You will learn machine learning-based solutions for industrial applications, such as smart decision-making and predictive maintenance, using state of the art cloud platform tools.
Med produktionslogistik menas planering, samordning och styrning av det tillverkande företagets materialflöden och resursflöden med utgångspunkt från dess produktionssystem. Området har fått allt större betydelse för företag i takt med dels ökade krav på kortare och säkrare leveranstider, dels ökade krav på mindre kapitalbindning samtidigt som produkter ska kundanpassas.
Kursen fokuseras på grundläggande metodik för den virtuella fabriken inom konceptet industrins digitalisering.
