The aim of the module is to get familiar with the idea of IIoT during the whole joint curricula give the students “Big Picture” of complicated processes needed for Industry 4.0. The economy is going in the way of industry 4.0 and the understanding of the processes are the key to success.
Industrial IoT involves the connectivity of all aspects of a factory’s assets. This includes production equipment, inventory, supply chain, maintenance, quality and business operations. With the arrival of Industrial IoT, all areas within a factory are impacted and all assets and subsystems are linked together. All those connections together with specialized IoT software allows the creation of a “smart” factory – industry 4.0. The result is a system that can identify trends, take independent and sometimes autonomous action and respond much faster than human intervention to allow efficiency gains previously impossible. Industry 4.0 is something that must be utilized by the whole enterprise to understand and implement its benefits. The aim of the module is to get familiar with the idea of IIoT during the whole joint curricula give the students “Big Picture” of complicated processes needed for Industry 4.0.
