41106 Collaborative Innovation for Industry 4.0




Advanced manufacturing, and particularly Industry 4.0, connects processes and machines within, but also across, organisations. This complexity, along with the interdisciplinary nature of advanced manufacturing, requires a range of expert skills and capabilities to plan and implement advanced manufacturing elements. Students identify, select and work with innovation partners to enable companies to plan and implement advanced manufacturing. The content is structured around central questions:

  • When should companies collaborate in the process of planning and implementing advanced manufacturing?
  • Who are possible innovation partners for advanced manufacturing?
  • What are possible intensities and forms of collaboration in the context of advanced manufacturing?
  • What are the most appropriate methods for collaborating with external partners and what methods and tools are suitable for collaboration in the context of advanced manufacturing?
