  • One Semester or equivalent

Contact hours

  • 36 hours Face to Face + blended

On-campus unit delivery combines face-to-face and digital learning.

Aims and objectives

This unit aims to give students practical experience in the application and design of the hardware-based tools of Industry 4.0. These include flexible and configurable production lines, sensors, actuators and networking devices.  
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Understand the concepts of value creation and capture in a production process (A2, K3, K4)
2. Analyze a production requirement and design a process that is optimized for value creation and capture that will fulfill that requirement (A3, A4, S1, S3)
3. Design a production process that takes an integrated approach to the use of hardware to manipulate goods and software to capture and process data for value creation and capture (A5, A6, K1, K3, K5, S1, S2, S3, S4)
