Manufacturers are increasingly utilizing machine tools that are self-aware – they perceive their own states and the state of the surrounding environment – and are able to make decisions related to machine activity processes. This is called intelligent machining, and through this course students will receive a primer on its background, tools and related terminology.
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.
Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos.
This is the fifth course in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology specialization that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established DMD-related professional goal.
Who is this class for: This course is for anyone interested in how digital advances are changing the landscape and capabilities of manufacturing, from high school graduates exploring careers to operations managers and business owners hungry for an understanding of the newest manufacturing technologies.
Course 5 of 10 in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology Specialization.
