WEBINAR: Manufacturing and Industrial Insights and Tendencies

Manufacturing and Industrial Insights and Tendencies

Webinar description

This webinar is taught by one of our partner universities, University of Tartu offers a distinctive approach by comprehensively examining the historical progression of tool design, tracing its evolution from manual drafting techniques to the era of digital transformation. It provides practical insights into the influence of digital supply chains by utilizing real-world platforms such as Fractory.

Additionally, the curriculum explores the intricate realm of artificial intelligence (AI) and expert systems, particularly in the context of process design and planning. By focusing on these cutting-edge technologies, the course emphasizes the emergence of novel business opportunities at the convergence of technology and design, underscoring the dynamic interplay between innovation and entrepreneurship in contemporary industry landscapes.

Day 1 – 30 May 2024

Migration of meaning and evolution of tool design: How the design and drafting tools have influenced and determined how we manage information. The journey from drafting with pencil, compass and ruler to the model based definitions and product manufacturing information. How the way we record the true and exact information has shifted through the time and how this has lead to the current era of digital transformation.

Digital Supply Chain: How the model based definitions and embedded product manufacturiing information enable automatic quoting and fully digital supply chain. Demonstrated on the example of the cloud manufacturing platform Fractory.

Day 2 – 31 May 2024

Migration of meaning and evolution of tool design (Continued): How the new knowledge and new business is created on the border of what is possible.

Automatic process design and process planning using AI and Expert Systems: How the model based definitions and embedded product manufacturiing information enable automatic process design and advanced production scheduling using Artificial Intelligence tools and expert systems. On the example of a furniture manufacturing company case study.
