At the beginning of the course students are familiar with the waste products
measurement as an innovative source of information industry development in comparison with
European Union. And the possibility of protection and authentication experimentally
data obtained and the final product innovation. Evaluation of measured data according
project (quality assurance, installation dimensions measuring device, experiments to
for research on means of transport). Application of typical practice
and measuring devices to gather information about eligibility and conveyors
handling equipment required to perform operational functions. Evaluation
measurements to select the right contact material for optimal slip ratios
safe operation of the friction drive. Evaluation of measured data in terms of direction
the next cycle of innovation of the design node.
