A productive facility layout is vital in all manufacturing companies. However, there is a knowledge gap in deploying and using state of the art 3D digital facility layout design tools in engineering and manufacturing companies. DigitalPlan will offer a learning path that will equip engineering and manufacturing employees, especially from SMEs, as well as engineering students and professionals to understand in depth the theory and practice related to facility layout design and planning, using digital manufacturing solutions.
The digitalisation of engineering and manufacturing activities goes hand in hand with improved management practices and corporate performance but a vast majority of the engineering and manufacturing workforce lacks the necessary digital skills. The DigitalPlan learning path is an opportunity for academic / technological institutions and companies to upskill students and staff towards expanding their digital manufacturing capabilities.
