data parameters influencing fuel consumption for distinctively selected flight phases. Analysis given below should be treated as preliminary, giving introduction to the more ad-vanced elaborations.

Support the process of timetable scheduling for an educational course – timetable verification

Abstract: The article presents solutions applied to verify the correctness of a timetable being developed using an IT tool supporting the process of timetable scheduling for an educational course. The tool being addressed was originally created in a spreadsheet by following the author’s signature con-cept of “Microtools Based on the Relational Data Model”. In the part dedicated to establishing the functionality assumed for the solution in question, main conditions to be satisfied in order for the timetable to be verified as correct have been determined. The data structure identified for the pro-blem analysed has been illustrated using the Entity Relationship Diagram in line with the CASE Method. The manner in which this structure is implemented in a spreadsheet has been discussed. The most important section of the study provides a detailed description of the proposed solutions enab-ling verification of all the pre-defined conditions. In closing paragraphs of the article, all spreadsheet elements which enabled the assumed functionality to be achieved have been identified.
