Digital manufacturing and design technology
Master in Connected Industry 4.0 (Plan: 426 - Estudio: 357)

Coordinating teacher: GOMEZ GARCIA, MARIA JESUS

Department assigned to the subject: Mechanical Engineering Department

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Basic training in industrial engineering: knowledge of technical drawing, and basic concepts of mechanical engineering
BASIC COMPETENCES CB7 That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study CB8 That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments CB9 That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that sustain them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way GENERAL COMPETENCES CG1 Knowledge and understanding of the theoretical foundations of both industrial processes and services, and communications. CG2 Ability to model, identify basic requirements and analyze various processes. CG4 Knowledge and understanding of the management principles applicable to productive and service environments. CG6 Capacity to adapt to changes in requirements associated with new products, new specifications and environments. SPECIFIC COMPETENCES CE1 Ability to design automatic process systems (production machinery, transport and storage systems and quality control) and the interconnection between their different modules (industrial protocols) CE7 Ability to apply the communication of devices, both among them and globally, in the environment of Connected Industry 4.0 CE9 Ability to identify computer security requirements in connected industry environments CE10 Programmatic data processing capabilities in solving particular problems of the connected industry CE11 Ability to design customizable and adaptable mechanical parts and objects LEARNING RESULT After completing this subject matter, the student will be able to: - Analyze the new digital production systems under the model of IC4.0 and the study of demand. Know the new technologies of digital product production: additive production, rapid prototyping, total quality control, etc. - Design new flexible production systems of low and medium complexity that are capable of producing on demand - Manage the production of a medium-sized system and manage the supply
