Acquire the basics of digitalized production and focus on the integration of modern information technologies into technical processes. You will be able to successfully implement engineering approaches and concepts. In addition, you'll get to know both the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and the potentials of "front loading."
▶ Machine-2-Machine-Communication / Human-Machine-Interfaces
▶ Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for industrial robotics
▶ Workshop: integrated, collaborative robots and PLM-based robot assembly
▶ Case Study: optimization of an Industry 4.0 production site
Group of participants
The Smart Factory networks and automates machines and plants to autonomously adapt production steps to each other. Product families with numerous variants and shorter and shorter product life cycles require efforts to be shifted to engineering development ("front loading"). With a continuously available planning chain, new product variants can be produced.
In five days of attendance, basic knowledge will be built on the basis of lectures and numerous practical examples and exercises. This is deepened by the practical implementation of a digital planning chain in the Smart Automation Lab of RWTH Aachen University.
