Digitally-enabled Production 7.5 hp

Please note that applications are closed for this course.

This course, Digitally-enabled production, is offered in a collaboration between Mälardalens högskola (MDH), Högskolan Väst (HV) and Linnéuniversitetet (LNU).

The course aims to support and facilitate our partner manufacturing companies to become competitive in digitally-enabled production. During the course, we address the potential prerequisites and capabilities required for implementing industry 4.0 in the context of an overall production system. More specifically, we increase the competence base of companies in three areas—internal logistics systems, virtual factory, and sensor and signal processing—which can holistically interconnect the key components for the successful implementation of industry 4.0.

This course consists of three interconnected course modules at an advanced level and it is offered between September and November 2020:

  • Course gives a possibility for industrial practitioners to work on real industrial cases from their own companies with the expert supervision from three universities.

  • Course supports theory and practical elaboration through laboratory works, experiments, and onsite seminars.

  • Course gives access to experts in each area, which are complimentary to address the complex challenges in industry 4.0 implementation.

  • Course facilitates access to larger industrial network and possibility to exchange ideas and experiences within the network.

  • A possibility to continue with the optional course, 2,5 credits, after the end of 7,5 credits if one like to conduct a business case on industry 4.0 within their company.
