Overview

This unit of study aims to cover the skills and knowledge required to holistically optimise information flows using Industry 4.0 tools. The student will learn to research and use various technologies which include modelling software, product lifecycle management (PLM), and augmented reality/virtual reality software.

Learning outcomes

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

  • Use modelling software to research, analyse and classify the current state (Lean and Industry 4.0 maturity) and identify fields of action. (K2, K5, S1)
  • Manage and optimise information flows from ideation to disposal using PLM. (S1, A3 A6)
  • Develop a digital twin using predictive analysis. (K4, S1)
  • Design augmented/virtual reality-based tool to perform an engineering task. (K2, K4, S1)
  • Produce a mobile application to monitor and control an engineering system. (K4, S2, A3)
  • Develop and manage strategies to implement, collaborate, plan, and roadmap an engineering system using Industry 4.0 business models. (K6, S2, A2, A6, A7)

Hurdle

As the minimum requirements of assessment to pass a unit and meet all ULOs to a minimum standard, an undergraduate student must have achieved:

(i) an overall mark for the unit of 50% or more, and(ii) complete all assessments.Students who do not successfully achieve hurdle requirements (i) and (ii) will receive a maximum of 45% as the total mark for the unit.
