Intelligent Manufacturing Systems

The Certificate in Intelligent Manufacturing Systems is a Level 9 programme which aspires to bridge the gap between the engineering operations and information technology paradigms in the manufacturing sector. Smart Manufacturing has been described as the synthesis of advanced manufacturing capabilities and digital technologies to produce highly customisable products faster, cheaper, better, and greener. A smart factory will integrate data from system-wide physical, operational, and human assets to drive manufacturing, maintenance, inventory tracking and the digitisation of operations in order to achieve this goal.
