Be Industry 4.0 ready
Industry 4.0 is the emerging fourth industrial revolution; the next stage in manufacturing. Driven by digitalisation, it connects the impact of emerging technologies and digitalisation across all industries such as energy, transport and infrastructure. Automation and big data analytics are transforming the manufacturing industry, driving new business opportunities through integration with the global supply chain.
The Diploma of Applied Technologies provides the skills and knowledge required for individuals to undertake para-professional technical roles within Industry 4.0 manufacturing and/or engineering environments. In these roles, individuals have the skills and knowledge to use digitalisation techniques that merge traditional and emerging technologies, from product design through to manufacture.
Participants will use a systems approach to troubleshoot every aspect of the ‘smart factory’ and they incorporate concepts of innovation and change to achieve tangible outcomes. They have extensive knowledge of Industry 4.0, customisation, and product life cycle management.
This course is intended to provide participants with a range of knowledge and skills to perform the following functions associated with Industry 4.0 manufacturing and/or engineering environments including:
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAGE Group of Companies and a sister company to SAGE Automation, Skills Lab will provide you with the opportunity to learn from real-life examples and insights.
