Course Aims

The objective of this course is to provide engineering managers an overview of technologies associated with smart intelligent manufacturing, such that they can make better decisions when exploring smart manufacturing in their own organizations. 
The fourth Industrial revolution, particularly the industrial Internet of things (IIoT), has brought enormous changes to the manufacturing industry. For manufacturers, the implications of this emerging "Industrial Internet of Things" are huge. Manufacturers must begin to transform existing business processes and leverage the possibilities offered by IIoT and advanced data analytics. This course provides an overview of technologies used in smart manufacturing. We focus on IIoT, advanced analytics, intelligent quality control, additive manufacturing and process automation. Some time will also be spent to understand the historical context and the business case associated with smart manufacturing implementation.
