Professional Education: Digitally-enabled Production

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, Digitally-enabled production, is offered in a collaboration between Mälardalens högskola, Högskolan Väst and Linnaeus University.

It consists of three interconnected course modules at an advanced level and it is offered between September and November 2020:
