Production and Logistics

Digitally-enabled Production 7.5 hp

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: Internal Logistics in Industry 4.0, 2.5 credits, MDH, https://www.mdh.se/en/malardalen-university/education/course-syllabus?id=29594 Virtual Factory and Robot Cell Simulation, 2.5 credits, HV, https://admin.hv.se/samverka-med-oss/kompetensutveckling/teknik/kompetensutveckling-inom-produktionsteknik/virtual-factory-and-robot-cell-simulation/ Data Acquisition and Monitoring, 2.5 credits, LNU, https://kursplan.lnu.se/kursplaner/kursplan-4MT017-1.pdf More information about the course is available on the below link: https://www.mdh.se/en/malardalen-university/education/further-training/smart-production/digitally-enabled-production-7.5-hp Apply to the course in the below link:  https://www.mdh.se/en/malardalen-university/education/further-training/smart-production/digitally-enabled-production-7.5-hp/application-form-digitally-enabeled-production-7.5-hp

Industrialization and Time-to-volume

You will acquire knowledge about planning and implementing industrialization activities for achieving a faster time-to-market and time-to-volume with higher quality. During the course you will work on one of your company’s industrialization challenges as a “project case” and analyse ways to tackle them in an efficient way.

Industry 4.0 - Realisation

The course covers digitalisation and automation technologies and their application in smart factories. Technologies covered include simulation and deployment, digital twin, connectivity as an enabler for e.g. predictive maintenance, manufacturing execution systems and robotics.

Optimization of Production Systems

During the course, you will explore a variety of optimization problems related to production systems. You will gain hands-on experience on modern methods for practically simulating and optimizing production systems. You will collaborate in groups towards applying the gained knowledge on your own production cases through state-of-the-art optimization software. At the end of the course, you will be equipped with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience to implement optimization techniques on real-world production systems.

Visualization for Industrial Applications

By taking part in this course you will learn about the role of visualization in industrial applications with a specific focus on Industry 4.0. You will learn how to evaluate and develop production systems and processes that integrate visualization technologies, such as digital twins, virtual and augmented reality and are supported by artificial intelligence.
