Course Description

Course Summary:

Smart Manufacturing 201 applies the digital manufacturing and Industrie 4.0 concepts discussed in Smart Manufacturing 101 to the entire manufacturing value chain comprising suppliers and customers. The course begins with a definition of the smart manufacturing ecosystem and specifically calls out the smart manufacturing value to all of the stakeholders concerned. The primary focus of smart manufacturing in removing islands and silos within manufacturing enterprises is discussed in detail. Beyond discussing integration of internal departments within an enterprise the course also discusses how external suppliers and customers can be connected for active tracking of strategic and tactical goals across the entire value chain. The course highlights the role of a worker in a smart factory and provides information on how to build a business case for a smart manufacturing transformation.
