Learning Objectives

Knowledge and understanding. On completion of the course, the student shall 1) know the basic principles of the smart manufacturing according to the novel IC technologies adopted in the modern industry, and 2) understand methodologies and techniques used in industries to realise the “Failure Prediction and Predictive Maintenance” .

Applying knowledge and understanding. On completion of the course, the student will be able to select the appropriate technological solutions in predictive maintenance.

Making judgements. On completion of the course, the student will be able to choose a suitable data science model for each of the subjects treated inside the course.

Communication skills. On completion of the course, the student can communicate his conclusions and recommendations about data science applications in smart manufacturing with the argumentation of the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to both specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously.

Learning skills. On completion, the student will be able to continue to study in a manner that may be largely selfdirected or autonomous.


Course Structure

The aim of the course is to provide an in-depth introduction to i) the basic principles of the smart manufacturing in the modern industry; ii) basic principles on management problems of a production plants, with particular enphasis on failure management and predictive maintenance; iii) the most important methodologies and techniques used in industries to realise the “Failure Prediction and Predictive Maintenance”
