- Study format:
- Certificate of Attendance
- German or English
Develop an understanding for the challenges of heterogeneous production environments and discover basic technologies for digital networking. In addition, you will acquire the basics of information modeling and will be able to apply them in production using interface technologies.
▶ Communication for the Internet of Things
▶ Interface standards for machine-to-machine communication
▶ Information modelling and information management in production networks
▶ Case study: Integration of Data and Real-Time Optimization
Group of Participants
You are an engineer from the fields of mechanical and/or electrical engineering with basic knowledge of communication in computer networks.
Networked production creates interoperability between formerly proprietary encapsulated systems. By means of continuous communication between the components of a production network, intelligent, self-learning and self-regulating systems are created that autonomously optimize themselves based on current sensor technology. By efficiently processing and analyzing data, companies can react to changing conditions almost in real time and adaptively readjust their production.
The course takes place on three consecutive days and ends with an exam. Course content is developed and consolidated in interactive lectures, group work, presentations and case studies.
