Was erwartet Sie in diesem Kurs?

The InnoPeer Advanced Manufacturing (AVM) courses offer a practical introduction to the topic of Industrie 4.0. The transformation towards Industrie 4.0 is one of the key challenges for European companies. Traditional factories turn into “smart factories” by adding connectivity and self-intelligence. Components are printed instead of casted or forged, and profit drivers will be data instead of real products. However, technological changes are not the only challenges awaiting companies in the new environment of Industrie 4.0. There are also business-related challenges in the fields of organisation, human resources and the development of new business models, which need to be addressed if a company wants to maintain its market position.

This course focusses on challenges and changes to the technological aspects of a company. It provides technological foundations, e.g. characteristics and differences of data models, the concept of big data or potentials and restrictions of additive manufacturing. These aspects are presented from a deep background knowledge up to the practical application and the benefit from the emerging technologies. The individual and practical focus towards Industrie 4.0 is further ensured by use cases.

Complementary courses offered by InnoPeer AVM include: Organisational Management, Human Resources Management, Business Model Development and Strategy, and another course on Technology.

The course "InnoPeer AVM" forms the basis for a comprehensive further education on current topics in the field of Industrie 4.0. It is funded by the European Union under project number CE1119.
