About the Course

This course will expose you to the transformation taking place, throughout the world, in the way that products are being designed and manufactured. The transformation is happening through digital manufacturing and design (DM&D) – a shift from paper-based processes to digital processes in the manufacturing industry. By the end of this course, you’ll understand what DMD is and how it is impacting careers, practices and processes in companies both large and small. You will gain an understanding of and appreciation for the role that technology is playing in this transition. The technology we use every day – whether it is communicating with friends and family, purchasing products or streaming entertainment – can benefit design and manufacturing, making companies and workers more competitive, agile and productive. Discover how this new approach to making products makes companies more responsive, and employees more involved and engaged, as new career paths in advanced manufacturing evolve. Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos. This is the first course in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology specialization that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” aka Industry 4.0, and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established DMD-related professional goal.

The videos are of a reasonable quality, but the quizzes and self-assessment sections are total garbage. The questions read like they have been written in a different language and then run through google translate - they are riddled with grammatical errors. The free text responses for the practice quizzes are pointless given they will not be reviewed by a human being.

This course is just definitions... and the next one as well. I was expecting a few more technical examples or exercises (mixed with their accompanying definitions), but I will check another course that is not so academic.

according to me this course includes less of learning and is not advised for the students, its mainly for the people who want to introduce digital manufacturing into their workplace.

Course is completely outdated, information and reading parts are not up to date.

Some of the referring articles does not exits like the one from about Industry 4.0 Effects.

Quiz part is not so satisfactory only writing is enough to pass in some sections but not all.
