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.
The emergence of artificial intelligence has created a new opportunity to apply machine learning (ML) in industry 4.0. In this era of the Internet of Things and Big data, processing of a large amount of data would not be possible without ML. Thus, ML made industrial production smarter than ever before. So, learn the course “Machine learning for Industry 4.0” to bring in new business models in your company and boost productivity using ML.
The course provides knowledge about basics of ML and data, describes ML algorithms and tools and also explains the concept of Industry 4.0 and digitalization in industry 4.0. The individual processes can be better understood and optimized with the help of the knowledge from the course. Also, it could have an important contribution in analysing the industrial data set, improving results, and making decision and/or predictions for failure, demand, sales, and production.
This course is a collaboration between Högskolan Väst, Linnéuniversitetet and Mälardalens Högskola. It consist of three course modules: Introduction to Machine Learning (MDH – 2 credits, Basic level), Industry Digitalization – Industry 4.0 (HV – 2,5 credits, Advanced level), Applied Machine Learning (LNU – 3 credits, Advanced level). Students who pass all three courses will receive a diploma from Learning for Professionals.
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

In this course, you will gain insight in components and technologies included in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Designed specifically for manufacturing sector professionals, the course provides knowledge about the infrastructure, the technologies and requirements needed to generate, transport and manage data in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) system which is one of the main building blocks towards digitalization and smart factories.
It includes project work, laboratory exercises and assignments where the student gets knowledge of different applications of IIoT in the manufacturing industry.
The starting point for the course is Lean Production, with an understanding of principles and concepts that can lead to higher efficiency. Then we introduce computer-based application for modelling and simulation of production systems. This provides the opportunity to simulate a production system, perform experiments on it according to different conditions, and optimize the system to increase efficiency.
This course is for professionals who work with production systems at different levels with a responsibility for individual production lines, departments, or has a role as production manager or production development. The course will mainly focus on the manufacturing industry in application examples, but principles that will be addressed will be applicable to a number of industries, including consulting companies working towards the manufacturing industry.
The course contains the following:
Production systems and concepts such as Industry 4.0 and Smart Industry
Lean Production and workshop with the Lean game
Programming exercises with event-based simulation of production systems
Analysis and optimization of production systems
The majority of the course will take place on Campus (Växjö), and at a distance according to the schedule below. Some of the exercises are preferably attend on Campus, but we plan for it to be possible to follow the full course at a distance due to the Covid-situation.
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.
Would you like to know what Industry 4.0 is about? Then this course is for you!
In the course, we look at enabling technologies of Industry 4.0 from a human and industrial perspective. The course covers many topics and you will learn the basic terminology related to Industry 4.0 as well as insight and understanding of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and how it is set to affect industry and individuals.
