Who is this program for?
Today, the manufacturing industry is in the midst of transitioning to the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0, also known as smart manufacturing, resulting in the transformation of businesses and the workforce at an unprecedented pace through exponential technologies and changes. "Smart" manufacturers who embrace Industry 4.0 are improving profits and creating more jobs. The use of technologies such as AI/ML, Robotics, Additive Manufacturing (3D printing), IoT, and Cloud Computing have opened-up opportunities and accelerated development while increasing efficiency and effectiveness. To successfully implement new technology and run operations, this requires a workforce that possesses "digital dexterity." Employees must understand the industry's manufacturing, processes, and digital tools that support its operations. For many organizations, this means hiring new talent or providing additional training to their existing workforce.

Excellent course on a very important topic. Smart Manufacturing will be a key industry discussion in the coming years. This course helps one understand the challenges and opportunities that manufacturing companies will encounter in transitioning to Industry 4.0. Course was very well structured and provided a great general understanding to the principles and concepts of Smart Manufacturing. Highly recommended and encourage this course for anyone interested in enhancing their knowledge about Industry 4.0.
Overall, the design and appearance of the course material was well-done. And having the opportunity to run through the program at your own pace was a great advantage. I had the opportunity to sign up for this program more out of curiosity and most of the material was already known to me but I still enjoyed the smooth flow of the progress through the modules.
