Course Description

This 60-hour module is part of the Specialist Diploma in Advanced Digital Manufacturing and provides the practical aspects of the important characteristic of a Cyber Physical System (CPS). The state-of-the-art learning equipment called the Cyber Physical Factory will be used to facilitate the learning of creating a digital representation of the production system, the concept of modularity, flexibility that are vital to increasing productivity and adaptability of the production configurations to meet the changing demands of the market requirements.

Participants will be working on the Cyber Physical Factory with hands-on exercises using both the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and Digital Simulation Software in combination.

Course Duration: 60 hours

Course Outcomes

Participants are able to:

  • Understand the benefits of modular design of the CPS enabling high flexibility in production configuration
  • Control and monitor production system with MES
  • Create digital representation of the physical system
  • Analyse and optimise the system configuration digitally to maximise productivity and efficiency prior to actual physical implementation
