Scope of the classes

As part of the International Summer School of the Faculty of Management, entitled "Process modeling", we offer people who would like to learn, the basics of modeling and improving processes in an enterprise. The programme of the summer school is dedicated mainly to foreign students of the first degree, second degree or PhD studies. Polish students can also take part in the summer school. It will be an opportunity for the students to increase their competencies in the selected scientific area and obtain new practical knowledge. 

During the summer school, participants will take part in classes that will allow them to acquire knowledge and skills in such issues as business process management, business process modeling workshop, logistics management, evaluation enterprise effectiveness, modern management methods, and concepts in process improvement with particular use of creative problem-solving methods. A series of subjects will be presented, which will show how to analyze processes in the enterprise and how to make improvements in the enterprises. The modules presenting the idea of the process approach will be an introduction to the whole cycle.  

In addition, during the course, participants will be introduced to the use of FlexSim and IBM WebSphere Business Modeler Advanced in terms of acquiring practical modeling skills and process improvement. The acquired knowledge and skills during the summer school will allow its participants in the future to independently model business, production and logistics processes, and to make improvements and analyze them, taking into account the effectiveness of the proposed solutions. Furthermore, they will learn about creative methods for identifying and searching solutions to improve processes. In the scope of the classes on effectiveness assessment, participants will acquire knowledge and practical skills in the use of indicators of effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity of the enterprise, allowing to assess the validity of the implementation of the proposed solutions to improve processes in the enterprise.
