Traditional engineering and conventional assumptions are no longer sufficient to meet the target goals of factories who want to thrive in today’s competitive global arena. Tomorrow’s engineers must be capable of designing creative, innovative and efficient manufacturing techniques that enable manufacturers to take advantage of economies of scale with flexible engineered processes that allow for the production of more products of different types at greater speed and lower cost. With the approach of Industry 4.0, the manufacturing industry will require increasingly talented professional engineers who can support their operations analytically.
This package aims to equip professionals with the appropriate expertise required to map the scope and applicability of management and support concepts as well as industrial engineering demands. It covers how to achieve and reduce costs, improve quality, enhance delivery reliability and improve all around financial performance. It includes advanced analytical engineering tools, realistic simulations, real-life case studies and time for reflection. Learners will be able to devise innovative solutions to answer specific daily needs with the most appropriate knowledge and skills as they apply advanced engineering techniques and tools to simplify, connect and optimize all the organization’s manufacturing resources.
In short, students will learn how to assess problems analytically as well as devise and articulate solutions to decision makers.
