In this course students learn how to assess and effectively use digital factory methods and tools.
The course deals with the following topics:
Students gain the following specialist skills: Students learn about digital tools for work planning as well as how to use them in the following areas:
In addition, students learn to:
Technical skills: 55% | Methodological skills: 20% | Systems expertise: 20% | Social competences: 5%
|Course||Type||Credits||Course hours per week||C/E/CE|
|IT Solutions for Digital Factory||Lecture||3||2||C|
|IT Solutions for Digital Factory||Tutorial||3||2||C|
During this course students learn how IT is used to support work planning; the areas of use, applications, and functionality of digital factory tools; as well as methods and approaches to digital manufacturing process planning, modeling, and simulation to evaluate the manufacturability of products. They thus gain the skills to understand and use digital tools for work planning and evaluate the manufacturability of products as well as related production processes. Students apply the knowledge acquired during lectures in an interdisciplinary, practical team project, where they design, plan, and construct a digital factory for virtual operation. The project gives students the opportunity to apply digital factory IT tools for modeling and simulating assembly processes, material flow simulation, building planning, tolerance simulation, and virtual commissioning, while also gaining experience with issues relevant to industry.
This course teaches students how to assess and effectively use digital factory methods and tools as well as assess the manufacturability of products and implementation of processes.

All course materials are provided in ISIS (see Quick links above).
The tutorial is conducted as a project. At the beginning of the semester, students complete practical exercises over two weeks, learning how to apply methodology and use software. This is followed by a project kick-off, where teams of 4-8 are assigned a task. Project results are presented in two design reviews. The course concludes with a final presentation at the end of the semester.
