Curriculum

Module 1

This course will expose you to the transformation taking place, throughout the world, in the way that products are being designed and manufactured.

The transformation is happening through digital manufacturing and design (DM&D) -a shift from paper-based processes to digital processes in the manufacturing industry.

By the end of this course, you'll understand what DMD is and how it is impacting careers, practices and processes in companies both large and small.

Module 2

This course will help you recognize how the "digital thread" is the backbone of the digital manufacturing and design (DM&D) transformation, turning manufacturing processes from paper-based to digital-based.

You will have a working understanding of the digital thread -the stream that starts at product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product's life cycle -and identify opportunities to leverage it.

Module 3

In this course, you will dig into the transformation taking place in how products are designed and manufactured throughout the world.

It is the second of two courses that focuses on the "digital thread" -the stream that starts at the creation of a product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product life cycle.

Learn how the digital thread can fit into product development processes in an office, on a shop floor, and even across an enterprise.

Module 4

Through this course, students will learn why performing advanced analysis of manufacturing processes is integral for diagnosing and correcting operational flaws in order to improve yields and reduce costs.

Gain insights into the best ways to collect, prepare and analyze data, as well as computational platforms that can be leveraged to collect and process data over sustained periods of time.

Module 5

Learn how the integration of smart sensors and controls are helping to improve productivity.

You'll be exposed to various sensors and sensing techniques, process control strategies, and open architecture systems that can be leveraged to enable intelligent machining.

This course will prepare you to contribute to the implementation of intelligent machining projects.

Module 6

This course will make students aware of what a digitally connected enterprise is, as they learn about the operational complexity of enterprises, business process optimization and the concept of an integrated product-process-value chain.

Students will become acquainted with the available tools, technologies and techniques for aggregation and integration of data throughout the manufacturing supply chain and entire product life-cycle.

They will receive foundational knowledge to assist in efforts to facilitate design, planning, and production scheduling of goods and services by applying product life cycle data.

Module 7

This course will introduce students to why creating a strong and secure infrastructure should be of paramount concern for anyone operating in the DM&D domain, and measures that can be employed to protect operational technologies, systems and resources.

Acquire knowledge about security needs and the application of information security systems.

Build the foundational skills needed in performing a risk assessment of operational and information technology assets.

Gain valuable insights of implementing controls to mitigate identified risks.

Module 8

MBSE is where the model resulting from the evolution of system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities is the focus of design and manufacturing.

Students will gain an understanding of systems engineering, the model-based approach to design and manufacturing, the Digital Twin, and a roadmap toward a model-based enterprise.

Develop the knowledge necessary to perform a baseline assessment of an organization's potential to leverage MBSE.

Module 9

Learners will create a roadmap to achieve their own personal goals related to the digital manufacturing and design (DM&D) profession, which will help them leverage relevant opportunities.

The culminating project provides a tangible element to include in their professional portfolios that showcases their knowledge of Industry 4.0.
