About the Course

There are opportunities throughout the design process of any product to make significant changes, and ultimately impact the future of manufacturing, by embracing the digital thread. In this course, you will dig into the transformation taking place in how products are designed and manufactured throughout the world. It is the second of two courses that focuses on the "digital thread" – the stream that starts at the creation of a product concept and continues to accumulate information and data throughout the product life cycle. Hear about the realities of implementing the digital thread, directly from someone responsible for making it happen at a company. Learn how the digital thread can fit into product development processes in an office, on a shop floor, and even across an enterprise. Be prepared to talk about the benefits, and limitations, of enacting it. Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos. This is the third 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.

Buen Curso, al igual que los anteriores, muy bien explicado por el profesor, con buenos ejemplos y a un ritmo ameno.

Es una pena que sea tan corto, creo que el tema da para mucho más. Los cursos anteriores que forman parte de este programa también están muy bien estructurados y explicados, es decir, muy buen nivel pedagógico. Quizás por poner algún pero, la mayoría de los links son de USA y esto no ayuda a los que trabajamos en UE, por lo que creo que debería haber más links focalizados en Europe.

It is a good course to gain awareness about the field of Digital transformation in manufacturing before diving into detailed learning.

My only complaint is that some of the videos either did not load or did not work. Some of the videos were also dated as is some of the material. When it comes to computing technology you can't teach 5 or 6 year old material.

Quite a few of the resources are no longer available, and occasionally the self-check quizzes include questions relating to topics not yet covered. This whole course could use a scrub through.
